Episode 20: Authenticity in Communication—Music, Lex Land, Headlines, Censorship, and Education

The theme of this episode is authenticity in communication. I drop the good news that Lex Land has agreed to join WitGlass Unfiltered for an interview, coming up hopefully some time in June. I am still working out details. From there, I move to headlines about censorship and Trump, and I address the important topics of slander, libel, and defamation—more generally considered as honest representation of information. Finally, I move into education, and I offer two fundamental principles of education that connect to the concept of honest representation of information, focusing on the exchange of information between teacher and student.

Apps and Services

The apps and services listed here are the ones that I actually use in developing and maintaining the website and podcast. If you see it listed here, I love it. I don’t keep using any app or service I don’t love. Every app and every service has limitations—some more annoying or frustrating than others. But if it’s on this list, you can be sure that on the whole, I love it.
