On February 22nd, 2018, I did a talk for the Inclusive Excellence Series at UW-Green Bay. You can watch that talk, The Adaptive Value of Anger, below.
In this fifth episode of season 2 of All the Rage, we talk human trafficking in popular culture with Dr. Bryan Carr, host of Serious Fun. From Taken to The Punisher to The Girl Who Played with Fire, we discuss the various ways modern day slavery has found its way into the popular culture and how these depictions influence the public.
Dr. Ryan Martin is the chair of the Psychology Program at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay and a nationally known anger researcher. His work focuses on healthy and unhealthy expressions of anger, including how we express anger online. He teaches courses on mental illness, emotion, and anger and violence. He also hosts the popular UW-Green Bay Psychology podcast, Psychology and Stuff.

I gave a talk tonight on anger for the UW-System Alumni Link event here in Green Bay. During the talk, I provided six anger-related facts and promised they could find more information on Twitter or via Facebook.
I also promised I would tweet out a survey where they could learn more about the types of angry thoughts they may have. Here is that survey.
Here are the six facts with links to additional information:
- Anger is one of the four most basic emotions along with sadness, fear, and joy. Learn more.
- Witnessing aggressive expressions of anger at work leads to a decrease in creativity and productivity. Learn more.
- A fair workplace, where employees understand decisions and feel they are treated with respect, is associated with less employee anger and greater productivity. Learn more.
- Research shows that women who express anger at work lose influence over their peers, whereas men tend to gain credibility when they express anger. Learn more.
- Anger is the most viral emotion online, spreading faster than sadness, fear, or joy. Learn more.
- Letting it out (aka catharsis) doesn’t work; it likely makes things worse. Learn more.
