    Here Be Dragons: An Introduction to Critical Thinking

    Here Be Dragons is a free 40 minute video introduction to critical thinking. It is suitable for general audiences and is licensed for free distribution and public display.

    Here Be Dragons is written and presented by Brian Dunning, host and producer of the Skeptoid podcast and author of Skeptoid: Critical Analysis of Pop Phenomena, and Executive Producer of The Skeptologists.

    You can watch it online or download the file directly from the site linked above. You can also be nice and contribute some of your own bandwidth to helping the video spread by grabbing the torrent file from The Pirate Bay.

Need labels and jacket inserts designs… I have a small stack of DVD clamshells that I’ll just be throwing out or giving away anyhow, so maybe they can be put to good use saving Grandmas from charlatans.
