Episode 72 - Research Grab Bag VI: Beyond Thunderdome

After the world has moved on, bands of wild behavior analysts roam the deserts, searching for reinforcement wherever it can be found. Yet there are still tales. Tales of the last research journal library, home of the mythical grab bag wherein the full repository of behavior analytic knowledge still remains. Many pseudoscientists scoff at these tales, but the true BCBAs know that this research grab bag exists. Lost beyond the horizon, beyond the burned sea, beyond…THUNDERDOME!
