Take a look at our programs and let us know how we can help. If you're interested in our goals, let us know and we'll help you get started. Everyone is welcome to get involved.
Hodgson Whitlock Group Ltd. is a multidisciplinary team of innovators and problem solvers who work at the intersection of science and business to provide a suite of services and advice in areas ranging from intellectual property strategy to business planning and research collaborations.
HWG focuses on mutual benefit and finds novel ways to bring evidence-based decision-making to areas which have no blueprint or precedent to start with.
The Why Show is a free podcast focused on critical thinking. Any topic is fair game, but we tend to focus on political and moral philosophy in the real world. We tried to set an example of how to approach an issue without bias or emotion getting in the way of good analysis.
Hosts Brayden Whitlock and Matt Hodgson released a show once a week until Summer of 2017, and will release special issues as necessary in the future. For inquires or suggestions, of if you have something to say on the air, contact the show.

Paragon News is a new way to stay informed. This truth service brings together reports from a diverse range of perspectives, biases, sources and media and provides subscribers with the most accurate summary of what is happening in their world.
