Ep 50. Start at the End (ft. Matt Wallaert)

In this episode of the QB pod, Sarah and Merle meet Matt Wallaert (Head of Behavioural Science @ frog). We discuss why behavioural scientists should pay more attention to science fiction, how 10-weeks can be enough to complete the behavioural science process, and why the democratisation of behavioural science is essential. Go forth and prosper listener, and remember... behaviour as the outcome, science as the process.

Ep 49. Behavioural Marketing (ft. Steve Brunt)

In this episode of the QB pod, Sarah and Merle meet Steve Brunt (Planning Director, The Behaviours Agency)! We discuss how sometimes "bringing awareness" is just not enough, what behavioural science brings to the craft of marketing, the secret art of creating resonance and emotion, and so much more! 

The Behaviours Agency is a UK-based behavioural science marketing and creative agency that utilises the evidence around the power of default choices, our brain's tendency to compare and make decisions relative to other options, and the necessary conditions for behaviour to take place (sufficient motivation, sufficient means, and a trigger).

Ep 47. Alternative Academia (ft. Chris Cornthwaite)

On this episode of the QB pod, Sarah and Merle invite Chris Cornthwaite (Roostervane) about how to transition from the PhD to a career outside of academia ("AltAc"), and why the grass may in fact be greener on the other side. We talk about the transferability of skills, the social capital of a PhD, and the pitfalls of academia. You'll enjoy this one if you are thinking about pursuing a PhD and/or if you enjoy a bit of PhD trash talk.
