#29 Cognitive Dissonance

COGNITIVE DISSONANCE is justifying why I’ve made the choices I have. Explaining away any doubt, when I don’t even fully believe myself. This explanation is a radically over simplified and I got into much more detail in this podcast. I draw on parallels, using examples from the not too distant political past and doomsday cults.

We are aware of many of our biases but we still fall into traps.

I hope you enjoy this podcast.


This podcast was recorded as a series of lectures given to people in 12 step addiction recovery treatment. The purpose of these talks was to teach and motivate individuals to search for their own spiritual solution to their addiction.
