CAS 075: That Journal Hoax Was, like, Soooooo kol! lol! (w/ James Lindsay)

In this episode, we sit down with longtime friend of the show and record-breaking guest James A. Lindsay. We discuss his recent Sokol style hoax in collaboration with James Lindsay on the journal Cogent Social Sciences, and the controversial aftermath. What is wrong with pay-to-play journals? How is social justice furthering itself into an identity politics rabbit hole, and causing the right to act in kind? Find out the answers to these and many other questions in this week’s episode. Do you have a burning hoax you’d like to play on us?
