Podcast #22 The Placebo Effect

Kate Rusk recorded and live streamed this episode on the science channel Inertia TV in March, 2018.


Kate, Coffee Brown, and I discussed the power of the placebo effect, what it means for the evolution of the brain, and the evolution of social behavior. We riff on martial arts, mind over matter, religion, acupuncture, alternative medicine, and much more. This episode is in two parts – I did not record an intro to part 2, it just plunges right in.

Here are the slides we discuss in the podcast: The Placebo Effect
