What was your path to skepticism?

Hard to say, I suppose. I have a kick-ass advisor who has been tremendously helpful to my intellectual development, but I suppose it started with my father (physicist).

What is the best day and time for you to meet?

I suppose evenings and weekends are best. If you twist my arm, I'll say Sat at 2PM. Please don't twist my arm.

Are you alarmed by the state of scientific knowledge among the general population in America?

I'm much more concerned about people's ability to reason. Knowledge is never certain and is in flux in the best case scenario. We can't hang on to ideas, but we can learn and hang on to the process that allows us to eschew incorrect ideas.

Are there issues or topics you'd especially like to discuss?

Correlation and causation would be sure to stir the pot, particularly if there are statisticians present. I'll hold the handle.

Introduction

Hey I'm Ché. I'm a lab manager at U of Chicago. You guys seem fun and sassy.
