How do you dissect your own thinking and keep honest when you step into the firehose of modern politics that is filled with fake and incomplete reporting? One answer, 'Be humble' as Steven Novella explains. Politics Within Reason shills our very first book (we were not paid to)! Steven Novella a host of the Skeptics Guide to the Universe podcast joins us to talk about his new book - The Skeptics Guide to the Universe - How to Know What's Really Real in a World Increasingly Full of Fakes. We talk about the hoax associated with farmer suicides in India, how con men operate and how to be a critical thinker. Disclaimer: Michael and Sam did receive free pre-release editions of the book, but also ordered their own copies because they enjoyed it that much. Sam's was also stolen at the airport. We hope whoever stole it enjoys it as much as we did.
