I was interviewed by Mathew LaPlante for the UnDisciplined Show on Utah Public Radio, about our recent meta-analysis.
Each week, UnDisciplined introduces its audience to two scientists, working in different fields – and then introduces them to each other, to discuss points of overlap – making for a lively and unpredictable discussion!
I was paired up with Jay Jennings, a political scientist at the Annette Strauss Institute for Civic Life and the Center for Media Engagement at the University of Texas, whose recent research shows a striking correlation between declines in local newsroom staffing and political competition in mayoral races.
Jay and I talked about the factors that influence our moods, how the institutions around us inspire us to take action, and how the things we put into our bodies may impact the way we see the world.
