The Lucas Rockwood Show

If you have a phone or computer, you could start a media company right now and publish and share whatever you like. On one hand, this is amazing and democratizes what was previously reserved for a handful of gatekeepers. At the same time, the deluge of messages, often with ulterior motives, makes it extremely difficult for most of us to think freely. Should you trust governmental organizations? Left or right leaning news media? And what about the bro science podcaster? I don’t have the answers to any of these questions, but our guest on this week’s podcast does. 

Listen and learn:

  • About the wisdom of the crowd
  • The dangers of conformity
  • Why conspiracy thinking exists
  • Poetic truth vs. real world facts
