Maria Konnikova & Brian Koppelman | The Confidence Game

Join Maria Konnikova, bestselling author and New Yorker columnist, as she looks into The Confidence Game: Why We Fall for It . . . Every Time. From Melville to The Usual Suspects to Bernie Madoff, the art of the con in fact and fiction remains enduringly fascinating. Learn the ins and outs of why we’re wired to get roped in, fleeced, and spun back out, from one of our leading psychological storytellers.

Maria is joined in conversation by filmmaker, producer, and writer Brian Koppelman, whose work on the screenplay for Ocean’s Thirteen places him squarely in the lineage of the con-fascinated.
