Why Smart People Believe Stupid Things (with Michael Shermer)

Every day, we see intelligent people embracing unintelligent things. They're skeptical in some areas of their lives, gullible in others. They seem to shift from logical to illogical at the drop of a hat.

Maybe this refers to another. Perhaps it describes ourselves.

In this conversation, Seth Andrews speaks with Dr. Michael Shermer of Skeptic Magazine about belief, intelligence, religion, conspiracy theories, and the brain.

This interview is part of a larger radio podcast, which includes listener-submitted content and host commentary: https://youtu.be/bj9_F0B8L6Q
