Episode 26 - How to Talk to Non-Behavior Analysts Without Really Trying

It's our second ETHICS episode so gather around the ol' podcast table to learn how to disseminate behavior analysis to anyone and everyone without getting exiled from your place of employment.  Here are some things you shouldn't do: 1) flip tables in a fit of rage when anyone proposes hippotherapy 2) break-up with your boyfriend over his insistence that a "mind-file" is a real thing and 3) use data sheets as deadly weapons.  Oh, you wanted us to tell you what you should do? Guess you'll have to listen to the show.  C'mon...there's discussion about a decision tree coming up!
