[Unedited] Daniel Kahneman with Krista Tippett
With his book â€œThinking, Fast and Slow,â€ Daniel Kahneman emerged as one of the most intriguing voices on the complexity of human thought and behavior. He is a psychologist who won the Nobel Prize in economics for helping to create the field of behavioral economics â€” and is a self-described â€œconstant worrier.â€ Itâ€™s fun, helpful, and more than a little unnerving to apply his insights into why we think and act the way we do in this moment of social and political tumult. Daniel Kahneman is best known for his book â€œThinking, Fast and Slow.â€ Heâ€™s the Eugene Higgins Professor of Psychology Emeritus at Princeton University, professor of psychology and public affairs emeritus at Princetonâ€™s Woodrow Wilson School, and a fellow of the Center for Rationality at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. This interview is edited and produced with music and other features in the On Being episode â€œDaniel Kahneman â€” Why We Contradict Ourselves and Confound Each Other.â€ Find more at onbeing.org.

What Nate Silver's learned about forecasting elections
This close to an election, who do I want to hear from? Nate Silver, of course. I sat down with the FiveThirtyEight founder and math wizard to talk about how he builds his forecasting models, what theyâ€™re saying about 2018, how big the Democratsâ€™ structural disadvantage in the House and Senate really is, whether there's a purpose to predicting election outcomes, which campaign reporters he reads, and whether Trump is the favorite for 2020. Silver and I also share the experience of building journalism outlets trying to do things a bit differently over the past five years, so we discuss what heâ€™s learned along the way, what he wishes he knew at the beginning, and how he hires. Silver brings unusual clarity and rigor to the topics he focuses on, and right now, given the speed and intensity of the elections news cycle, a bit of rigor is a welcome thing.
