In this episode Beth and Elizabeth talk with special guest Nick Byrd, from Florida State University (https://byrdnick.com/) about reasoning, and how it effects fake news. We also review what is happening in academia with open access journals (and find out what is an open access journal), we review a Blaze article that delights in a recent hoax that they claim duped a peer-reviewed academic journal... but was the journal duped? Or has the journal been duping us? Take a listen to find out. Also included: A Snopes go fund me campaign is discussed, and Elizabeth's taste in music is pondered.
