Episode 48 - Have Fewer Opinions

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
