Science Rules! What's a Psychopath?

The word “psychopath” can be thrown around rather flippantly— but what does it really mean to be a psychopath?

Psychopathy expert Dr. Arielle Baskin-Sommers of Yale University joins us to explain this anti-social trait a little more clearly. And answers some caller questions, including one from Nora who calls in to ask, “Can psychopaths have real relationships?” Plus, Arielle gets “dorky” science on us with a deep dive into the role of empathy in psychopathy.
