There’s a very special guest on this week’s episode of Sassy Psychos–one of Liz and Sharon’s dearest friends Y, felicitously nicknamed Virgin Mary. This episode is all about sex and sexuality. You’ll hear about small tips and tricks to make yourself more (or less) attractive to others, and also learn about Alfred Kinsey, the father of Sexology. Hope you enjoy this episode, and don’t forget to subscribe!
In this Valentine’s Day themed episode–recorded back in February–Sharon and Liz talk about LOVE.

On episode 4, Sharon and Liz diverge from their usual propensity to pick dark, depressing topics. This week, it’s all about marshmallows and twins! Sharon examines how kids who can delay gratification by waiting to eat more marshmallows grow up to be successful, competent adults. Liz, inspired by the famous mix-up of identical twins in Colombia, dive deep into the emergence and significance of twin studies.
As we talked about some child psychology in the latest podcast episode, it had me thinking about today’s world of helicopter parents. Totally akin to Ainsworth’s idea of Insecure Ambivalent/Resistant attachment style, children with helicopter mothers would most likely display this type of attachment. As a young adult (am I still considered that?? lol…), my friends are becoming new parents and I get to watch social media explode with pictures and videos of their babies. I get to see them clamor over every little achievement and I get to see them become overly distressed from separation. Ever so hopeful, I pray that this is a symptom of new parenthood and will quickly relax into sensitive yet independent relationships so their children can grow up to become securely attached adults. I recently read an article from the Washington Post that reminded me of what we discussed:
Interestingly, I’ve seen many people like this growing up and finally had that “ah-ha” moment after learning about attachment styles. Any insights from our viewers/listeners out there??
Hi everyone! In episode 3, Sharon and Liz tackle a big topic: psychology of kids. It’s a common knowledge that who we are is largely determined by how we were raised. As Sharon and Liz chat about Ainsworth’s Attachment Theory and Bandura’s Bobo Doll experiment, try to figure out what your attachment style is and why you should always be careful of how you speak in front of your kids. And of course, remember to subscribe for more weekly psych talk!
In episode 2, Sharon and Liz discuss two classic psych experiments: Pavlov’s classical conditioning and Little Albert Experiment. I mean, can’t call yourself a psych nerd before talking about Pavlov’s dogs, right? Also, if you want to find out about what happened to poor Little Albert after his traumatic emotional conditioning experiment, be sure to tune in. Also, make sure you subscribe to get new episodes every week!
Welcome to Sassy Psychos! In this inaugural episode, Sharon and Liz chat about the most notorious psychology studies of all time: the murder of Kitty Genovese and the Stanford prison experiment. Why do people ignore others in need, and how do you turn average Joes into abusive psychos? Tune in to learn more about some of the most disturbing sides of human mind. And be sure to subscribe to get your weekly dose of psychology!
We’re so excited for the upcoming release of our trailer. We’ve been live streaming for the last month but we are happy to announce our podcast is under way so you can listen to us in the car, at work, when you’re bored at your family friend’s party, or when you’re constipated on the toilet! That way, you won’t have to use up all your data streaming our past broadcasts on Twitch when you don’t have WiFi nearby (true story).
We have a lot of social media outlets and wanted to take some time to explain the reasoning behind each:
This website is for our blogs on topics discussed and/or application to real life, special content, random musings, etc. Please visit the website occasionally to see what’s up and get access to exclusive content / possible merchandise (WHAT! We’ll see…).
Twitch is for live streaming! Please join us, we typically live stream on Sundays. This is where we record for the podcast, interact with our viewers, and munch on some yummy snacks! We hang out during our break in the middle of our recording, where we answer questions, digress, and act a little LESS formal compared to when we’re recording and presenting our experiments. Watch us! It’ll be fun.
Twitter is for being alerted and up to date when we’re actually going to live stream. We’re not always consistent on the time so follow our twitter account to get info on when we’ll be streaming. We’ll also do some shoutouts, so ask us if you’d like to get a tweet!
Facebook is for relevant content. This is where we post after our live stream about the experiments we talked about. We’ll post videos, articles, pictures, and funny memes. This is where you can start a fun, interesting discussion and have others join in! You can also give us feedback and input on our livestream/podcast , we’ll do our best to make every episode more fun and engaging than the previous episode — we’re always looking to improve!
That’s it for now — hope you enjoy!
Check us out! We’ll be releasing new podcasts every Friday.
