The Confirmation Bias Podcast
About This Show
Brothers butting heads in an entertaining yet enlightening discussion on subjects where others fear to tread. On the confirmation bias podcast you will hear your hosts, Keith and Kevin Ledig discuss news and current events. We will smack talk, fact check, and smash ignorance. Topics for discussion include but are not limited to social, racial, and LGBT issues, politics, religion, economics, and pretty much everything that affects you. Local, national and global news will be discussed. This isn’t your 6 o’clock news. We have fun with it, we don’t hold back. Satirical political commentary that should at times make you feel slightly uncomfortable but always leave you entertained and well informed.
Confirmation Bias is a tendency to interpret information in a way that confirms your preexisting beliefs while giving less consideration to alternative possibilities regardless of fact. Our goal is to breakdown these biases and get to the root of the issue, and address why your preconceived notions may need to be updated.
