The Human Zoo


The Human Zoo is a radio programme about human behaviour presented by journalist Michael Blastland, featuring Nick Chater, Professor of Behavioural Science at Warwick Business School.

It is a place to learn about the one subject that never fails to fascinate – ourselves. Are people led by the head or by the heart? How rational are we? How do we perceive the world and what lies behind the quirks of human behaviour?

Michael and Nick present a curious blend of intriguing experiments to discover our biases and judgements, conversations, explorations and examples taken from what’s in the news to what we do in the kitchen – all driven by a large slice of curiosity.
