The Bad Show
On this episode of Radiolab, we wrestle with the dark side of human nature. We encounter a man who scrambles our notions of good and evil, unpack one of the most famous (and misunderstood) psychological experiments ever done, and listen in on a conversation with one of the most prolific serial killers in US history.
