    When Leaders Go Mad - Coleman Hughes & Christopher Ferguson S2 (Ep.1)

    Welcome to season two of Conversations with Coleman and to the first episode of the New Year.

    Today’s guest is Christopher Ferguson. Christopher is an American psychologist who serves as a professor and co-chair of psychology at Stetson University in Florida. He previously served as an associate professor of psychology and criminal justice at Texas A&M International University and in 2014, he was named a fellow of the APA.

    Christopher and I talked about the definition of mental illness, prescribing Adderall to children, the link between creativity and mental illness, how mental illness affected historical figures like Alexander the Great, Hitler, and Stalin.

    The Tides of American Politics with David Shor (Ep.19)

    The Tides of American Politics with David Shor (Ep.19)

    For exclusive member-only content become a CwC subscriber via https://colemanhughes.org/ Today’s guest is David Shor, a political data scientist. David worked for the Obama campaign and was described in New York Magazine as “Obama’s in-house Nate Silver”. You may know David’s name because he was fired in June, over a tweet that was widely viewed as innocent. The tweet cited research showing that riots, unlike non-violent protests, tend to move voters to the right. Although Coleman wanted to talk to David about the circumstances of his firing, due to legal reasons, David can’t talk about it publicly.

    This episode focuses on the basics of polling and why the polls under predicted Trump’s performance in both 2016 and 2020. Coleman also talked about David’s skepticism of the so-called ‘Shy Trump Voter Effect’, the problem of non-response bias, and what to make of the growing cultural divide between college-educated and non-college-educated voters. Coleman had a very productive disagreement about the so-called racial resentment scales, used as a tool to understand why people voted for Trump and much more.

    The End of Trump with Andrew Sullivan (Ep.18)

    For exclusive member-only content become a CwC subscriber via https://colemanhughes.org/

    Coleman's latest episode features Andrew Sullivan, a British born American writer and blogger. Andrew is a political commentator, a former editor at the New Republic, and the author or editor of six books. He also started a very famous political blog called the Daily Dish in 2000 and eventually moved that blog to Time Magazine, The Atlantic, The Daily Beast, and is now running an independent subscription-based format on Substack.

    This episode was recorded last Thursday, right after the election, and before it was completely certain that Trump had lost. During this episode, they look at Trump's single-term presidency in retrospect and evaluate which fears about him proved true and which proved false. They talk about the lack of a Biden landslide, and what that means for the long term prospects of Trumpism — even in the absence of Trump himself. They talk about the problem of elite bubbles misunderstanding the rest of the nation, the relationship between Trump and the far left, and much more.
