This is a podcast about understanding other people and understanding ourselves, hosted by me, Zachary Elwood. I interview people from a wide variety of fields, from jury consultants to interrogation experts to forensic linguistic analysts to relationship researchers to door-to-door salesmen to restaurant managers.
I’ve done many interviews about political issues, focused on the psychology of political polarization. I see extreme polarization as the biggest problem facing modern societies, and I think to avoid worst-case scenarios we need more people understanding the psychological reasons behind our divides. See all my politics-related episodes.
My main claim to fame is my poker tells work. I’ve also done some research and writing on political and communication topics. I’m on Twitter. I make no money on this podcast.
