Jul 12, 2017

Bill Radke speaks with Mary Mann, author of "Yawn: Adventures in Boredom." Mann discusses her research into why we get bored, the good that can come out of boredom and some of the ways people have tried to fight boredom through the years. One of those ways involves a study where people chose to give themselves electric shocks rather than sit silently in a room.
