The Bystander Effect is a social phenomenon that causes people to be less likely to take action if there are more people around because everyone thinks someone else will take care of it, a psychological tendency in our society called diffusion of responsibility.

Unpopular Culture is a podcast where a psychotherapist and a team of dedicated professionals, dive into the broken underbelly of today's society— discovering the weird and the weirdly common.
