  • Summary

  • We enter the Magic Lab, where science and magic meets. We explore how the brain is prey to a whole range of cognitive defaults and errors which impair our ability to make choices which are in our best interests. Derren reveals the mistakes our brains make, but also identifies ways to avoid them – including the cunning Decoy Effect, which causes excessive popcorn consumption.

The illusion of free choice, review by Tevin Gongo

I really like Derren, I could not resist the opportunity to learn from the expert of the human behaviour. I was expecting something more in depth but as a 30 minute episode, this is really well done. Let's say that it is a good intro to topics worth paying attention to.
