In this episode Bob and Julia discuss a variety of critical thinking mini-topics, including the skill of being able to identify and distinguish different kinds of claims (descriptive vs. normative and claims that are conclusions of arguments) and emphasize the power of using this skill in this age of information pollution. They also explore the difference between opinions and beliefs, the relation of skepticism to critical thinking and what is meant by the "Skeptic's Sniff Test".
