On the radio

Our very own Dr Ashley Weinberg will be talking about the psychology of politicians on WHYY radio this Monday 5th November at 7pm GMT (3pm EST).  WHYY radio broadcasts across Greater Philadelphia, U.S but you can listen from anywhere online here.  The show, In the Public Sphere, will discuss what type of person runs for public office in contemporary times.

***Update*** You can now listen to an MP3 of the show.
