Sarah Greenidge is the Founder of WellSpoken, an organisation that’s trying to change the world, specifically everyone who is telling you how to live for maximum wellness on the basis of dodgy, anecdotal or non-existent data. We spoke about race, nepotism and how to change people’s minds bit by bit.

Notes:

  • I was amused at how the conversation accelerated suddenly from (if I remember right) a very specific example of evidence based medicine, to a larger discussion of epistemology, righteousness, and communication; and then never came back to the specific example.
  • I think the discussion was a little too much confirmation bias for me. It made me comfortable, which makes me uncomfortable.
  • One thing about Tea With Alice is that you learn very little new, but the conversations reinforce a lot of things and centre them in your mind.
