Jon Ronson and Brian Klaas – On Psychopaths and Power

Why do bad people disproportionately rise to power? Do broken systems produce authoritarian leaders, and if so – what can we do about it?

In this episode of the How To Academy Podcast, author and documentarian Jon Ronson and political scientist Brian Klaas investigate the relationship between power, psychopathy, and corruption. Drawing on the insights from Jon’s widely acclaimed book The Psychopath Test and Brian’s new book Corruptible, for which he met some of the world’s most reviled and dangerous leaders, this is a provocative and revelatory journey into what power is and who gets to wield to it.
