About The Candid Badger

What is Candid Badger About?

A long time ago, a friend of mine was trying to come up with a clever name for his business.  Someone suggested Angry Badger and that name has stuck with me since.

I like the concept of “badgerness”– it’s persistent, it’s feisty. However, when it came time to name this site, “angry” wasn’t the right feel (plus someone wants $29,000 for the .com!).  Many hours were spent throwing adjectives in front of and behind “badger.”  Many friends liked the idea of a savvy badger, but, alas, that was taken, too.  Eventually, “candid” managed to stick.

So, what is a “Candid Badger”?  Well, he can be lots of things.  He can even be a she.  Mainly, it is the idea that through truthful and persistent conversation we can arrive at something reasonably close to the truth.

The writers at candidbadger.com may not always agree with you, but they have committed to providing stories, thoughts, and opinions without false pretenses.  Yes, you may find hyperbole and foreshadowing, but if you read it here, it’s what they believe to be true.   That said, all opinions expressed on this site are solely those of the author who wrote them.  So, if you don’t like it, take it up with them.

We hope you enjoy your time here.  It is an odd mish-mash of stuff, but hopefully, there is something here for everyone.

Our Thanks goes out to some people who made putting this site together a lot easier.
