So far I'm really liking CC:Psychology. I think Hank and the crew are doing a really good job presenting it. I also like that he is repeatedly mentioning things that were once considered fact that are now known to be pseudoscience, like several of studies brought up in the last episode. It's important to understand that our understanding of the world has to evolve over time. The scientific method (make a conjecture, test the conjecture, make a conclusion about it's veracity, tell other people) is a gradual process, and psychology and the human brain are so complicated that our understanding of them has been marred by, what were at the time, widely believed falsehoods. I, for example, did not know that the whole 'right brain-left brain' thing they told us in middle school was bogus until the episode.
Just putting it out there, YaleOpen, online has a great psychology course, with lectures and all. I am a high school student taking it and I find it suuuuper interesting. Btw it's free, you just need internet connection and you're all set
