Psychologist Philip Zimbardo is the guest on this week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show. He is one of the world's leading authorities on social dominance behavior and group dynamics. Most famous for the 1971 Stanford Prison Experiment, Dr. Zimbardo has written dozens of books and articles including the most recent "The Time Paradox: The New Psychology of Time That Will Change Your Life" and "The Lucifer Effect: Understanding How Good People Turn Evil". His new work examines heroism and the ability of individuals to contribute to the Common Good by being socially conscious and present in their day-to-day decision-making. 


During this week's show, Dr. Zimbardo and Chauncey discuss the rise of Donald Trump and his impact on America's culture, bullying behavior by children, what does it mean to be a "hero", how to do small things to improve the world, and his reflections on the Stanford Prison Experiment. 

On this week's show, Chauncey also shares some thoughts about last weekend's Wrestlemania event, offers some comments about his widely read essay about Bernie Sanders and liberal racism, reads some hate mail and also one of the greatest comments about the vileness of Donald Trump and his inner cabal ever to be found on the Internet.
