In 2020, things have been challenging! There are constant arguments on social media like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and all the social sites that you can find on the internet!

In this Part 1 (of 2) of the episode, I have one of my favorite writers, and I have read countless of his book, multiple times, Steven Pinker, cognitive psychologist, linguist, and popular science author, on to talk about this new book, Rationality: What It Is, Why It Seems Scarce, Why It Matters. We talked about what is his definition of Rational, and to see if one is rational or irrational?
