In the opening episode of Series 2, Dr Pete and Hugh talk to chartered sport and exercise psychologist and lecturer, Dr Darren Britton, and registered sport and exercise psychologist, Matt Cunliffe to find out how to think straight about psychology.

In a world full of Instagram experts and 'media psychologists', we explore how we might separate the pseudoscience from the evidence-based practice, and talk about how to tackle the problem of the relentless positivity that seems to invade our social media feeds.
