From terrorism, disease, war, kidnappings and more, we live in a fear-filled society. However, historically Americans are safer and healthier than ever before. So why doesn't it feel that way? Dr. Hallowell speaks with sociologist Barry Glassner, whose book, The Culture of Fear, explores why the perception of fear has increased, and not the actual level of risk. They talk about who profits from our fear and why. We also hear from people on the street about what they fear.

Please take a moment to fill out our listener survey! It's only 7 quick questions and we'd really appreciate it! Thank you in advance.
