Remember that thing you said you weren’t going to forget? Paula doesn’t. Which is why we have cognitive psychologist Dr. Alan Castel on hand to help us jog our memories. Which, it turns out, might involve actual jogging. And speaking of things that are going once... going twice... in this week’s Career Corner, Auction Specialist Zack Krone helps us find out if Paula has a future as an auctioneer. Also, if Paula has no future at all, at least we’ve now discovered what we’ll be listening to at her funeral.

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.
