Something we learned this week.

"Education consists mainly of what we have unlearned." --Mark Twain

I loved this episode because of how they debunked miracles, fate, and lucky streaks, pointing out how humans cherry pick the details that confirm their beliefs and ignore those that don't. Well worth spending an hour listening if you can.
