Are you a psychology student, struggling to concentrate on reading papers? A psychology lecturer, trying to mix up your teaching a bit? A teacher or parent who wants to know what's going on in child development research? or maybe a neurodivergent adult reflecting on their youth? If so, welcome to our podcast! We hope these bite-sized, guided tours of recent research papers - via an informal chat with the author - will interest and inform you. The podcast is currently hosted by Louisa (Lou) Thomas, a postdoctoral research assistant in the Centre for Autism at the University of Reading. Each episode is a conversation between Lou, and a fellow academic. Together we discuss one of their recent (or classic) papers relating to child and adolescent development and learning. We don’t have a recording booth or fancy equipment, but this wee bit of brain food should be a nice nutritious snack for a curious mind.
