The Foot Nerd Tribe is built on a foundation of collective sensemaking.

We leverage the combined energy of a group of people to make sense of our confusing world using the principles of critical thinking and the scientific method.

TaskForces are special teams recruited from the Nerd Tribe on a mission to deliver a public service. To research and apply principles of rigorous journalism to investigating complex and confusing topics related to health. 

Research is funded by the Foot Nerd program and we also accept public donations in order to expand the budget and recruit a larger team that can increase their time allocation.

Deliverable: 2500 word article & 90 minute podcast which includes a full financial report on where all donations were allocated.

We look forward to being of service and thank everyone who donates for being part of the collective effort to discover the truth
