So, I Was Thinking is a podcast where we challenge your brain to think... and then to think some more! This cast is meant to be a conversation, a discussion, a debate, a learning experience and an exercise of the mind. Some topics we cover might be uncomfortable or hard to hear. None of our co-hosts or guests claim to be experts on the topics that we discuss. At times, we will poke and play devils advocate for the sake of conversation and to explore various viewpoints that may even differ from our own. It is never our intent to cause harm or be insensitive about the subject matter. Our goal is simply to open up meaningful dialogue without the restrictions that often come along with controversial topics.
