What can and can’t science tell you about how to live your life? Can you make truly informed, independent-minded decisions about your diet, your mental health, or your child’s education without becoming an expert yourself?
In this epic SuperSalon, Interintellect host Gena Gorlin, academic and practicing psychologist, will sit down with Emily Oster – economics professor at Brown University and renowned author of two (soon to be three!) game-changing bestsellers on data-driven parenting. Together we will explore the role of data in driving decisions about everything from breastfeeding to breaking up with a therapist.
Without shying from the controversies or the complexities, we’ll grapple with the question of how to think critically and responsibly about the claims of scientific experts, and where your own judgment and values have to come into it.
