"Making rationality more accessible."
Sounds great, and I've thought about this too. But what does it look like?
- Seminar series. Probably in the workplace - this would not be so scalable but for me would be highly targeted.
- Video lectures. Costly, probably get wide reach though. Maybe better done in short form, slick and well marketed.
- Podcast. IMHO hard to beat Rationally Speaking. However, this content should be more introductory so perhaps more of an audio series than a podcast.
How to assess what the main topics should be though? I feel the pedagogy for rationality is lacking, because for many people who are interested they picked up the basics by osmosis before getting into it in a more organised way. I.e. what is the first thing someone should learn, the second etc. For me, everything revolves around an understanding of probability - but that's a long and somewhat indirect road to walk.
