Times have changed. We haven’t.
Just over five years ago, this blog got its start examining bold claims, the world over. It spawned a podcast which blossomed into a full-fledged radio career, broadcasting news across all 24 time zones alongside legends in broadcasting. Venturing further into the world of talk radio, we have enjoyed yet another year delivering science and tech news direct from journal sources, interviewing some supremely awesome individuals, exploring topics like critical thinking, offering an extended primer on skepticism, delving deeper into science, public health, global issues of scientific import, looking forward to innovations— even touching on educational topics in literature, arts, and entertainment.
When we started this blog, we never imagined that politics would become such a large, almost pervasive issue in our everyday lives. We never dreamed that facts and scientific evidence would become so politicized. That teaching people the fundamentals of how to evaluate sources in all elements of media would become so important. That security issues could perhaps influence our future so swiftly.
To that end, we find it more important than ever to continue–and expand– the discussion.
While we may focus more on global issues, our core mission has never changed: to offer thought-provoking, original content and commentary; to inspire a forum where thinkers of all kinds feel comfortable enough to come together to have respectful, nonpartisan discussion.
…Believer, or skeptic.
…Cynic, or pragmatist.
…All manner of political self-identification.
All academic, reasoned, evidence-based, discussion welcome.
Expect more soon!
