Jason Graham-Nye Chris Dominic

Show Notes

Chris gives Jason a quiz on conspiracy theories, and then the two answer the first listener question of 2021, "Why do people believe in conspiracy theories?" 

The two then interview retired Clinical Psychologist and Past President of the American Society of Trial Consultants, Doug Keene, Ph.D.  

Doug drops some wisdom about the structures and motivations at play and then shares a way to talk to people you care about who have a very different view of truth than you do.
