How Can Skeptics Communicate Better (with Non-Skeptics)?

A session at SkeptiCamp Chicago 2014

Saturday 5th April, 2014

1:00pm to 1:00pm (CST)

This talk will be a series of anecdotes (gasp!) and advice based on my experiences on how to (and how NOT to) communicate with non-skeptics. Some come from interactions with my students and family, while others occurred in the digital wilderness of the Internet. Hopefully, you will be able to walk away with some tips on how to have a more productive conversation with that crazy uncle of yours the next time you see him.
