TFTRH #32 - The Skeptic of the North: Former Conspiracist, Current Skeptic

Mick West

Phil is a former conspiracy theorist in Northern Ireland who got into conspiracy theories aged 18, around 14 years ago. Going to university exposed him to a variety of people and to new ways of thinking, which over the course of a year gradually pulled him out of the rabbit hole.

Now Phil has started a YouTube channel as "The Skeptic of the North" to share some of his thoughts on the topic, and specifically on the conversational method of discussion Epistemology — how people know what they think they know. We discuss this subject and our mutual experiences talking to conspiracy theorists.

uummm... if Professors taught students "how to think" vs "how they should think" there wouldn't be any liberal college graduates. :)
