Show Notes

Just in time for Thanksgiving arguements about politics, I bring you today's episode on the mistakes we make in interpreting or even hearing data that don't agree with the way we see the world. 

Dr. Rick Kamins is a clinical psychologist with decades of experience in therapy and managed health care. He's an award-winning teacher, a deep font of knowledge on how we function as thinking humans, and also my dad. I'm honored and lucky to be able share a piece of his wisdom with you in this interview.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
