62. Fact or Fiction: How to Properly Evaluate Conspiracy Theories

Listen to the episode on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Overcast, Stitcher, Google Podcasts, or on your favorite podcast platform.


Conspiracy theories are nothing new. The question is: how should we process these pieces of information? Chances are, most of us will believe whatever satisfies our preconceived notions, whether true or not. Here are my thoughts on this.

  • Becoming empirical in the face of not being able to find a plausible explanation for conspiracy theories, even if the results can be scary [12:11]
  • Restating the purpose of this episode [14:54]
  • Closing message [16:04]
