Stephen Colbert tries to understand how we decide

| February 10, 2009 | Reply

Stephen Colbert mixes it up with Jonah Lehrer, author of “How We Decide.”   The disjointed conversation does have its serious moments, with the focus being the emotional self versus the rational self.   Sometimes I wonder whether Colbert is tempted to drop his character for ten minutes and just have a good conversation with a thoughtful guest.  This might have been one of those times.
