How we see the world is not how the the world really is. But our perceptions have a pesky way of controlling our behaviour anyway. If you're colourblind, like Chris, you may not realize how much what you can't see affects your everyday interactions. If, like Isaiah, you insist on saying "daltonien" instead of "colourblind" (because you just found out that's how they say it in French and you "just think it's cooler,") you may not be fully aware of the distancing effects of your deep-rooted pretension. Our personal defaults are never truly "neutral". But even if we try to account for pre-existing bias, can we ever know for sure if that inscrutable opera director REALLY thinks we're ne'er-do-wells? And is it worse to always suspect disdain than it would be to hear it spelled out? [See: Schrödinger's Critique] Finally, in honour of Overthought's silver jubilee (25 episodes!) - and to cut down on constant mid-show disclaiming -we've implemented a content-flexible pre-show disclaimer: an ever-expanding compendium of the quirks, fallacies, and acts of self-effacement our listeners have come to expect and/or tolerate. It promises to eventually cannibalize the entire hour. Please enjoy.
