    What does it mean to be certain?
    Which comes first: judgement or reason?
    What is the difference between our differences dividing us or empowering us?
    And what does any of this have to do with riding an elephant?


    This week Nick & Brett explore the concept of certainty, as it exist in everything from our political climate, to our businesses, to our communities. And through the research of neuroliogist Dr Robert Burton, the insights of professor Jonathan Heidt, the experience of designer Mark Busse, and the unique perspective of writer Dan Harmon, they discover that self awareness, humility, and empathy may hold some of the keys to us gaining control of this wild beast called Certainty.

    Plus WTSdigs, a bunch of random clips, and a sound effect or three.
