Michael Stevens, the creator and host of the popular YouTube channel Vsauce, also created and hosts this web series that focuses on "the most mind-blowing, significant, and least-understood aspects of the human psyche". They explain all sorts of psychological phenomena using actual experiments on participants, and quoting many famous articles done in the field.

I think this is a very relevant show for our community that is obsessed with how the mind perceives the world through its senses, and when that perception falls victim to biases and psychological illusions. Is has many great examples of how our mind can be easily tricked or be convinced that what is false or imagined is actually real.

The series is usually not available unless you pay to subscribe to YouTube premium, but right now it can be freely watched until the end of the year. There are currently three seasons, here is the first one:
