Podcast Episode 075: Bringing Behaviour to a Bigger World with Ryan O'Donnell

Joining me on the show for this episode is science communicator and content creator Ryan O’Donnell, a.k.a RyanO. Ryan wakes up daily trying to fill the gap between the amazing science of behavior and the billions of people that it could impact for the better. He does this by creating content for behavioral science enthusiasts via The Daily BA on YouTube, The Controversial Exchange and CHATTcon while preparing for his next big venture. (He gives us a sneak peak into that during our podcast chat.)

Ryan started his career as a Behaviour Analyst but his interests have grown to include everything from entrepreneurship, artificial intelligence, reinforcement learning, social media, podcasting, and vlogging. These interests and skills have allowed him to work with a lot of great people, travel and share the science of behaviour with the world at large and that’s what we are talking about today - how to bring the science of behaviour to a bigger world.

In this episode I ask Ryan:

  • What is Behaviour Analysis and why does it matter?

  • What attracted you to the field?

  • How did you move from straight BA work to film making and digital content creation? And why?

  • What it the bigger purpose for you of bringing the science of behaviour to YouTube and the digital world?

  • How did you develop your video and content creation skills?

  • How do you think our communities can benefit from bringing behaviour to a bigger world?

If you have a passion for science communication, helping others to learn, grow and flourish or the innovative use of digital content and story telling, don’t miss this fantastic conversation.
