Since 1692, when three girls suffering from seizures in Salem, Massachusetts sparked a witch hunt, Americans have fallen victim to political panics. Unsubstantiated "facts" and absolutist language have combined to produce some of the country's lowest historic moments –- from slavery to the treatment of Muslims following 9/11. Kojo joins author Mark Stein to explore the roots of political panic, why it continues to occur, and how you can stay calm amid a politically-fueled firestorm.
