Short Fuse: #PhelpsFace and the Evolutionary Value of Anger


Normally, episodes of All the Rage will be about 30 minutes long.  Every now and then, though, I’ll do a much shorter episode, called a Short Fuse, on something topical.

In this Short Fuse, I talk about the #PhelpsFace meme that’s been floating around (see below) and what it tells us about the evolutionary value of anger.

All the Rage is a brand new podcast from Dr. Ryan Martin, psychologist and anger researcher at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. From road rage to internet trolls, All the Rage covers all topics related to anger and violence. If you want to be a guest, or just have a question or an idea for an episode, call or text (920) 328-5167 or email me at
