Today’s episode is all about the career paths not taken, the decisions you make that steer you from one path to another – and how it all seems to work out.
I’m honored to have my mentor, social psychologist Dr. Saul Kassin, join me on the podcast. Dr. Kassin is a Massachusetts Professor Emeritus at Williams College, a distinguished professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and the pioneer of the scientific study of false confessions. He’s also the reason I became a psychologist.
Dr. Kassin and I discuss:
* The seemingly accidental decisions that take us one direction or another
* The importance of a supportive mentor
* The value of a non-linear career path
We also discuss his bombshell book, “Duped: Why Innocent People Confess and Why We Believe their Confessions” and his upcoming talks in Williamstown, Massachusetts.
