Richard Wiseman's On Your Mind
Why are some people so happy? How can you tell when politicians are lying? Why do long lists of questions hold our attention? Welcome to Richard Wiseman’s On Your Mind, the podcast that aims to answer a thousand questions about the human mind. A magician, academic and author, Richard holds the UK’s only professorship in the public understanding of psychology. Together with science journalist Marnie Chesterton, they take on all manner of questions from the public, celebrities and each other, on everything from ghosts to laughter, dreaming to luck, sleep to memory.

People don't just listen to our podcast, they LOVE it.
The best podcast!
I love Richard Wiseman’s On Your Mind. Listening to Richard and Marnie talking in the Are you a Blurter? episode was a bit like a conversation between my brain and my mind, with one difference - it was funny! Keep up the good work and Happy Christmas
Practical and fun
By FAR the most interesting and enjoyable informative podcast I listen to. I never left a review because I’ve been listening for so long that I didn’t realize this wasn’t already a huge podcast given how good it is!
Wonderful chemistry between two people talking about psychology
One of my favourite half hours of the week.
