Kitsap Skeptics Meetup #2

August 18th at the Global Bean, Silverdale, 7-9pm

The topic for this meeting will be cognitive dissonance. Two podcasts have been chosen for pre-meetup listening. They are episodes 8 & 63 of "Psychology in Everyday Life: The Psych Files" - which you can search on Itunes or use this link

These podcasts explain the concept of cognitive dissonance and include discussion of several very interesting studies on the subject, including "the Monty Hall Problem." Both are about 20 minutes long and should inspire some interesting discussion on the 18th. See you there!
