James Lindsay first came to national attention after he and his colleagues published a series of hoax papers in social science journals to demonstrate their loose academic standards. Lindsay used to be a liberal, but recognizes the very real threat ideologies like critical race theory represent for America and became more conservative.

"My position though, even when I did identify on the left in the past, has always been, 'I'm going to hold the beliefs that I believe are the most accurate and where I fall is where I fall.'" Lindsay explains, before adding he's "Team Reality."

Lindsay joins the show to discuss how he moved from being a liberal to a conservative, and how we can help convince reasonable liberals in our lives about the danger of philosophies like critical race theory.
