Kevin Dutton, research psychologist at the Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Oxford and co-author of 'Sorted!: The Good Psychopath's Guide to Bossing Your Life' joins Jonathan to talk about the spectrum of psychopathy and how some of us could do with a little bit more psychopath in us!
