I’m delighted to interview Mick West, founder of Metabunk.orgContrailscience.com, I first heard of Mick on the Joe Rogan Podcast. Micks’s first claim to fame was as a video game developer, one of the founders of the studio that made the “Tony Hawk Pro Skater” series.   We talk about how we got his start debunking, conspiracy theories, contrails, vaccines and how listeners can get involved in promoting scientific and rational viewpoints. The highlight is his book  Escaping the Rabbit Hole which is a manual for adopting West’s style of engagement.
 
As he tells his own story in the book, even then he was interested in the irrational ideas people spread around the office and online; cashing in his stock options let him take up his “hobby of debunking more seriously.
