About this Episode

Chris Spangle and Rhinehold discuss the frustration felt by many Americans at the binary argument taking place around the pandemic. Many people see merit and fault with "openers" and "closers" but have become frustrated by the lack of clarity surrounding the data. We discuss different cognitive biases, how to judge information, and why people gravitate towards conspiracy theories.
