Greg Carlwood has become a talent scout for conspiracy theories |330| by Alex Tsakiris | Oct 18 | Skepticism Greg Carlwood of The Higherside Chats on the difference between conspiracy data and interpretation. photo by: Skeptiko On this episode of Skeptiko, I’m joined by Greg Carlwood to talk about his podcast, The Higherside Chats: Greg Carlwood:…I consider myself a conspiracy talent scout. I scout out the researchers and I’m like, “This guy, he makes a good case for his position,” let’s have them do their thing and help walk them through their own research, because it’s often very dense… it takes a lot of framing to be like, “This is where we’re going to go today. We’re getting off on this level of the elevator today.” … one aspect that’s important to me is separating data from interpretation. I know you talk about a lot of data here; that line is something Gordon [White] has just drilled into my head… when you’re listening to a guy talk for two hours about [his] research, you have to be able to say, “Where was the research and where was the spin you put on it?” Because you can look at the same data and come to different conclusions, so it is important to separate data from conclusion.
