Cellar Door Skeptics 165: Be Intellectually Humble Through Intelligent Speculation

Well if you have not heard the news, #45 is not shutting down the government, but issuing a national emergency to get his ridiculous wall built. This week on the show we had to address the wall, some of the criticisms or lies that he is supporting to try and fund the wall, and how there could be an emerging law suit all because he has to brag about his supposed accomplishments.

The interview part of the show is with a PHD candidate of Physics and creator of Intellegent Speculation Platform. We discuss with him what he purposes as the laws of critical thinking, how he became a freethinker, and his journey to agnosticism. Given the climate we live in, this is an important subject we hope everyone engages in to try with the upcoming elections.

The show closes talking about our charity of the week and our Quick Saves.
