On this week’s episode of Let’s Know Things, we touch on the idea of shunning, then deep-dive into empiricism versus faith, trust and journalism, and how politicians are like magicians.

We also discuss why diluting the influence of journalism and journalists is a wonderful short-term tactic, but potentially very harmful in the long-term.

I wanted to share this most recent episode of my podcast here on the blog because I feel the topic is particularly relevant to understanding what’s happening in the world right now.

I also think it’s a good example of the types of work I’m going on mediums beyond this blog, for anyone who’s curious what I’ve been up to of late.
