Our club has started a radio show! The Owning Our Ignorance Show debuts on Tuesday at 9:00 a.m. on WDBK. Tune in to 91.5 FM if you live near Blackwood, New Jersey.
The first episode is on humility. Club members Destiny Byrd, Cal Engime, Rachel McDonnell Mojica, and Jordan Smart discuss the role that humility plays in effective reasoning.
We’ll post the episode here after it airs on the radio, along with links to subscribe to a podcast version of the show.
