Episode 48 - Have Fewer Opinions

March 27, 2019

In this episode we drank craft beer as usual and concluded a really strong opinion: we all should have fewer opinions. Why do we feel entitled to an opinion on everything? Do we vocalize our opinions in order to change the world or are we simply trying to prestige signal to our social groups? We dive into these questions, and more, along with a mind-bending "would you rather?" towards the end of the episode.

I expanded on these ideas in a short blog post which you can check out over on our website at: www.thunktankpodcast.com

Episode 46 - Would You Rather: Desert Island or A Life Raft with a Methed up Alex Jones?

March 10, 2019

Oof sorry for the long title. But I think you get the idea. We’re bringing the would you rather game back hard to our podcast, and we figured we should start with a special addition episode devoted to this wild genie game. Oh yeah, our co-host Johnny is a genie. You probably know that already, if not you should listen and find out. If genies are real, it might help you get out of a future sticky situation.

Episode 43 - Trump National Emergency: B.S. or Brilliant Strategy?

February 18, 2019

Think the world’s gone crazy? So do we! Join us this week as we deep dive into the madness that is the U.S. President Donald Trump’s declaration of a National “Emergency”. What is his “real” goal here? And how can we call out baloney on both sides of the aisle in an attempt to point to reason – rather than partisan lunacy – as the path to make a better world.

Well, you’re not alone! Join us as we discuss the growing movement – the Intellectual Dark Web – from its inception this past year to how this confederacy of academics, scientists, writers, etc. could hold the key to making true free-thinking great again.

Episode 16 - Political Polarization on the Left and Right

April 6, 2018

 

So you're saying...you're alt right? Alt left? Is there room in-between anymore in our increasingly polarized political theatre for moderation and compromise.  Has political correctness gone too far? Is there a free speech crisis on college campuses?

Join the Thunk Tank crew as we discuss the state of modern political polarization in America . Good think we had some beers on hand for this one. Perhaps politicians should follow suit? X)
