    Thinking, Fast and Slow would be a great name for your mind, if it were a professional wrestling duo in the ‘80s. It is also the title of a 2011 best selling book by psychologist Daniel Kahneman which analyzes the dichotomy between two modes of thought – Intuition (System 1) and Reasoning (System 2).

    This week we use the Internet as a springboard to start a conversation about how quickly we can jump to conclusions - both online and offline. We dig into our cognitive biases, which can often lead us astray in the art of decision-making, and we make note of the need to surround ourselves with people who can help us check and balance all of this.

    Along the way we get a splash of Anchorman, a hat tip to early 90s SNL, and hear wise insights from Daniel Kahneman himself. We close by having a “dinner conversation” with author, entrepreneur, and traveller, Bassam Terazi -- who brings it all home.
