Clutch Performances & Flow States: Are heroes born or taught? w/Dr. Matt Johnson (Encore)

Read more

We're working on our studio, so this week's episode is an encore. 

Dr. Matt Johnson, a Certified Sport Psychology Consultant (and former Notre Dame quarterback), joins us to discuss a fundamental question about performance under pressure. Our thoughts:

  • Are some people just born to be gamers? To perform at a high level in the clutch?
  • Can regular people learn to handle pressure situations better?
  • Is visualization important to improving performance?
  • Do high performers think about everything at once? Or just ONE thing?
  • What role does being in a “flow state” play?

Dr. Johnson draws on his experience working with athletes and executives to offer observations about what makes high performers tick, and strategies to help the rest of us.

Our ideas start at about 9:00.

Our expert joins us starting at around 25:00.

25. Psychedelics for Addiction with Professor Matt Johnson

Read more

Tobacco and alcohol are the largest sources of preventable death in the world. Our current treatments are only 15% effective at best. However, psilocybin-assisted therapy has achieved an astonishing 80% success rate in clinical trials. Professor Matthew Johnson is paving the way for this new an innovative treatment to address one of the most damaging social burdens of modern society, drug addiction. It is important to note that Professor Johnson’s research is not looking at casual habitual smokers, but instead, long-term, treatment resistant tobacco users.

Matthew W. Johnson, Ph.D., Professor at Johns Hopkins, has worked with psychedelics since 2004. He published psychedelic safety guidelines in 2008, the first psychedelic treatment of tobacco addiction in 2014, and with colleagues published the largest study of psilocybin in cancer distress in 2016. His 2018 psilocybin review recommended Schedule IV upon medical approval. He is Principal Investigator on upcoming psilocybin studies treating opioid addiction and PTSD, and LSD research treating chronic pain.

Matt and the Johns Hopkins Psychedelic Research Unit are examining the long-term behavioural changes resulting from a single psilocybin session and cognitive behavioural therapy.

The benefits of being micro famous with Matt Johnson

Read more

In this week’s podcast I have an interview with the very lovely Matt Johnson, who is an agency founder, podcaster and author of the book called “Micro Famous”. We talk all about not needing loads and loads of followers in order to be successful, using a niche and understanding who your customer is.


  • Attention spans are getting shorter – having something in your ear like a podcast whilst you are doing something else works really well.
  • You don’t have to have big numbers on social media to be successful.
  • Micro famous is being famously influential to the right people.
  • You have to decide what you really want – is it about fame?
  • More content does not equal more sales.
  • The algorithms have put a barrier between content creators and customers so we have to focus on engaging content.
  • The three stages of influence – Get Seen, Get Noticed, Get Known.
  • The aim is to get linked to the problem you solve.
  • Become known for something but only to the people you want to serve – this is easier and faster.
  • Ways of finding your niche – Create a new one or speak to an existing one.
  • Find what people are right from you and create content that speaks to them.
  • If you don’t know how you have got somewhere, you won’t be able to go back and fix it.
  • You can’t count on authenticity to grow your business but you can still show up and be authentic.
  • Not all forms of visibility are congruent with your expertise.
  • Podcasts are brilliant if you sell ideas because your audience can listen and engage with you for a long time.
  • Podcasts are also really good if you prefer talking to writing.
  • Podcasting creates demand because you can take your audience on a journey – you are their leader.
  • Appearing on other podcasts helps to reach new people who are looking for solutions.
  • Reach out to other podcasters and pitch yourself.


Find a podcast you can pitch yourself on and just go for it! If you have never done it before, you may be surprised how much you enjoy it and the potential growth to your business.

A Neuroscientist and Marketer walk into a bar: Neuromarketing and the hidden ways marketing reshapes our brains with Matt Johnson and Prince Ghuman

Read more

Ever wonder why certain new ideas stick while others don’t? We often hear a lot about innovation when it comes to new ideas, but really that’s only part of the equation. Psychology, marketing, neuroscience - and yes - anthropology can help us make sense of why some new ideas stick while others fall flat.

On this episode Adam Gamwell talks with neuroscientist Dr. Matt Johnson and Professor of marketing Prince Ghuman about the fascinating role neuroscience plays in our evolving consumer lives. Matt and Prince have a new book out called Blindsight: the (Mostly) Hidden Ways Marketing Reshapes our Brains that explores the emerging field of neuromarketing.

This is a fascinating conversation that gets into the neuroscience, marketing, and psychology of why we consume, why certain kinds of advertisements work for different groups of people, and -something long time listeners of This Anthro Life know - the need to clearly communicate our work as human, Neuro, and social scientists to other disciplines and people in general. And speaking of that, we dig into one of Adam's favorite subjects of all time - Star Wars - to figure out why nostalgia marketing can be so powerful.

Cannabis, Condoms, and Psilocybin: Session 118 with Matt Johnson

Read more

You may recall that a few months back, I interviewed Dr. David Cox (@davidjcox_). In our discussion, we spent a fair amount of time talking about the literature on the use of psychedelics for the treatment of a variety of behavioral and mental health challenges.

I recently got the opportunity to extend this conversation with Dr. Matthew Johnson (@Drug_Researcher). Matt Johnson is a Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at John Hopkins University, and he's been a leading figure in this area of research for over 15 years. His expertise in this area is so well regarded that he's been sought out by media outlets such as (takes deep breath):

The New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Globe and Mail, Daily Mail, USA Today, Chicago Tribune, San Francisco Chronicle, Denver Post, Baltimore Sun, CNN, CBS News, NBC News, The Atlantic, Newsweek, Vanity Fair, Marie Claire, Vogue, Whole Living, The Washingtonian, Scientific American, Nature, Vice, Insider, Inverse, Healthline, Psychology Today

(pause to inhale...)

60 Minutes, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer Situation Room, Fox Business News’ Kennedy, the Dr. Oz Show, PBS’ Retro Report, Labyrint (television show in the Netherlands), Spectrum News NY1, the BBC World Service, NPR’s Morning Edition, NPR’s Kojo Nnamdi Show, New Zealand Radio, and Newstalk Radio Ireland... just to name a few.

Matt has also been featured in a special episode of The Tim Ferriss Show on this very topic. As such, I'm a little more than humbled to chat with him on Behavioral Observations!

In our chat, we did a quick overview of Delay Discounting, talked about decision making with condom usage, and the behavioral economics of cannabis. As an aside, we've done quite a few shows on Behavioral Economics. Here's a quick list of them if you want to get really up to speed:

Back to this show, Matt and I spent a large part of our chat discussing his groundbreaking work in the area of psychedelics. We really get into the weeds, as it were, of how these studies are done, and discuss everything from recruiting participants, the timing of these trips, how participants are supported through their experiences, bad trips, transformative experiences, hypothesized mechanisms of action, what these treatments will look like in five years, and much, much more. 

And before I forget, here are some links to additional readings that we referenced:

We close with a fun discussion of the concept of impulsivity. In Matt's view, as a psychological construct, the term isn't very useful, and we get into how he came to that conclusion. 

This episode is brought to you by:

  • HRIC Recruiting. Barb Voss has been placing BCBAs in permanent positions throughout the US for just about a decade, and has been in the business more generally for 30 years. Like Batman, she works alone, which means that when you work with HRIC, you work directly with Barb and get highly personalized service. So if you're about to graduate, you're looking for a change of pace, or you just want to know if the grass really is greener on the other side, head over to HRIColorado.com to schedule a confidential chat right away.
  • Behavior University. Their mission is to provide university quality professional development for the busy Behavior Analyst. Learn about their CEU offerings and podcast-specific discounts over at behavioruniversity.com/observations.
  • Lastly, I’d like to mention something I don’t bring up all that frequently. I have a membership program for the podcast; think of it as a DIY Patreon… It’s been running for a few years now, and it costs the princely sum of $9/month. Members get access to a private FB group in which they are able to get nearly instantaneous access to the videos of these podcast interviews. The best part is that members get the raw feed. That means no ads, and none of the introductory comments. You just get right to the interview.

    Another cool thing we do is hold Zoom Hangouts with former guests. We do this about 6 times a year, and it works like this: we schedule a Zoom call, a former guest comes on and joins us, and the members have the opportunity to ask them questions directly.

Ep. 7 - Consumer neuroscience during the coronavirus w/ Matt Johnson

Read more

This is the seventh episode of Market with Me Quikly -- a podcast to inform, educate and assist B2c marketers in doing their jobs just a little bit better. If you’ve listened to previous episodes — you know that we’ve been talking all things marketing in the age of coronavirus — with a heavy focus on consumer psychology. While this is important for marketers to understand, there is something even deeper that’s going on in a consumer's brain. And that’s neuroscience.

We wanted to learn more about some key elements of consumer neuroscience to unpack even further how consumers are responding to a global pandemic. So we called Matt Johnson. He's a researcher, writer, and speaker  — working at the intersections of neuroscience, technology, and business. He received his Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology from Princeton University, where his dissertation focused on the neuroscience of language and communication. His research focus is now on applying this perspective to better understanding consumer experience and decision making. He is the founder of the consumer behavior blog PopNeuro, and the author of Blindsight: The (Mostly) Hidden Ways Marketing Reshapes our Brains
