Orchids and dandelions on the Brian Lehrer Show

Brian Lehrer
I’ll be talking with WNYC’s excellent Brian Lehrer on his show this morning, from 11:06 to about 11:25, discussing my Atlantic article about the “orchid gene” hypothesis, which holds that many of the genes that are known to make us vulnerable to problems such as depression, hyperaggression or antisocial behavior, or distractibility — can also make us less vulnerable to these same afflictions.
update: You can listen to the segment here:

You can tune in in the NYC area at FM 93.9 or AM 820; listen to a live internet stream; or go here afterwards for a podcast of the section.
