Welcome to my blog. I’ll do my best to update it regularly (or semi-regularly, at the least…) with news, writing updates, and other assorted thoughts. Read, enjoy, and please share your thoughts and comments. If you’re looking for psychology pieces at the New Yorker, you can find them here. If you’re looking for my old blog about literature and psychology, Literally Psyched, you can find it here.

My new podcast, The Grift

April 11, 2017

For the last year, I’ve been working on a project that has taken me in an entirely new creative direction: my first podcast. Together with the wonderful team at Panoply, we’ve created a ten-episode series devoted to the art of the grift, called, appropriately enough, The Grift. I explore ten stories of brilliant con artists – and the lives that they leave ruined in their wake.

The Grift

While the podcast was inspired by my most recent book, The Confidence Game, its stories are unique: tales from people I met on my travels over the last three years, that never made it into the book. You’ll hear their voices, their perspectives, their reasons for what they did. I hope you’ll consider subscribing, and do let me know how you enjoy it!
