This week’s episode features a conversation about how fans self-identify with Ed Hirt, a professor of psychological and brain sciences at Indiana University. Hirt has studied, among other things, how wins and losses affect fans’ perception of their own abilities and why the attachment to a sports team can create a more powerful group experience than almost any other movement or event.
