The Obama Effect, Perhaps.

When Jad and Robert saw this article about a study that found a link between President Obama's election, and the test scores of African Americans, it made them think about an earlier study by Claude Steele,about a psychological effect called "stereotype threat."

On this podcast, they'll tell us about that and answer some listener mail (in the aggregate) answering questions about Patient X and questionable Jad's use of the term 'bitches' in the Choice episode.

Also, dear all, the piano piece you've been asking about from this podcast is: “Vladimir’s Blues” by Max Richter.
