I have a BINGE & accidentally-ignore relationship with many of the podcasts I listen to. Thankfully iTunes doesn’t accidentally ignore podcasts in the same way I do. So when I remember to listen to a podcast, there are several episodes waiting for me! Yay!
This is exactly what happened this week with Ken Samples‘ podcast, Straight Thinking (iTunes). My forgetfulness is not meant to be seen as a shot against Straight Thinking at all. I may not always agree with Samples (or Reasons to Believe), but his systematic way of approaching theological and philosophical topics is great. Samples is a great teacher, and rarely am I left wondering what he meant by (insert complex topic here) or where he stands on (insert theological or philosophical topic here) and why.
Samples’ ability as a teacher is 50% of the reason I am recommending this podcast this week. The other 50% is because he has started a lengthy series on logic and critical thinking. I think it’ll be a great opportunity for those looking for a practical look at logic, reason and the proper use of your brain.
He is calling it “Logic 101”, and as of today (12/19/14) he has gone through 4 episodes.
Logic 101A: The Whats and Whys of Logical Thinking
Logic 101B: Thinking Logically about Conspiracy Theories
Logic 101C: Think It Through
Logic 101D: Enhancing Brain-Mind Power
Check it out!
Let me know what you think!

I’m always looking for new podcasts to binge-listen to.
