iHeartRadio’s New Podcast “Personology” Psychologically Examines Significant Figures in History

It’s hard to imagine exactly what motivated history’s great geniuses: What was it about Marie Curie’s childhood that made her so interested in science and chemistry? What inspired Charles Darwin to travel around the world in the hopes of proving a theory that no one believed in? What prompted Nikola Tesla’s numerous inventions? How did Ludwig van Beethoven write so many profound pieces of music?  


iHeartRadio’s new podcast, “Personology,” aims to answer these questions by psychologically examining historically significant minds. Hosted by Dr. Gail Saltz, the show aims to identify what propelled individuals into greatness and, in turn, how those acts changed all of our lives.


Dr. Gail Saltz is a clinical associate professor of psychiatry at New York Presbyterian Hospital and psychoanalyst at New York Psychoanalytic Institute. She is one of America’s go-to experts on a variety of psychological and mental health issues, especially those pertaining to stress and anxiety, emotional well-being, relationships and the mental health aspects of current news. Dr. Saltz is also the best-selling author of numerous books, including her most recent work, “The Power of Different: The Link Between Disorder and Genius,” which examines the connection between wondrous talent and conditions commonly thought of as disabilities.
