The Brain Science Podcast has been nominated as the Best Science Podcast in the Ninth Annual People's Choice Podcast Awards. Voting runs from November 1-15 at http://podcastawards.com. Listeners are allowed to vote up to once a day and since we are up against several large radio shows I am encouraging listeners to vote as often as they can.
- BSP 102 is an interview with Dr. Allen Frances, author of Saving Normal: An Insider's Revolt Against Out-of-Control Psychiatric Diagnosis, DSM-5, Big Pharma, and the Medicalization of Ordinary Life.
- BSP 101 is an interview with Seth Grant. Dr Grant was first interviewed back in BSP 52. Grant has pioneered the study of evolution of the synapse. In this interview we discuss the growing evidence that changes in the synapse were critical to the subsequent evolution of complex brains and nervous systems.
