This is an audio clip from Sober Podcast #247 sent to sober podcast members.
Now that we know that the alcohol industry has been funding some of the booze-related research, it just makes me wonder about studies and research in general.
and how most of us (me included) aren't able to determine whether a news article that claims to be based on a study, is actually fact, if it's been skewed, who paid for it, and what is the underlying agenda of the news media writer, or the original researcher.
in this audio, i start off ranting about booze research, and then I think that before i get myself into too much trouble, i will share some of my own biases, thought process, and numbers. how many people had i been penpals with before it was a paid thing? how many people did i interact with, see patterns, offer cheerleading to, before i started talking about what i saw? listen to this and find out.
see if there's something in here that rings true to you. other than the visual of me standing on my balcony with cold feet, wearing my pyjama bottoms and sweater, holding a clip-on microphone to my mouth. I also tell you about the little girl with the yellow raincoat that I see from the window.
