MENTAL Part 1: The New You
Play • 23 min

Our brains are fickle things.

This week we bring you four stories that explore our stigmas, fears, and fantasies as we take a look under the hood and ask: why do we do what we do? 

This week is all about the new you – from behaviour shaping algorithms to 'smart' pills, our journalists investigate how the ‘you’ in your head might not always be making the decisions. Reporting by Nell Gereats, Xiyu Zha, Daniel Pfaender, and Peter Quattrocelli. 

This episode is made in collaboration with the Science Gallery Melbourne. Their new exhibition MENTAL: Head Inside is a welcoming place to confront societal bias and stereotypes around mental health. It runs from 20.01.22 -18.06.22
