#68 - The Stanford Prison Experiment and Jony Ive on Steve Jobs
Today's episode from 8th October 2021. First up this Friday: Do we need to unlearn everything we know about pop psychology? We hear about a new exposé which shows the science concluded from one of the most famous psychology experiments was fake. And then later, it's been 10 years since Steve Jobs passed away. His friend and Apple’s former chief design officer Sir Johnny Ive has rarely spoken about him in public. We've got a wonderful tribute from him, which gives us an insight into how his mind worked. Many of the mainstays of psychological science don’t actually reveal much about the human mind. Philip Zimbardo’s Stanford Prison Experiment is just one of the many examples of this. Looking at the fake science surrounding the notorious trial, Brian Resnick for Vox explores how the most famous psychological studies are often wrong, fraudulent, or outdated. Textbooks need to catch up. Remembering the Apple co-founder and design genius. On the 10th anniversary of Steve Jobs’s death, Sir Jony Ive reflects in the Wall Street Journal on their collaborations and friendship: “My understanding of him refuses to remain cozy or still.” Wake up with Curio is a different kind of morning show that gives you the context behind the news and gets you motivated for the day ahead, every Monday - Friday.
