SIO49: The Pro-Truth Pledge, with Dr. Gleb Tsipursky

Joining me this week for interview Monday is Dr. Gleb Tsipursky! Gleb is an expert in decision sciences, focusing on politics and business. In the wake of the 2016 election, Gleb has decided to focus on fighting against fake news and misinformation in our politics. That’s why he has created the Truth Pledge, which he tells us all about in the interview.

Make sure you take the Pro-Truth Pledge!
