Kirk Lynn

On this edition of The Write Up we chat with novelist, playwright, and professor Kirk Lynn about the craft of writing, the adventure of theater, and the deep desire to abandon society and escape into the wild. We also discuss his debut novel Rules for Werewolves.

Lynn began writing prose in college, but found the companionship of his desk and typewriter not so satisfying. So he took a chance on theatre. It was on the stage that he found his passion for the human voice. Along with six friends, Lynn founded Austin’s Rude Mechanicals , now called the Rude Mechs. For nearly twenty years this growing company has produced some of the more daring and critically acclaimed plays to come out of Texas, a number of them penned by Lynn, including Stop Hitting Yourself and Lipstick Traces: A Secret History of the 20th Century.

In this edition of Two Guys on Your Head, Dr. Art Markman and Dr. Bob Duke talk about the psychology of accountability.

We might think that in order to keep order in our households, work places, or classrooms, that its important to hold people accountable for their negative behavior. However, what that can lead to is a playing field that allows for either nothing to happen, or punishment. It is more important to focus on the behaviors we want to see continue, as opposed to giving energy to avoiding the negative.

Still a little confused? Listen back as Art and Bob explain the details.

It’s that time of the year when we resolve to drink less, exercise more, save money, etc.

It may feel really good to intend to do “better” in the new year, but as Dr. Art Markman and Dr. Bob Duke explain in this edition of Two Guys on Your Head, real change takes planning and hard work.

During the holidays we might have things to buy, people to see, and places to go; specific goals that shape our daily lives, not much different than other times of the year.  But, we may also find that we have time off work, time to sit back and do nothing, time to get lost. 

In this edition of Two Guys on Your Head, Dr. Art Markman and Dr. Bob Duke talk about the psychological value of "getting lost", and the beauty of discovery.

Have you ever wondered how our brains make sense of objects? How we know a book is a book and a glass of milk is a glass of milk, as opposed to the particles that make up those things?

Scientists have wondered a lot about this, especially a group of German psychologists from the Berlin School of Experimental Psychology. They we're interested in how we understand and make meaningful perceptions out of a very chaotic world. Out of their work we get gestalt principles.
