What Is Democratic Socialism? Guests: Chris Karpowitz, PhD, Professor of Political Science, Brigham Young University; Grant Madsen, PhD, Professor of History, Brigham Young University Using the word “socialism” in American politics is never simple, but politicians like New York Congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and former presidential candidate, Senator Bernie Sanders openly campaign as Democratic Socialists. What does using that label mean? How to Spot a Liar Guest: Norah Dunbar, PhD, Professor of Communication, Univeristy of California, Santa Barbara When someone’s lying to you, you know, right? They’re acting shifty. They’re not making eye contact. Well, the truth is you may as well flip a coin to decide if someone’s deceiving you, because humans are really not good at spotting a liar. Can lie-detecting techniques be taught? Fighting Fire with Fire Guest: Tony Cheng, PhD, Professor of Forest and Rangeland Stewardship, Director, Colorado Forest Restoration Institute, Colorado State University Large fires – mostly in the Western States – have already burned more than 1 million acres of land this fire season. One of the reasons wildfires are burning bigger and hotter than ever is that we’ve been so intent on putting them out–changing the landscape and making it more susceptible to fires. How Women’s Friendships Differ from Men’s Guest: Deborah Tannen, PhD, Professor of Linguistics, Georgetown University, Author, “You’re the Only One I Can Tell: Inside the Language of Women’s Friendships” If you have a close friend who knows your most intimate personal details, you’re probably a woman. If you’ve ever been cut off by a close friend with no explanation, you’re probably a woman, too. Friendships between women can be complicated, but they can also be as intense and rewarding as any relationship in a woman’s life. Parent Previews – Mission: Impossible – Fallout and Teen Titans Go!

The Psychology Of Dehumanization Guest: Emile Bruneau, PhD, Research Associate, Lecturer, Annenberg School for Communication, University of Pennsylvania, Lead Scientist, Beyond Conflict Innovation Lab Throughout history humans have justified atrocities by defining victims as subhuman, often quite openly. European American dealings with Indians, white Southerners justifying slavery, and Nazis massacring Jews. But how much do we really know about how dehumanizing happens? Can the process be changed?
