Episode 139: PLACEBO

Episode 139: PLACEBO

Why do foreign doctor’s offices seem sketchy sometimes? Why does medicine from home work better? Why are colors brighter when you travel? This has more to do with your brain than reality.  Science writer Erik Vance (Book: Suggestible You) joins us to examine the science behind your brain and its perceptions.
