Using social science to understand opinions.

I’m Andy Luttrell. I’m a social psychologist, and I’m interested in people’s opinions–especially the ones they hold onto really tightly. The ones people can’t let go of. Why do we hold some views that define us and others that we’re happy to change?

This show is my opportunity to learn more from other social scientists and people in the business of understanding and shaping public opinion. I talk with leading experts and dive into the research on these topics to share these insights with a general audience.

In addition to my work in academia, I’ve always been interested in sharing social science with the public. I have a YouTube channel, blog, and online courses about social psychology. With this new podcast project, I’m excited to dive in more specifically to opinion science, which is the topic I’m especially passionate about.
