In each LFT episode, Bob Capper, Heather Rose, and RFR's Logic Lady explore an informal logical fallacy that people (including us) tend to fall into. We demonstrate the fallacy and explain how it may distort the truth or prevent honest debate.

  • Unreal Mixtape
  • "Unsung" Pennsylvania transplant and lifelong musician Jason Hoffheins creates a playlist of music that more people should it "talent deserving wider recognition".

Thoughtfully curated, with anecdotes and info thrown in for good measure.
