Episode 8: Interview with Chris Mooney on The Republican Brain; SodaStream boycott; war propaganda

Sink your teeth into our discussion of the hypocrisy and absurdity behind the horse meat debacle; the real scandal behind SodaStream’s SuperBowl ad; the 10th anniversary of a key propaganda coup for the selling of the U.S. invasion of Iraq; and the utterly sad Gun Appreciation Day events held this past January. Then our interview guest — author and journalist Chris Mooney — talks with us about political psychology and his book The Republic Brain: The Science of Why They Deny Science — and Reality.
