Episode 1: David Dylan Thomas on Design For Civil Discourse

August 31st, 2020

David Dylan Thomas is a Content Strategy Advocate at ThinkCompany in Philadelphia and the host of the Cognitive Bias Podcast. In this podcast we talk about how the phrasing of questions influences answers, the ways design influences discourse, and how capitalism is ruining everything.

"You have in your head, oh, I will get more clicks if people are angry, right? But people are yelling at each other on my platform, so it isn't necessarily true, right? There's all sorts of science around, like, what motivates people to share content, and anger does it but then so does wonder and hope."
