How can we keep contempt out of our disagreements? And why should we? Arthur talks to John Gottman, who’s spent most of his career as a social psychologist studying contempt within relationships. He is the co-founder of the Gottman Institute in Seattle, where he does work with married couples, and shares his insights on the corrosive nature of contempt, and how we can get out of the habit of expressing it, both in our personal relationships, and more broadly, as a nation.

    Mr Brooks has been an exemplary advocate for free speech as President of AEI. I have heard several podcasts of live events featuring speakers who’s ideas were presented unedited and free of heckling. Here, in an interview, he allows his guest to say his bit in a contempt-free environment.
