Dr. Robb Willer of the Polarization and Social Change Lab at Stanford University has been working on understanding the moral underpinnings of this accelerating anger—and his research shows that we’re speaking different languages. Our conversation makes Robb, a movie buff, think of zombie apocalypse movies, and wonder if we’re acting just a little too much like “foot soldiers in the army of the undead” in the political conversations we have. We hope you’ll join Dr. Willer for highly-relatable, user-friendly and scientifically-grounded advice on how we might improve the quality of our political conversations—and possibly ditch a few zombies along the way.
