Let's Know Things

Let's Know Things is a show about putting current events into context. Rather than simply discussing the news, in each episode we use a news item as a starting point for a larger discussion about a particular industry, society, ourselves, and the world.

Today's episode isn't a standard show — instead I'll answer some questions, talk about how the show's been doing and where it's going, and discuss sponsorships and how they'll be integrated into the podcast.

Let's Know Things is produced and hosted by Colin Wright.

Today we talk about beliefs, the increased polarity of them in recent years, and some of the causes of that polarization. We'll discuss how this applies to politics, religion, and UFOs.

We'll also talk about the benefits of tribalism, how those benefits become liabilities under the wrong leader and on scale, and how to puncture the filter bubble.

Today's episode is about the seemingly ceaseless surge of the new against the ostensibly sturdy walls of the established.

We'll talk about the Ottoman Turks and Attila, Scotch whisky, sushi, and even touch for a moment on the publishing industry. But this larger discussion stems primarily from an article about basketball.

On today's episode, we talk about privilege in its many different shapes and forms and contexts.

We'll also dive into the benefits of being aware of one's privilege: for society, and for oneself.

On this episode, we'll start with a discussion about ego depletion, segue into a rivalry between a tech billionaire and the online news behemoth who outed him, and then pull Hulk Hogan into the mix.

From there, we'll pivot to a conversation about actions and consequences, internet neutrality, political sightedness, and the gulf between here and where we could be.
