Episode 43 of the Brain Science Podcast is an interview with Dr. Robert Burton, author of "On Being Certain: Believing that You are Right Even When You're Not." This episode is part 2 of our discussion of what Dr. Burton calls "the feeling of knowing." We discuss the evidence that this "feeling of knowing" is generated in our unconscious. Not only is its generation inaccessible, but despite its power this feeling is not necessarily reliable. The focus of Dr. Burton's interview is a look at the implications of this important discovery.
