Listen To The Story

Make Me Smart is taking the week off, but don't worry, there's plenty to keep you busy ahead of next week's episode.

You can join our weekly Make Me Smart editorial meetings at noon Pacific/3 p.m. Eastern. You can find us on either Kai Ryssdal's page or Molly Wood's. If you're not a fan of Facebook, we put them up on our site as well. If you can't join us live, that's OK, leave us a comment below the video or send us an email with your idea for a future show.

You can join the company of Norman Lear, Sherry Lansing and David Frum, and answer our Make Me Smart question: "What's something you thought you knew, but later found out you were wrong about?"  

And thanks to our resident Make Me Smart artist, Marian Call, for the music in this episode: "I Wish I Were a Real Alaskan Girl" and "Fret."

It's (almost) not too late to read the first selection in our Make Me Smart book club: "The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion" by Jonathan Haidt. We're going to be talking about the book on next week's show, so send us your thoughts via email or audio file as soon as possible.

If you heard about a book, a song or a movie on the show and you didn't quite catch the name, you can always check out our "Heard on MMS" post and lots of other great writing, like "What We Talk About When We Talk About Jagoffs" by Tony Wagner.

Finally, if you keep it simple, you can always review us on Apple Podcasts, Google Play or wherever you get your podcasts. 

Thanks for listening, and we'll be back next week!
