The publicist I worked with told me that my radio interview with her would be her first, though she's had several print interviews. I've never done an interview so long, so this will be published in two parts This is part one. 
interview notes-- mostly my questions

You cite a quote by Karen Franklin, a researcher in forensic psychology, who said, "By foregrounding intrinsic evil (the diagnosis of) psychopathy marginalizes social p roblems and excuses institutional failures at rehabilitation. We need not  understand a criminal's troubled past or environmental influences. We need not reach out a hand to help him along a pathway to redemption. The psychopath is irredeemable, a dangerous outsider who must be contained or banished. Circular in its reasoning, psychopathy is nonetheless alluring in its simplicity."

Please comment.

Why did you write this book?

She doesn't answer my question, she responds to Franklin quote. I reply that the ID of sociopaths to deny parole is advocated by Robert Hare, 

What are the characteristics of a sociopath as you understand them?

In one part of your book you bring up vampires and compare them to sociopaths.

Then you talk about how sociopaths are treated by indigenous cultures. 

You talk about how sociopaths can be very valuable as attorneys or in business. 

You've described how you learn about people to " develop and get control over them. 

Description reminds me of Phineas Gage, who had a rod go through his brain, and it changed his behavior to be cursing, immoral. 

What's your impression of what I've written so far?

Emotional bias". 

Recidivism 80% compared to 30% non sociopath.

Cost of sociopath recidivism is about half a trillion $ a year.

You write in your book that you would take books that were not yours or take bicycles and sell them, wouldn't that be a crime?

Would you rather have emotions or not have emotions?

Talk about Ayn Rand and sociopathy.

So what's your opinion of Ayn Rand now?

Is she sociopathic?
