Hidden Brain: A Founding Contradiction – 12 Days of PodcastPD 2018

Welcome to day 3 of the 12 Days of PodcastPD!

Between December 26, 2018, and January 6, 2019, we are recommending one podcast or podcast episode per day! All of our recommendations will encourage you to laugh, think, cry, or do.

Today’s recommendation comes from Chris.

Podcast: Hidden Brain

Host: Shankar Vedantam

Episode: A Founding Contradiction: Thomas Jefferson’s Stance On Slavery (November 26, 2018)

Description: On this episode of Hidden Brain, Shankar and his guest, Annette Gordon-Reed, take a deep dive into history as a window into psychology. They look closely at the life and beliefs of Jefferson who helped shape the modern United States — and ask how his complexities and contradictions have echoes in our own lives.

Quote from Gordon-Reed, “The fascinating thing about Jefferson is that he, in some ways, embodies the country,” she says. “A lot of Jefferson’s contradictions are alive in us. I don’t think there’s anybody in the founding generation who embodies that so well… and that’s what makes him a subject that we can’t really, I think, do without.”
