Ep. 133: Calling Bullsh*t: Fighting Disinformation in the Trump Era

This week, we revisit our conversation with the head of University of Washington’s new Center for an Informed Public, Jevin West, who’s best known for his course, “Calling Bullsh*t,” a class that teaches students how to, among other things, discern and dispatch with disinformation. West says that in many instances, there’s a moral imperative for calling out BS when you see it.
