Richard Wiseman - Doing the “opposite” and embracing change

A Cuppa Happy

16-09-2022 • 48 mins

Professor, writer, illusionist and public speaker Richard Wiseman, is one of the key figures in Britain promoting experimental psychology. From publishing successful books on luck, deception, self-development, illusion and sleep, to finding creative ways for audiences to interact with the discipline, such as no-performer shows and immersive theatre experiences, Richard’s work is both innovative and fascinating. In this casual chat with Joss, the two discuss how to tackle nerves before public performances, being open to change, why we should do the opposite of what we initially aim to do, and being grateful for the “now”. Richard’s latest book Psychology: Why It Matters is out now. *** A massive thank you to our wonderful sponsors!
