Jessica Tracy on pride and the secret to human success


For the second episode of the season, we dropped by the Emotion and Self Lab in the Department of Psychology to chat with Professor Jessica Tracy about her new book Take Pride: Why the Deadliest Sin Holds the Secret to Human Success. Pride, says Professor Tracy, is the reason for almost everything we do — outside of the tasks necessary for basic survival, that is. We couldn’t resist asking a few questions about Donald Trump. And Professor Tracy offered us a few social media tips, too.

We also popped into the School of Music this week to find out about their Wednesday Noon Hours — a weekly concert series that’s been running since 1967.
