The Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas: Suspect Confessions & Big Boys Don't Cry

A comical and clever double bill featuring Suspect Confessions, and Big Boys Don’t Cry Hosted by Susan Morrison.

Suspect Confessions

Have you ever admitted to something you didn’t do? What would it take to own up to breaking the law? It’s surprisingly common for innocent people to confess to crimes they haven’t committed. Dr Faye Skelton explores the psychology of false confessions.

Big Boys Don’t Cry

Toxic masculinity is blamed for everything from the #MeToo movement to rates of male suicide. Dr Fiona McQueen wants to know whether men becoming more emotional can undo the nasty sides of manliness. Could being more open about their emotions help men transition from ‘boys don’t cry’ to ‘it’s good to talk’?
