24. Maira Kalman (Artist) – Scared of Math/Psycho Killer

"My goal is always to be laughing. Do you lose the laughter once you become too good at something?” - Maira Kalman

Think Again is a spontaneous, brainy variety show – The world's brightest minds grapple with surprise topics.

Artist and author Maira Kalman, best known perhaps for her startlingly original New Yorker covers, has a unique way of looking at and living in the world. On this week's episode of "Think Again," she and host Jason Gots try to sort out why they're both so terrified of math, and whether militarized sociopaths are a necessary part of our world.

Maira's new book "Beloved Dog" is a poignant, hilarious look at a creature the artist once considered a deadly monster, and now can't live without.
