A political science professor helps us check in on the latest Russian attacks on Ukraine and the western support in the ongoing war. Then, an author shares his new book on the science of belief, opinion and persuasion.

Featured in this Show

  • Ukraine latest, and the state of Western support

    We discuss some of the latest devastating Russian attacks on Ukraine, and how effective US and other Western support is at this point in the ongoing war.

  • The way to actually change someone's mind

    When we’re talking to someone we disagree with, we often try to argue using facts and logic. We talk to a science journalist who says that’s often not a recipe for success, and talks about what we can learn from times when minds were successfully changed.
