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 is joined by Bruce Schneier to talk about current problems facing the TSA, gun control, and how data and security intersect.

Bruce is a brilliant cryptographer and security expert, who's written countless articles and academic papers and published 13 books, including Data and Goliath: The Hidden Battles to Collect Your Data and Control Your World.

Guy, Wynter, and Margaret are joined by special guests Ricky Carmona and Corin Tucker for our first ever live show! This week's topic, summer camp and campy camp movies. Pop culture trivia! Xanadu! Movie and music advice! All that and more on this special episode of Pop Rocket!!

NOTE #1: This is a live show, so forgive the audio issues. We tried to clean it up as best as we can, but we're not miracle workers.

NOTE #2: After we taped this episode, someone pointed out to us that Sleepaway Camp is a somewhat transphobic movie. We didn't know that when we taped, so bear
that in mind if you plan on checking it out.
