My goal is to help non-rationalists become rationalists, and provide exercises for existing rationalists to hone their skills, in the form of audio/video episodes.
‘Rationally Speaking’ and ‘The Bayesian Conspiracy’ are lovely, but they don’t serve the function I have in mind.
Since I am an amature rationalist, and possibly the least intelligent person in this community, it would be ideal for someone else to run this (preferrably CFAR themselves, or at least someone who has attended). If there is an existing project like this, please point me to it so I can support it. If not, I at least have the drive to get the ball rolling.
I would probably start by using the ‘Hammertime’ sequence as material, and breaking it down a bit so the average layperson can understand it easier. This would require very little knowledge on my part, and give me time to maybe find a replacement host, cohost, or a queue of interviewees to assist in future episodes.
My question: is there any feedback you can give on this idea?
