144. How To See Through The Media’s Lies

We recently looked at how much faster lies spread than the truth. But, I want to dive deeper to see how we're being lied to and help you identify lies in headlines, articles, and assertions being put forward regularly.

I think all of these little lies add up and make it difficult to trust any authority. But, if we sharpen our minds and are aware of the deception being presented, we can see the lies. This tangled web is artfully articulated in Empire of Lies, which I reviewed last episode.

142. Don’t Attribute To Stupidity That Which Is Proven To Be Malice

Stupidity doesn't explain everything. And, in our culture, it seems like too many sensible people deny evidence that points to malice in favor of the stupidity explanation. I try to look at things in a charitable light and not assign motives. That said, eventually when evidence stacks up high enough, it's time to admit that what may appear accidental wasn't. And, to not allow people to simply ask questions, but insist that they're conspiracy theorists if they do, is wrong. That's why today we're going to take a look at real conspiracies that are known world-wide as well as weird occurrences that you aren't allowed to attribute malice to- or even ask about.

122. Problems With Police And Riots

In light of recent events, it seems necessary to look at the issue of police brutality and the response we've seen. There are a lot of people, I think, getting this wrong and would like to address these issues.

120. Keep The Old Normal

I don't know about you, but I don't like the talk about a "New Normal." Today's show is a look at things that people are trying to change that may have some other bad consequences.

103. Irish Influence in America

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, is like to take a look at what the Irish have done in America, beyond just building the railroad. Also, well look at a bit you can do to prepare (and stay prepared) for the Wu Flu.

98. Do Facts Matter?

Do Facts Matter? My answer is yes... for the most part. Today, we’ll discuss when facts are important and when an inaccurate statement leads to a fallacious attack on the one asserting an idea.

87. Impeachment Update

This will be a quick episode where I try to capture my basic thoughts on the current impeachment proceedings. I try not to talk too much about the nitty-gritty of politics, but I think that some important ideas to discuss here. "The genius of impeachment lay in the fact that it could punish the man...
