You Are Not So Smart

FRI // AUG 13 // 07:00PM

You Are Not So Smart is a celebration of self delusion, a psychology podcast that dives deep into the normal, but often strange ways we all delude ourselves.

In this live taping, science journalist and host David McRaney will sit down with psychologist Dr. Tessa West, a leading expert on interpersonal interaction and communication, to discuss how to make work suck less as we return to our offices and figure out how to balance working remotely with working in-person after a year of re-imagining what work even means. They will also talk about Tessa’s new book, Jerks at Work, an exploration of all the research into how and why gaslighters, bulldozers, neglectors, micromanagers and more do their thing in our workplaces and how to use what we know from decades of psychological research to counteract their Machiavellian machinations.
