My interview with Liz Jackson where among other things I learn not to record with Skype (the recording quality for Skype turned out to be horrid).

Liz Jackon's Critical Thinking Series: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLAVhJKYeHG-UocVV08b0R5BnU1c_e8cYp

Some of Liz Jackson's book recommendations:
— "Thinking, Fast and Slow" by Daniel Kahneman
— "The Power of Critical Thinking" by Lewis Vaughn
— "Classical Logic and Its Rabbit-Holes" by Nelson P. Lande
— "Logic for Philosophy" by Theodore Sider [Note: this is advanced stuff!]
