Intimate. Telling. Captivating.

Thank you thank you thank you Glen Washington and the rest of the Snap team for telling the stories everyone wants to hear but they never knew so until they do. For telling the stories dying to be told. For connecting people around the world with stories so thoughtfully articulated that I get chills 9 times out of 10. I love your podcast and I’m so grateful I turned on NPR (I never listen to NPR) and sat in my car for twenty minutes catching a glimpse into this Snap world. I’ll never stop listening ❤️

The Scientist and the Psychopath

The interview between Dr. James Fallon and Julia Dewitt was very interesting and illuminating in terms of psychopaths and their nature. While psychopaths tend to always be associated with serial killers, it is not a rule, and one can be a psychopath with going on a killing spree. This interview is catered to anyone who wants to listen to it, as it gives clear information and is quite easy to understand. They explain all terms and the situation with simplicity to allow individuals to understand more clearly. I found that this was quite an interesting and truthful story, because i have watched a lot of shows about psychology and profiling of criminals, i understand the confusion with categorizing psychopaths. You never truly know who within your peers is a psychopath, and their lack of criminal record does not mean they do not exhibit psychopathic behavior. It is giving up to dat information, explaining an individual’s personal experience and how he had the same neurological pattern as psychopaths, but did not truly believe it until he had talked with his family and friends, and they all agreed with the diagnosis. I found this incredibly entertaining and interesting, especially the part where he states that his nice guy act is all for show, but he finds it exhausting. As such, he is still performing psychopathic behavior, and manipulating others’ opinions of him for his own personal gain and self-interest. However, its a bit weird that as a professor of psychology and human behavior, he is not able to try to make a positive and genuine change, despite psychopathy not being curable.

The Scientist and the Psychopath

This episode was very interesting to me. As someone who finds sociopathy and psychopathy to be very fascinating, this really provided insight on how little we really know and how truly common it can be. Someone so ordinary can easily be psycopathic but no one would really think about that but it's right in front of them. This podcast is not catered to any specific audience which is why I think it's very good. It can be understood by anyone going from Academic teachers to students to anyone enjoying the series for the stories and fun.
