Ep 7 You Don’t Look Like an Atheist; Terrible Charter Schools

A Dude and A Brit

After a long break, Freddie and TJ discuss what not to say to an atheist, the logical fallacy “anonymous authority,” and failing charter schools in the D.C. area.

Agenda:

  • Quote- “nothing succeeds like success”
  • British word of the week- overuse/misuse of the word “literally”
  • Logical fallacy- Anonymous Authority
  • TJ’s Famous Atheist Homework- Lawrence Krauss
  • Main Topic- Charter Schools

NOTE- this episode was recorded three weeks before the Lawrence Krauss sexual allegations hit the news. Interesting timing.
