By: Rebecca McInroy

To paraphrase Donald Rumsfeld, there are the known knowns, the known unknowns, and the unknown unknowns; and it’s in the latter that the most cause for concern arises.

In this episode of Two Guys on Your Head, Dr. Art Markman and Dr. Bob Duke talk about the language we use to describe emotions and why we should be paying more attention to it.
