Write With Courage!

In less time than your commute takes we bring you a dose of danger from today's exciting writers including Scott Adams, Peter Hitchens and Nick Cohen. “An idea that is not dangerous is unworthy of being called an idea at all.” Oscar Wilde. Your host Thor, mines for stories of previous failures, useable writing tips, and discovers how they got published to begin with! We bring the sort of Libertarian conversation, which happens when you are willing to listen and debate with writers of all political or religious persuasions and none. Might you be a writer with courage?

Our guest today is @gregstevens Greg Stevens. Greg formerly taught at UCLA and is now a research scientist - a Data Modeling & Analytics Specialist to be precise. Greg still writes on science topics for Second Nexus and The Daily Dot. His writing has also appeared in Salon.Com, Inside, The Week, The Good Men Project, and Real Clear Technology. Greg also blogs about science, philosophy, politics, religion, history, culture and fitness at www.gregstevens.com 

"The fact that you can come up with an intelligent argument for your position is not by itself evidence for that position. You need to ask yourself, can I come up with a really smart argument for the other side as well. And that is what you need to argue against!" 

He recommends we all read 'Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid' by Douglas Hofstadter.
