About This Show
We (Adam & Brian) are obsessed with the spot where modern science meets philosophy. As proud wearers of lifetime nerd badges, we have found this to be the place where the most interesting questions are both formulated and discussed.
There are some common themes throughout Zengineering, but we've uncovered a shared personal pursuit of this question: How can we build our mental model of the world so it can inform and guide our actions in positive ways? We do our best to share this exploration.
We discuss lots of tech, lots of science, and go on lots of random tangents, but we always try to bring it back to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything.

030 - On How to Argue Good - with Mike Rosolio
7 days ago
We missed the Rhetorical Theory and Semantics class in school, but our guest this week got his degree in it! What's that mean? He's really good at arguing, and persuading, and finding holes in your BS!! In this episode, the three of us set out to introduce logical fallacies, but ended up lost in a discussion about just, well ... how to have a reasonable discussion. Why is it that so many conversations these days end in a fight? What's up the state of discourse in modern society? We talk about logical structures, wander through some examples in the news, and then zoom out to talk about strategies for engaging in conversations that aren't just a waste of everyone's time. Think about your most recent conversation with that crazy relative, give this episode a listen, and then try that conversation again. See how it goes!

Great podcast with quite quirky and interesting hosts. Love the paths they take to find the purpose and meaning behind modern tech.
