Andrew Gelman on Voting and So Much More

In this week’s episode of Free Will, I chat with Columbia political scientist and statistician Andrew Gelman about his book Red State, Blue State, Rich State Poor State, the election, why rich people are increasingly voting Democratic, and even a bit about happiness. Andrew is a man of exceeding epistemic virtue and was worried that he riffed too much on topics outside of his expertise. Of course, I have no such scruples, and found the chat fascinating, because Andrew is.
