#3.15: The Milgram Shock Experiments
Show Notes

In this week's episode, Sydnee covers the truly shocking story of the The Milgram Shock Experiments, where (allegedly) 65% of participants did as they were told and administered dangerous electrical shocks to a complete stranger. BUT there's more to this story - research bias, unethical practices, and unpublished experiments tell a different story than the one we've all been told.
