What is The Art of Deceit?
Whether you realize it or not, you are surrounded by things that are constantly trying to persuade you in some way. You’re bombarded by it in social media, news channels, the classroom, books and articles, and even in everyday conversations with your friends.
These are the situations that leave you with the feeling that something about that statement, report, or argument is wrong–but you just can’t put your finger on it.
The Art of Deceit focuses on recognizing deceit when it’s being used against you. This happens all the time, and it is part of why many people have an aversion to getting into debates on important issues. Why would you argue with someone when you don’t even understand why it’s so hard to refute what they say?
This podcast will inform and equip you to recognize when faulty logic and disinformation is being used, then identify the tactic so you can respond effectively. More importantly, it will show you how to work your way out of these situations and use proper reasoning to fight back.

Got a fallacy for me? Submit it here! I will be hosting Fallacy Power Hours on the podcast where I dissect fallacies and faulty arguments submitted to me and explain why they’re so hilariously wrong. Screenshots are welcome!
