Psych2go: A small US company started making psychology videos which I best term as ‘applied psychology.’ Their content is useful in day to day living. I would like to highlight the cognitive load (mental demands) of this channel. I think it is just perfect – visually speaking, it is light. The animation compounds the content and does not distract. The spoken content is raw meat. Don’t judge the slight clickbaity titles. Creators gotta do what they gotta do to build an audience. Psych2go has valuable content for many people interested in psychology. Go ahead, check them out!
