This week Meaghan teaches us about the good samaritan experiment that was held at a seminary in the 70's.

    45. WKWD Blooper Reel ;)

    9:28

    It's been just over one year of WKWD, and you know what we've learned? Well, lots about psychology, obviously, but lots about podcasting too. One of the greatest lessons from the past year is that Marta and Meaghan are prone to making mistakes. Seriously! So. many. bloopers. We've gathered up some of our funniest screw ups from the past year and have packed them all together in a nice little bundle for you! Happy New Year listeners, and thanks for listening to us blather on all this time. Cheers to 2019!     If you're still reading this description (does anyone actually read these descriptions?), you might be the kind of person who likes to write as well.

    43. Gender Dysphoria

    1:08:39

    The moral of today's story is that it's effing hard to have an open and honest conversation while being politically correct. See for yourselves as Meaghan teaches Marta about gender dysphoria, and the difference between sex and gender (a lesson that Marta doesn't seem to grasp). We also talk about:  Gender dysphoria and gender identity Classification, diagnosis, and treatment of gender dysphoria One of Meaghan's top 5 favourite Star Trek Episodes (yes, we went there) Transgender politics and how to have a dialogue while remaining respectful (spoiler: its hard as heck) Sources: Paula Stone TED Talk: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lrYx7HaUlMY Shannon Thrace TED Talk: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M3mnUMmUAHQ The Economist: "Transgender Politics Focuses on Who Determines Someone's Gender": https://www.economist.com/briefing/2018/10/25/transgender-politics-focuses-on-who-determines-someones-gender Socials: If you're still reading this description, you might be the kind of person who likes to write as well?

    42. Not Criminally Responsible (NCR)

    1:06:40

    The Canadian Criminal Code dictates that there are two ways a person can escape immediate prosecution for a crime. Both centre around the mental health of the offender. One option, is to be deemed not criminally responsible, and the other is the be deemed unfit to stand trial. In today’s episode we talk about both of these outcomes, and what happens in order to get deemed not criminally responsible, and what that means for your prosecution. Is it a get out of jail free card? Marta and Meaghan don’t think so, but we’ll let you come to your own conclusions.

    47:45

    Today Marta gets opinionated while talking about the law, a topic which she knows nothing about.

    37. Dementia and Alzheimer's Explained

    50:43

    This week, Meaghan and Marta discuss the very real and rather heartbreaking topic of Alzheimer's and Dementia.

Topics: -the Three Things you need to diagnose something -why Alzheimers and Dementia are such a popular topic of research right now -Brain Food and what you can do to lower your risk of Alzheimers Also discussed are some very cool studies and TED Talks found while researching this topic.
