The Lincoln Project

Trump may be gone but American politics is still in crisis. The Lincoln Project has sparked a nationwide movement to restore our democracy. This podcast is hosted by co-founder Reed Galen and he is regularly joined by our political experts and guests that helped defeat Trump and continue the mission to stamp out Trumpism and the seditionists who backed him. The podcast discusses today’s political challenges, our vision for the future and how all Americans can be part of our pro-democracy movement.


episode 25: The Narcissist in Chief

Host Reed Galen is joined by psychotherapist, Nick Carmody. They discuss the psychological profile of Donald Trump, the allure of why the GOP has embraced Trumpism, and the reasoning behind the rise of grievance politics & perpetual victimhood. In 2010, Nick experienced two life-changing Traumatic Brain Injuries (eight months apart). The resulting changes in brain functioning, personality, and emotional processing (along with other intense personal experiences) created an obsession-like need to understand and confirm these experiences, and served as motivation to go back to school and work in the psychology field.
