WHY WOULD YOU OVERWRITE 50-YEAR-OLD RESEARCH FINDINGS? The Safety Doc Podcast #3 challenges “The Atlantic’s” revisionist interpretation of the famous Milgram Electric-Shock Studies of the 1960s that showed that people will obey even the most abhorrent of orders.

Why is time-stamping important, well, it’s that “Forgetting Curve”.
