Biz and Theresa revisit their resolutions from last year and are reminded that resolutions are bullshit! Seriously. Let's resolve to talk about cake or anything else next year. Plus, Biz recovers from the holidays, Theresa reminds us of her favorite gift, and we talk to Professor of Cognitive Sciences Barbara Sarnecka about her fascinating recent study on how moral judgments affect the way we perceive risk.
