SUPPORT OUR SPONSOR:  http://www.naturebox.com Dr. Michael Shermer is the founding publisher of Skeptic Magazine and author of several books, including "The Moral Arc: How Science and Reason Lead Humanity Toward Truth, Justice and Freedom," and "Why People Believe Weird Things: Pseudoscience, Superstition and Other Confusions of our Time."   In this conversation with Seth Andrews, Dr. Shermer addresses some of the recent (and alarming) statements made by educated and (it would seem) very intelligent public figures, and we explore the relationship between the intelligent and the irrational brain.
