Emotions
Invisibilia
A thief knocks down your door and you are flooded with fear. Your baby smiles up at you and you are filled with love. It feels like this is how emotions work: something happens, and we instinctively respond. How could it be any other way? Well, the latest research in psychology and neuroscience shows that's not in fact how emotions work. We offer you a truly mind-blowing alternative explanation for how an emotion gets made. And we do it through a bizarre lawsuit, in which a child dies in a car accident, and the child's parents get sued by the man driving the other car.

Still Buffering is three sisters, two of which are in their 30s and one which is in her teens. They discuss how things have changed from when the older ones were teens to how it is these days. I can't think of one particular ep, but any are probably good starting points!
