I had the great pleasure of interviewing my former next door office neighbor from my days at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, John Hibbing. We talked about his book (with Kevin Smith and John Alford)Predisposed: Liberals, Conservatives, and the Biology of Political Differences. My interview with John was the second of my guest hosting appearances on 89.9 WORT in Madison’s “A Public Affair.” I had a ball and was happy to share John and friends’ most interesting research with our listeners.

I recommend downloading so you can fast forward past the banjo that ends the previous show and Friday’s news that leads off the show.
