In the first part of our Bearded Vegans Starter Guide, we take a look back on Episode 96 – How Do We Combat The Backfire Effect? This is a phenomenon that nearly all vegans have likely experienced in which in face of presenting irrefutable evidence in a discussion, the other person not only remains unconvinced but actually because even more entrenched in their false belief. We’ll discuss what’s the deal with our brains not accepting new information, look over the available research and then try to suss out how we can possibly combat the backfire effect, or perhaps even use it to our advantage.
This is the first part in our Starter Guide in which we attempt to make it a little easier to break into our 200+ episodes with a few suggestions of episodes that don’t require much prior knowledge and also exemplify the types of conversations one will find throughout our catalog.
