Does it help to have psychopathic traits when trying to forge a career in business? We look at the links between psychopathy, leadership and capitalism. Kevin Dutton, professor of psychology at Oxford University, argues that certain psychopathic traits - detachment, coolness under pressure and a lack of empathy - may be beneficial to business and lead to success. And we speak to Jon Ronson, author of the Psychopath Test, who argues that the capitalist system rewards psychopathy.
In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends. </div><div><br></div><div>An independent podcast from James Barr (@imjamesbarr) and Dan Hudson (@DanHudson).
