Episode 54 - Cailin O'Connor

On Episode 54, Nick chats with Cailin O’Connor, Associate Professor in the Department of Logic and Philosophy of Science at the University of California, Irvine, about transitioning from studying Film and Environmental Studies at Harvard and a career in the arts to studying philosophy of science, the relevance of game theory to biology, the sciences, and to resolving old philosophical problems, and her new book, “The Misinformation Age” and how social factors, not individual psychology, are what’s essential to understanding the persistence of false belief.
