Practicing real science in the lab helps make you a clear thinker.
Podcast Transcript: “Something really interesting happened to me recently when I went on the Alex Jones Show. For the first time in four years, a lot of the Alex Jones listeners who had known of me from four years ago – because I substitute hosted for Alex a few times back in 2013 – they had heard my shows back then. Then they heard me now this year in 2018 and the comments from those people was, ‘Wow, you actually sound totally different, you sound way more technical, and scientific, what you were saying just makes instant sense and so on…’ This is some of the comments from people who watch the show. Even Alex told me, he said, ‘You know what. There’s something very different about your delivery from four years ago. It’s like you’re more determined, but also way more technically informed.’ The only reason I’m sharing this with you is because I’ve had a little bit of introspection about this. I believe it’s because of all the science training. The science training is actually good training for critical thinking. When we’re problem-solving in the laboratory – like I was doing today (I’ll tell you about the problem we’re solving today in a minute here) – when you’re problem solving, you have to exercise and practice very in-depth critical thinking skills and problem solving skills. In the science lab, everything is based on the evidence, the facts and the data that the instruments are showing you, but that data can be very, very difficult to interpret -based on what’s going on. But the more you practice communicating about science issues, I believe the more it makes you really a clear thinker and a more clear of a communicator…” Listen to the full podcast below:
