In this episode, we chat with Arthur Lieber about his recent book Political Introverts (How Empathetic Voters Can Help Save American Politics). Lieber explains how a significant, introverted portion of the electorate is turned off by the loudness and boastfulness of our politics. If politics can be made more slower and more thoughtful, he argues, then political introverts can help to transform the political culture. In addition, we discuss the ways our political culture and educational systems are implicated in the failures of American democracy.
