11. Thinking's only part of the story - what about deciding‪?‬ THE 'FREE-DUMB' SESSIONS

    • Society & Culture

Think of this episode as the end of the first season, and the beginning of the second season.
We took a winding journey through critical thinking for the first 10 episodes, and the last episode's interview with Carl Davidson seemed a fitting place to wrap that theme up. 
That's why the first part of this episode provides a summary and some clear steps to use when adopting critical thinking into our lives.

However, people seem to enjoy what I've been doing and want more.
 It's also true that critical thinking is but one part of a much longer journey to try and 'free the world of dumb in all its many forms and manifestations'.

There is a model that says 'first we think, then we decide, and then we do'.
We're going to follow that path and part of the reason for this episode is to introduce the theme for the next season of The Free-Dumb Sessions. Decision-making.
