Richard Landers
, associate professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Minnesota, recently released a YouTube channel titled “The Great IO Get-together - The GIG.” The channel features an industrial-organizational (I-O) psychology variety show, hosted by Dr. Landers and Dr. Tara Behrend, covering an array of relevant topics in the field. Each show is recorded with a live audience on YouTube Live, and past shows are also available for viewing at any time. Each episode, a little under an hour, invites the I-O community to learn and discuss the most pressing issues in the area, featuring a combination of audience-interactive activities and live interviews with prominent I-O psychologists, with recent guests including Dr. Lillian Eby and Dr. Allison Gabriel. Viewers can also listen to the show’s audio in a podcast format via Stitcher, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, and Spotify. Alongside the channel, The GIG website features information on upcoming live shows and how to join the GIG’s online chat community. From professors to students to practitioners, any and all are welcome, so check it out!
