Ep 48. What Philosophy can teach Behavioural Economics (ft. Erik Angner)

In this episode, Sarah and Merle speak with Erik Angner (Professor of Practical Philosophy at Stockholm University). We talk about Erik's experience of interdisciplinary work, what philosophers can teach economists, the importance of asserting implicit assumptions, and the over-confidence of economists! Erik totally blows our minds this episode with his knowledge, insight, and most importantly, sense of humour ;)

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.

Ep 43. Breaking the Bank (ft. Josh Detar)

In this episode of Questioning Behaviour Sarah Bowen and Merle van den Akker speak with Tyfone's Josh DeTar. We talk about the traditional banking system and its competitors in community and neo-banking. Additionally, we wonder what it's going to take to "compensate" people for their time during the pandemic. Are we all going to end up in the roaring twenties, taking trips to Cabo? Or will a KitKat do?

Josh DeTar's role with Tyfone is to deliver exceptional experiences to both current and prospective credit union clients in the Northwest. He has been with Tyfone for a little over a year but has been client-facing in the software as a service for the financial services industry for years. His expertise lies in providing uncommonly elevated levels of genuine customer service and care through building lasting relationships with everyone he comes into contact with. Josh lives in Portland, Or.
