On this week's podcast:

Agnosis is the neoclassical Greek word for ignorance. Agnotology describes the intentional production of ignorance.Professor Thomas Harrington, in "The Conscious Cultivation of Ignorance", talks about how politically and economically powerful groups fabricated ignorance under the banner of science. It’s a fascinating discussion in today’s conspiratorial environment.We also have some commentary on Russia and Ukraine.And, of course, the Mailroom.
