Can psychology help us avoid procrastinating and get on with the important things we know we should be doing? Our presenter Christian Jarrett hears about what causes procrastination, how to stop it, and whether it has any upsides. Also, we put the psychologists on the spot and ask whether they’ve managed to cure their own procrastination.

Our guests are the world experts in the psychology of procrastination Professor Tim Pychyl at Carleton University and Dr Fuschia Sirois at the University of Sheffield.

  1. Greetings from South America! I really liked the content of the episode, the explanations the guests gave and I really like the host’s energy. You seem to really enjoy yourself and I like it. Like another listener said, your background music is a bit distracting and I think if you lowered the volume so it’s almost not percievable, that would be for the best. Aside from that, great episode and will listen to more!
