Episode 28 | The Science of Stupid

There is a reason that so many people are misinformed or duped into believing what is not true. The reason…agnotology. A term coined by Robert Proctor. Rick Henderson and Mike Bell discuss the science and business of strategically keeping people confused and ignorant for the purposes of gaining or keeping power. Don’t let your motto be, “Often wrong, never in doubt.”

    I’m actually am commenting on a different episode but I can’t find it because of the way ya’ll organized this website.
    I am a Cowboys fan. What is your problem with Cowboys fans, you’re in Utah! Is it because of that dream you had about your wife cheating on you?
    By the way, I really enjoy your podcast. I think I found it a couple of days ago, and I have listened to 24 of your episodes already. I like that you actually use real logic and you are (mostly) kind. I like that you try to understand the other side. I also have been out of the loop on some of the news like the stuff about safe spaces and my family would talk about it without letting me in. Here I can understand what is going on.
    I actually have experienced people my age (19) who are like those snowflakes. It’s really frustrating. God bless ya’ll. Go Cowboys!

    1. Kate,

      Thank you for listening and taking the time to comment. I’ve always loved to cheer against the Cowboys. I’m sure I don’t have a good reason.

      The best way to listen to the show is iTunes or any other podcast platform. We would greatly appreciate it if you left a review on whatever podcast platform you use.
