So many inferences made subjectively by the researcher. Whatever happened to the scientific method? Too many possible influences ignored here.

Such a powerful episode! I am still reeling from the horror and reality of this story. Thank you! I care for two intellectually disabled women who have lived with me for 17 years. Their lives matter!

Seemed like a lot of repeat content from the episode "Man Up".

Smart water sponsorship? Seems pretty dumb for a science-based program to be peddling plastic water bottles.

the ways men have abused women throughout history and even still today breaks my heart. I feel for all of my sisters who have been attacked, persecuted, and blamed for men's wrong doings.

I want to know about the science of our relationships with animals as pets and why some people lack the drive or natural ability for such relationships. Traditional pets, such as cats and dogs, appear to be almost as integral as children for much of society.

My heart aches for John. I'm so sorry he had to experience relationships in such a negative way the first time.

it's a fascinating episode but the editing errors in this cast are really kind of egregious - the track will spontaneousky skip back 10 seconds, some segments are totally lost by skipping ahead. I'm not pocket dialing the skip buttons. how is this an official npr cast? it's embarrassing, technically

Sean Ormiston I agree. This is NOT the 1st Hidden Brain episode that suffers from this. I love the podcast but as an audio editor, it's frustrating. These edits are totally avoidable with just a little QC work.
