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!

    The two enemies of good thinking

    Before we dive into talking about the logical fallacies, I wanted to take a minute to talk about the two enemies of good thinking.

    These two enemies are everywhere in our society today and we're told that they're good & true, when in reality...they're not.

Really great!

I just started listening to this podcast a few days ago and I think it’s so needed. We need to be taught how to think for ourselves. Too many entities want to tell us what to think and this resource teaches us a how to think. Keep it up!
