It's Innate! is a podcast created by, and intended for, developmental psychologists and everyday people with interests in understanding how infants and children acquire knowledge. Dr. Candace Lapan and Dr. Deon Benton host this podcast.
Some of the issues and topics that are discussed on this podcast include: Can infants really add and subtract from birth or shortly thereafter? Do infants and children really understand that unsupported objects fall or that objects that are hidden continue to exist? Is the understanding that two people can have different beliefs really present from early in development? And what's all this talk about Baby Genius? Does it actually work? We tackle these issues (and more) on this podcast.

In second segment, Candy and Deon discuss Kiley Hamlin's classic study on infants' developing sociomoral evaluations as well as a recent replication attempt of the original study. Candy and Deon also discuss whether the claim that infants possess a "innate moral core" (Hamlin, 2013) is supported by the data reported either in the original study or replication attempt.
