On this episode, we were joined by Dr. Sara Gorman, author of the book Denying to the Grave: Why We Ignore the Facts That Will Save Us and Co-Founder of Critica, a community committed to making rational decisions about health and security. The team at Ology sought to understand why, despite evidence and the progress the field of medicine has made over the last few centuries, many people still have distrust in medicine and science.
Walls have been built around the world for the last millennia for many reasons. Some of those reasons include to keep people from coming in, keep people from leaving, to mark boundaries and for military purposes. In Hungary, the country has experienced thousands of migrants from Syria. Then in the U.S., of course, the hot political debate is around the border between it and Mexico. It appears that for every argument against the border wall, there’s also an argument for having them. On today’s episode, we take a step back and look at what folks at both sides of the argument are saying about building, or dismantling, walls that divide us from our neighbors.
