I like to sometimes recommend resources that I enjoyed which offer a broader range, more insight, and greater detail than I can possibly cover in 1000 words. More importantly, I like to recommend resources that have greatly improved my decision making skills.
I have mentioned before that decision making is one of the important topics covered in many leadership courses: the decision cycle, decision methods, etc. I have yet to come across critical thinking as it applies to decision making. Specifically, how information (evidence) is gathered and weighed; and if decisions are made in a rational and unbiased manner.
I gladly introduce the podcast “Rationally Speaking”, the official podcast of the New York City Skeptics.
The podcast focuses on rational thought, philosophy, science, and the nonsense that often claims to be the former three. The topics can be sometimes a bit esoteric, but to become good at something, you have work at a level above your current capability.
“Rationally Speaking” is the bi-weekly podcast of New York City Skeptics. Join hosts Massimo Pigliucci and Julia Galef as they explore the borderlands between reason and nonsense, likely and unlikely, and science and pseudoscience. Any topic is fair game as long as we can bring reason to bear upon it, with both a skeptical eye and a good dose of humor!”
