Wait But Why? Unraveling Life’s Biggest Mysteries with Tim Urban

by Scott Barry Kaufman, March 22, 2017

We are huge fans of Tim Urban’s Wait But Why blog, so it was a great joy to speak with him for today’s show. In this episode of The Psychology Podcast, we experience Tim’s patented wry wit and deep philosophical insight as we chat across a wide range of topics, including Tim’s journey to becoming one of the internet’s most popular bloggers, his creative process and self-regulation strategies, his views on our immediate governmental future, the relative importance of personality traits, the connection between the brain and consciousness, cryonics, and much more. Tim has some wonderfully clear and entertaining mind experiments that spur some high-level discussions of some of the most fascinating psychological and philosophical mysteries of existence. Check out Tim’s bio here
