Ep 67. Reviewing the Behavioural Science of 2021!

This episode of Questioning Behaviour has Sarah and Merle review the year 2021, from the behavioural science perspective. Issues with the vaccine roll-out, (panic) working from home, preparing for more lockdowns and a world with COVID are discussed. However, there are positive notes too, with amazing events and books having been launched in 2021, and much more amazing stuff to come out in 2021.

2021 is also the year Merle finished her PhD and wrote a book about doing the PhD, so it can't have been all bad!

We wish you all a great 2022, in which you'll have the time and peace of mind to reflect on the developments in both behavioural science and your own life in 2021 and grow from there.
