The Wrong Stuff

Whom Should I Interview About Being Wrong? You Tell Me.

There’s only one question I’ve asked of every person I’ve interviewed for this Slate series: If you could hear someone else being interviewed about wrongness, who would it be? Now I’d like you to answer the same question. Who’s got the most interesting relationship to error? Whose job requires them to think obsessively about being wrong? Who has made the biggest mistakes? Whose personality, background, or line of work impels them to deny it-or encourages them to admit it? Submit your ideas for potential Wrong Stuff interviewees in the comments section below. If you’re the first person to suggest someone I wind up interviewing, I’ll send you a free copy of the book.
