661: Pavlov Exposed, Gamer Identity, & Online Harassment


Show Notes

Happy Halloween, Brainiacs! Today we’re getting spoooooky. We hear why the story of Pavlov, his dogs, and that damn bell are not at all accurate, and we’ve been living a lie. We hear why “gamer identity” makes them more prone to bigotry and radicalization. Plus, Sarah explains what it’s like to be harassed online, how it makes you see people differently overall, and why it’s way more common than we realized. And she offers specific techniques for dealing with the feeling that the whole (online) world is against you. And in honor of Halloween, Susie tries to talk Sarah into dying her hair black again.
