As momentous as the Stanford Prison Experiment was, Philip Zimbardo has had a much greater impact on my life.
Philip Zimbardo was the man who got me started in psychology. He was the author of the very first Psychology text book I picked up in PSY101, Psychology and Life, and hooked my interest enough to keep me studying and studying and studying.....
So, it was interesting to see him here recently and in interview on a local chat show, Enough Rope, with Andrew Denton. I've been waiting for the transcript and video to come online and now it's available here for those interested.
Slight disclaimer: it's quite short and nowhere near as in-depth as I'd hoped but I guess it's made for a more general audience.
