Christofer Lövgren, host of the marvelous Do Explain podcast and world's most famous Swede (second perhaps only to that Alfred fellow with the peace prize), joins us on the pod to teach us how podcasting is really done. And how to pronounce his last name. When we're not all sobbing, we touch on:
- Does Deutschian epistemology give us with Free Will?
- Should one identify as a critical rationalist?
- Does membership in a community, or identification with a label, affect our ability to give and receive criticism?
- How has reading Deutsch and Popper changed our lives?
- Can trauma get stored in the body?
- How often do we cry?
