It is time for another installment of the podcast that you love to hate, The Podunk Polymath Podcast! In the pre-ramble I talk briefly about the Predators success in the playoffs and also a concert O attended this past weekend. I then go into how some douchepickles decided to bring up #reasoncongate from a couple of years ago in order to attempt to invalidate any arguments I made on a totally unrelated subject. I put a video up on the Facebook page and on YouTube to thoroughly explain (once again!) for my newer friends who perhaps didn’t know so that they can make their own determination on how they look at me. Hopefully people can see that I regret what happened and I am doing everything I can to be a better person.
On the palaver this week I talk to Gleb Tsipursky, professor at Ohio State and creator of the the Pro-Truth Pledge. We talk about his insights regarding how people who have strong disagreements, especially on political issues, can find a way to communicate while still staying true to their personal ethics. In a world where the election of Trump has polarized people more than ever, this is a valuable resource for trying to bridge that gap, or at least making the attempt. I thought it was a fascinating conversation, and I hope you agree.
