      In this month’s podcast, Todd Stiefel’s co-host is Amanda K. Metskas. Together they interview Julia Galef, the president of the Center for Applied Rationality. Listen as Todd and Amanda talk with Julia about everything from using Harry Potter to learn about rationality to the Vulcan straw man problem! (You know you need to find out about that one.) Learn about some of the different types of rationality and where they intersect with humanism. It would be tough to hear a conversation about rationality that’s more fun and uplifting that this one! Todd and Amanda also give an update about what’s going on at Camp Quest this year, including their participation in the upcoming American Humanist Association annual conference, May 30-June 2 in San Diego.

        Skeptics have one defining characteristic... they tend to think a lot about thinking, a process known as "metacognition". Although the human mind is capable of incredible acts of abstract reasoning, it is also susceptible to a bewildering array of flaws. We can hope to overcome these weaknesses by understanding them, in order to improve our ability to reason, and ultimately, to build a better world. In this presentation to the Ottawa Skeptics, Dana Peters describes some topic related to metacognition and its importance to skeptics.
