About David McRaney

I love making the You Are Not So Smart podcast. It's a show about psychology that celebrates science and self delusion. In each episode, I interview a scientist (or several) and explore what we've learned so far about reasoning, biases, judgments, and decision-making.

You can check out all of the episodes here: Link to shows

I would love your help in making it bigger and better, and in return you get the show ad-free. My fantasy and dream is to hire a staff to make the podcast as deep and rich as my favorite storytelling podcasts like Radiolab, This American Life, and 99% Invisible. If enough Patrons add their support, we can make that happen, and one day put out episodes weekly instead of once every-two-weeks.

Video! At this level I would start creating weekly videos for Patrons and monthly videos for everyone.
