DR. YOUNG UNPACKS is a playful, high energy, informative talk show that dives deep into the psychology of media, politics, and popular culture, featuring award-winning Professor Danna Young - Associate Professor at the University of Delaware (and performer with ComedySportz Philadelphia for over 18 years).

Each week, Dr. Young unpacks a new topic, and features an expert guest from academia and media talking about their own research on media and politics.

“We live in complicated times. People want to understand what’s going on around them, without getting overwhelmed or freaked out. I’m an optimist. I believe that once you unpack a topic and help people understand how things work and why, they can start making the world better.”
— Dr. Young
