Topic Idea: Who On The Show Is A Psychopath

 In Blog

From Brad Majors, Afternoon Host, WPIG/Olean, NY via ‘Radio Pros’ Facebook Group

Psychopathy is a personality disorder that has been variously described as characterized by shallow emotions (in particular reduced fear), stress tolerance, lacking empathy, coldheartedness, lacking guilt, egocentricity, superficial char, manipulativeness, irresponsibility, impulsivity and antisocial behaviors such as parasitic lifestyle and criminality.

Why is this important? Because the top 10 list of jobs psychopaths gravitate toward has been released, and radio comes in at #3. Check it out here.

Setup Ideas:

  • Ask listeners to choose who on the show makes this statistic true. Take a poll on Facebook, too.


  • Have each member of the show put the name of the “show psychopath” anonymously into a hat. Add them up and reveal the “winner” on-air.


  • Ask an expert. Get a psychiatrist or psychologist on-air to break down psychopathy into attributes the public can understand.
