Ep. 131: The World’s Friendliest Psychopath

Dr. James Fallon

James Fallon Square


We are taught that psychopaths are dangerous individuals who should be avoided at all costs. This is probably good advice. Dr. James Fallon is a neuroscientist at UC Irvine who has been studying the brains of killers for over a decade…including his own. Dr. Fallon is a psychopath by definition, although he is not dangerous by any means (or so he says). It turns out psychopathy is pretty common, and just because people have the brain of a psychopath, that does not condemn them to a life of violent crime and murder.

Listen to our discussion about what exactly creates a dangerous psychopath, and how we can avoid them. We also discuss which of our presidents exhibit the most psychopathic traits, how Dexter is impossible, his time as a pageant baby, and his amazing collegiate football record.
