Lab Lockdown #3: Steve Rathje
This is Cognitive Revolution, my show about the personal side of the intellectual journey. Each week, I interview an eminent scientist, writer, or academic about the experiences that shaped their ideas. The show is available wherever you listen to podcasts.
Steve is a PhD student in social psychology at Cambridge. He recently published an article on Psychology Today about the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic from the perspective of social psychology. I thought it touched on a lot of great points, and so I wanted to have him on the show to go into it a bit deeper. We also talked about adjusting work expectations to match our new mode of cooped-up existence, the implications of the pandemic for the theatre industry, whether the "War on a Hidden Enemy" metaphor lands from a psychology perspective, and what's going to be different once we're on the other side of this thing.
