Description

NOTE: While you're certainly welcome to listen to this podcast in any order, I recommend listening in sequential order starting with Episode 1. I think you'll get more out of it that way!

Critical thinking is the most important skill you can have when you’re living in a world that seems to have lost its mind.

Everyone out there is trying to tell you WHAT to think, I want to teach you HOW to think!

In every episode, I’m exposing the logical fallacies & cognitive biases being used by advertisers, politicians, influencers, news outlets, social media memes, and maybe even your own best friend.

Warning: listening to this podcast will cause you to see bad thinking everywhere!

In episode 14, I briefly mentioned something about having a GOOD conversation with others...even those who share a different viewpoint than you. But I felt like I left you hanging a little bit on HOW to go about doing that. So, today, instead of teaching a new fallacy, I'm going to teach you 5 essentials to having a GOOD conversation, even when you and the other person disagree. The 5 Essentials to GOOD communication are: 1. Seek first to understand, then to be understood. 2. Be willing to be persuaded. 3. The goal is to seek truth. 4. Respect & love for the other person. 5. Beware of your own emotional triggers. Want to test yourself on how well you can recognize fallacies in real life?
