I’m working on a Psychology question and need guidance to help me study.
Required length: At least 20 sentences cite any references in APA format
The NPR podcast Hidden Brain (in the link below) explores various psychology topics.
You can listen to this podcast in the link below or in Apple podcast, Spotify, etc. Note that the link below also includes full written transcripts of each episode:

Your assignment here is to browse some of the episodes in this podcast and pick ONE episode that relates to some field/theme of psychology and is interesting to you (note that when you scroll to the bottom of the episode list and click “Load more stories”, there are many more episodes to choose from).
Listen to your chosen episode in full and write a post in the discussion below in which you include the following (in at least 20 sentences total):
1. Identify the episode you picked and summarize the specific psychology information from the episode that you find interesting. Optionally, you can also explain why you picked this episode/why you find this particular episode interesting (but if you have personal reasons, you don’t have to share them unless you want to).
2. Find at least one academic source about the psychology-related aspects of the information in the podcast. If applicable, this could be our textbook (and might be a chapter we have not covered in the class). Or it could be an scientific peer-reviewed article, a reliable academic website or video, or another book. Discuss how the academic source addresses/confirms/challenges the information in the podcast. Cite the academic source(s) in APA format (in-text citations and a reference list). You don’t need to use APA format citations when you refer to the podcast itself as long as you clearly identify the name of the relevant episode.
3. Share your opinions and possible critique about the episode (e.g. was the information presented in an engaging way, or was it boring, annoying, etc; was something missing? Or too much information?). If you relate to something in the episode and want to share about your own life experiences or observations, feel free to include it in your post (but sharing personal experiences is not required).
The required minimum length of your podcast post is at least 20 full sentences (not including the reference list). There is no limitation on the maximum number of sentences.
IMPORTANT: In addition to submitting your post in the discussion below, submit your podcast post in the PLAGIARISM CHECK (underneath the assignment itself) to get a Vericite score. See the instructions there. I will not grade this assignment without the Vericite plagiarism score.
