Episode Summary: This episode we start out with our “Idiot of the Week” award then we discuss Group Identity. We discuss the social science’s view on stereotyping but also how people are “approximately rational” when it comes to stereotypes while recognizing that with more detailed information about an individual, group identity and stereotypes are useless. We zero in on identity politics as the cause of the biggest chasm in our society and talk about why that is and how it might someday change for the better. We close the show highlighting some stereotypes from the past that are misremembered and or have changed substantially.
