  1. Hi Jamie,
    I really enjoyed hearing Kelly-Anne at the discussion table with you on this episode..
    I wasn’t able to listen to the end tonight, due to another commitment But I gain something from every program you do. The title on this one (Are Humans Rational) was provocative…My understanding, bottom-line, is that decision-making also involves the heart and irrational emotion plus the whole body for that matter. So, the process is not confined to strictly cognitive function But god bless brain researchers. Something can always be learned.
