Download Episode.

To celebrate one year of podcasting (!!), we are rebroadcasting a couple of classic episodes that we really like, in case you hadn’t heard them yet (and a little summer break for us). We’ll be back with new episodes in two weeks.

You can see Casey’s website and her social media buttons on kcknits.com.

In this week’s episode, Casey talks with psychologist Dr. Art Markman about about your brain on knitting – process vs. project knitters, multi-task knitting, and other topics.

Dr. Art Markman, Ph.D., is Annabel Irion Worsham Centennial Professor of Psychology and Marketing at the University of Texas at Austin. He got his Sc.B. in Cognitive Science from Brown and his Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of Illinois. He has published over 150 scholarly works on topics in higher-level thinking including the effects of motivation on learning and performance, analogical reasoning, categorization, decision making, and creativity. Art serves as the director of the program in the Human Dimensions of Organizations at the University of Texas.

His NPR show and podcast is Two Guys on Your Head
His latest book we mention is called Brain Briefs: Answers to the Most (and Least) Pressing Questions About Your Brain
