Chris Mooney, Conservative Brain & Queen of the Sun, Plight of Bees

April 10, 2012

Journalist, blogger and podcaster Chris Mooney (@ChrisMooney_) talks about his latest book The Republican Brain: The Science of Why they Deny Science and Reality.   What is the psychological disposition of a conservative, how did the cultural battles of the 60’s and 70’s inform today’s divide and what can Liberals learn from the gains of the Right?  Also documentarians, Taggart Siegel and Jon Betz  join us to discuss their movie, Queen of the Sun (@honeybeefilm) about the global bee crisis.  Why is this small insect so crucial in nature and why are bee populations disappearing around the world?  Ultimately what needs to be done to save this important population.  Click thru to watch the movie trailer.
