On this show we tackle an article written by PZ Myers about The 2016 Paradigm Symposium. In it PZ unfairly attacks both Laird Scranton and Peter Robbins. We address this, as well as attacks on Brien Foerster, David Paulides, etc. This is a re-done version of a podcast we recorded a month or so ago, but deleted due to some factual errors that I myself, Seriah, had continued unknowingly. This is that basic talk, with new material based on the PZ Myers article. We also discuss how the media arrives at facts, and just general ways people dismiss marginal subjects like the Paranormal.

New approaches are needed if we are ever to make any progress at all in understanding what we are interacting with. Some of that comes from understanding ourselves, and some of that comes from having a truly open mind in confronting those things that defy explanation. We need new eyes, perspectives, and better questions. That is the goal of Where Did the Road Go? To go places that have not been tread before, and explore new things from new angles. To leave the well worn road, and wander...
