'BradCast' 2/28/2017: (Guest: APA's Dr. Vaile Wright on 'Post-Election Stress Disorder')
< 1 day ago
Brad's back on today's show -- and with plenty to stress about. The DoJ makes it official and flips its position on the case against Texas' discriminatory Photo ID voting restriction law, and nearly a week goes by before the White House offers any comment at all on the triple shooting in Olathe, Kansas, where a man is said to have shouted "Get out of my country!" before opening fire on two engineers from India, legal residents in the country for years, because he thought they were Iranians here illegally. Then, we're joined by Dr. Vaile Wright of the American Psychological Association to discuss the APA's new survey finding, for the first time in the study's history, a notable up-tick in stress among Americans of all political parties in the wake of the nomination and election of Donald Trump. Wright breaks down which groups are more likely to be stressed out by the election and why; how Trump's rhetoric against immigrants has consequences; how social media contributes to making it all much worse; and what you can do if you are among the now-majority of the nation feeling overwhelmed by the constant and disturbing barrage of troubling news. Finally, we close with a bit of good news, as a new poll finds some two-thirds of Americans do not want to see the Affordable Care Act ('ObamaCare') completely dismantled, with huge majorities supporting the landmark legislation's key provisions.

More than just the radio version of the Brad Blog
It's one of the most informative, investigative and entertaining shows on radio or the Internet. Brad Friedman and Desi Doyen are my heroes. Their show ranks up there with Ian Master's Background Briefing.
