“Jumping at Shadows” is Sacramento-based journalist Sasha Abramsky's polemic against what he calls America's most dangerous epidemic: irrational fear. Abramsky portrays a political and cultural landscape that is, increasingly, defined by its worst fears and anxieties. And he examines how miscalculating risk impacts life, everything from the medicines we take to how we parent. Abramsky joins us to discuss his book and the political implications of fear.
