Ep 6: The Malleability of Memory with Elizabeth Loftus

Professor Elizabeth Loftus is a pioneering and legendary cognitive psychologist who first appeared on the forensic science episode of Adam Ruins Everything. Her ground-breaking work studies how memories can be changed and altered. She's specifically focused on the weaknesses of eyewitness testimony. What makes Elizabeth's work even more interesting is that she's ventured beyond academia to understand human memory, testifying and consulting in over 250 legal cases. Adam and Elizabeth discuss collective memory, repressed memory, and even some of Adam's own memories. Adam Conover is on Twitter @AdamConover.
