Tomorrow I'm interviewing Michael Shermer, author of the hot selling new book The Believing Brain: From Ghosts and Gods to Politics and Conspiracies---How We Construct Beliefs and Reinforce Them as Truths. This will be for the show to air on Monday, June 6. If you have any questions you think I ought to ask Michael, post them here. I'm reading the book and it is really good so far, though I think I disagree with Shermer slightly--only slightly--about the psychologies of liberals and conservatives. But that's probably no surprise, as I'm a liberal and he's a libertarian. You can order the book here.
