Learn Me Something
About This Show
Learn Me Something is a podcast that celebrates our ignorance as the beginning of the search for Truth. Every week we select diverse subjects outside our neurosphere and set out to teach/learn something about them. The intent is to learn/teach something, for all of us. Recognizing the evolving world we live in, our end goal is to teach critical thinking strategies to enable us to see past falsehoods.
