How corrupt is academic psychology?

In today's episode Tomasz Witkowski joins me to discuss why the results of almost half of all psychological studies are false or misleading, why 7% of academics in the field admit to fabricating data, why psychology journals are unwilling to publish negative study results and the effect this has on subsequent research, why the increase in mental health professionals results in worsening mental health statistics, and ultimately why the field of psychological research is merely a pale imitation of real science.
