Show Notes

Conducting research today often requires extensive ethical planning and approval by an institutional review board (IRB) to ensure that no participants can be physically or psychologically harmed during a study, the Stanford Prison Experiment occurred three years before the IRB system was in place. The goal of the Stanford Prison Experiment was to analyze the relationships between prison guards and prisoners. This experiment is notorious for its questionable ethics, lack of concrete data, and the deceit used throughout. In this episode, Skye discusses the experiment from beginning to early termination.
