A Conversation with Lt. Colonel (Retired) Dave Grossman About the Psychology of Killing and Battle

Former United States Army Ranger and Lieutenant Colonel (Retired) Dave Grossman is the guest on this week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show. Lt. Colonel Grossman is one of the world's leading experts on the psychology of killing and combat. He is the author of several books including On Killing and On Combat.

Lt. Colonel Grossman travels approximately 300 days a year, where in seminars and workshops he shares his insights on "killology" with military special forces and elite law enforcement personal from around the world,

In this installment of The Chauncey DeVega Show, Chauncey and Lt. Colonel Grossman discuss war and warfare, mass shootings, America's culture of violence, if armed teachers help to prevent school violence, how sleep deprivation is directly connected to suicides, police brutality, and questions about firearms and self-defense.

During this week's podcast, Chauncey also offers some sharing on the passing of Prince and the former WWE/WWF professional wrestler known as Chyna, how best to die, open marriages, adultery, and Beyonce's amazing "Lemonade" video music-essay.

In this week's installment of The Chauncey DeVega Show, Chauncey also talks about the death penalty and his eye-opening experience attending a panel on the subject at Chicago's Harold Washington Library. And not to be too dragged down by the morbid, this week's show concludes with a discussion of the heartwarming and life affirming marriage of 90-year-old former U.S. Senator Harris Wofford to his 40-year-old partner Matthew Charlton.
