The Purple Evolution
Episode 19: Confirmation Bias
Show Notes

Facts are facts.  Or are they? Where DO we get our facts from and do we sabotage ourselves by only receiving information from outlets that will support our theories? We may say that confirmation bias is “other people’s” problem but do we go out of our way to listen to viewpoints that conflict with our own? If we won’t listen to the viewpoints of our adversaries, how can we expect them to listen to ours?  Is this causing more friction than necessary in America’s political arena?  How about in our local community?  Our dinner table?  Armand and Doug explore different ways to achieve more powerful results from hard-to-have conversations and perhaps some motivation towards why it matters in the first place.
