Good evening, listeners!

He makes the point that moral psychology can be used to describe and even defuse the tensions between those clashing ideas.Then, TAI staff writer Jason Willick returns to the program to talk about Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s recent comments about Donald Trump, the backlash against them, and what this whole episode means for the illusion of the non-partisan justice.Be sure to subscribe to the podcast on iTunes where you can also leave a review, and follow Jonathan Haidt @JonHaidt, Jason Willick @jawillick, and Richard Aldous @RJAldous on Twitter.
