Jonathan Haidt is giving the Howard H. Baker Junior Center for Public Policy’s 2022 Baker Distinguished Lecture. Haidt is a social psychologist and a professor of ethical leadership in the Stern School of Business at New York University. He says there are three bad ideas that are now a standard part of childhood and education in America, and they are damaging American universities. He spoke with WUOT’s Chrissy Keuper about one of these bad ideas.

Chrissy served as WUOT's News Director and host of monthly public affairs talk show Dialogue from late 2021 to early 2023. Her first job with the station was as weekend student announcer while earning her bachelor's in Anthropology from the University of Tennessee. She had previously been the station's local host for NPR's Morning Edition and All Things Considered news programs; occasionally filled in as host for WUOT's Morning and Afternoon Concerts; and won multiple awards for her interviews, feature stories, and Dialogue.
