    0033 - Climate Change, Narcissists, and Doomspeakers

    Climate change is a huge topic. It has myths mapping onto every part of the narcissist's prayer, concerned people, and some claiming the end of everything! Everything likely won't end, but it is real and likely to kill people. We have evidence to back this, strategies to deal with assholes who deny it, and a submission from a listener.

    0032 - Turin the Evidence for the Shroud

    The Shroud of Turin is a piece of fabric in Turin Italy that has little to do with Jesus. By why do so many people think it was the death shroud of Christ? We Discuss this, go over many claims, and we drill down to the evidence. There is some, and we will discuss the evidence and why it is valid or invalid.

    0031 - Don’t be Fooled

    We have discussed many ways to get at truth with incomplete information. We re-assess these and try to apply them to some problems today. There is discussion of what we got right and wrong in the past, making this a great place to start for someone new to the podcast, and we have a ton of updates touching on our current giveaway, why this episode was delayed, vladimir putin buttplugs and more.

    0030 - War of Misinformation

    0030 - War of Misinformation

    With war comes violence and death, and people lying about the violence and death for their own gain. Who is lying and why? What can we know for sure? The Rumor mill, American Politicians, and the involved militaries have motives to misinform. We try to tackle this and point out some people pushing non-sense.

    0029 - The Curious Case of Birds

    0029 - The Curious Case of Birds

    Some are saying that the US government secretly killed all the birds and replaced them with advanced drones. This is non-sense and satire, but still useful to tease apart so we can understand how to tackle other less obvious misinformation. This is analogous to many other harmful lies and we will discuss several from a few angles.

    0028 - Infographics and Media Consolidation

    0028 - Infographics and Media Consolidation

    There are tons of pretty pictures with claims of wisdom and data. Some are pure shit and some are decent. One came to our attention about media consolidation and we want to hold it up as an example to discuss the good and bad of infographics. We discuss media consolidation and how to vet sources even as an ever smaller number of companies are producing the majority of our news interferes with that.

Great rapport, great topics, great facts!

I just found this podcast and so far it's a delight to listen to. The topics covered have been great (conspiracy theories, political drama, etc.) and the hosts have a great rapport and just the right amout of humor has been sprinkled throughout. The audio quality was a bit rough in the first couple episodes but by #3 they seem to have figured it out, and now it sounds great. I've subscribed and plan to listen as long as they keep making episodes!

Terrible

All they do is twist the truth to fit their narrative

Educational AND fun!

A well-sourced and thought-provoking podcast about current events and logic in general. Looking forward to hearing more.
