Our hosts, Doug Pagitt and Robb Ryerse, take a deep dive into politics every Tuesday. On today’s show they are joined by Professor Peter Ditto to talk about the allure of conspiracy theories in politics. Ditto specializes in social psychology, political and moral reasoning, and “hot cognition” - the interface between passion and reason.
