s05e07 | Talking Therapies & Gender Identities, with Marcus and Susan Evans
01:24:25

Susan and Marcus Evans are seasoned psychotherapists who worked at the Tavistock Clinic in the UK. During their time there, the Gender Identity Development Services (GIDS) experienced a massive influx of referrals, and they both witnessed a startling switch in the psychotherapy profession from patient inquiry to "affirmative" chemical treatments, specifically when "gender" was involved, and out of keeping with the broader standards of care for other psychological treatments. In time, both of them were compelled to blow the whistle on this sea change, and have since written an in-depth, factually based book on Gender Dysphoria that aims to bring to light the complexity and humanity of this novel corner of human mental health.

s05e05 | Overcoming Autogynephilia, with Andrius
01:50:01

Beginning at puberty, Andrius was enthralled by a persistent desire to become a woman (otherwise known as "autogynephilia": the love of oneself as a woman). These feelings persisted and increased until his late 20's, where a series of spiritual, intellectual, and social events set him on a path of resolving his desires and bringing him into harmony with his male body and masculine identity.

s04e91 | From Transition to Liberation: A Detrans Male Story, with Torren Danowski
01:27:29

I spoke with Torren at the end of 2020 about his struggles with gender, black and white thinking, and Obsessive-Compulsive ideation. A couple weeks ago he reached out to me inquiring if I had heard of psychedelic therapies for these issues, and I only had heard anecdotes. He then shared his libertarian podcast with me and I was amazed at his change of attitude and new-found confidence, so I wanted to have him back on to speak about what he's been through over the last (nearly) two years, in which he founded Don't Tread On Philly in response to the draconian civil rights violations of Philadelphia's pandemic response, and is now running for mayor on the Libertarian ticked.

Alvin Lui is a first-generation Chinese American whose parents and grandparents fled Communist China. In one generation he went from dirt-poor to middle class, in large part due to the values he was taught.

s04e67 | Five Years Later: Catching Up With Bret Weinstein
01:21:51

Five years ago, on May 23rd, 2017, a group of students confronted Bret Weinstein outside his classroom at The Evergreen State College. Armed with a script and emails of his which the students believed proved him to be racist, the demanded he apologize and undo the harm he perpetuated by refusing to participate in the college's yearly "Day of Absence" event. Historically, students, staff, and faculty "of color" would meet off campus to speak about their experiences and share solidarity—in 2017, the program coordinators wanted to switch the day, and ask (or strongly encourage) students, staff, and faculty of minimal color to go off campus and meditate on their privilege and white supremacy. Bret took exception to this, and said as much in emails to the program coordinators.

The Evergreen students, with two weeks to go before the end of the school year, had been riled up by an alleged act of racism (which turned out to be fabricated or at least blown out of proportion), and planned a week long protest to demand that TESC, one of the most progressive and explicitly anti-racist colleges in the United States, purge itself of white supremacy. Bret Weinstein's class was their first stop, but over the next few days, with cellphones streaming, they proceeded to terrorize, hold hostage, and submit to struggle sessions all who met their path.

I was on campus at that time, and in the wake of the protests I exhumed and published internal documents and videos showing that The Evergreen State College teachers and administrators indoctrinated the students into such behavior (watch my full documentary at https://bit.ly/evergreenstory) This set me on the path to running this channel, and also sent Bret Weinstein into public intellectualism.

In this discussion, we speak about the intervening years.

s04e65 | Curtis Yarvin, on How American Power Operates, At Home & Abroad
01:52:49

Curtis Yarvin has been writing about the "deep right" for several years. Originally writing under the pseudonym Mencius Molbug, his ideas made waves for their apparent radicalness—notably, his assertion that the United States would be best served by electing a monarch, or Political CEO type figure, who has autocratic authority to clean up our government's entrenched and unaccountable bureaucracy. This idea is shocking to most Americans, but makes a lot of sense once you hear out his reasoning.

Doctor Gribble is a medical professional focusing on women and infants. She has recently with some colleagues written a paper on the need to preserve sex-based language in the medical context. We speak about that, breast feeding (kinda learned some things there!), and how the COVID response lacked understanding of the infant-mother relationship.

Special Episode: The Family Sex Show: A Dramatic Website Reading [Explicit Content]
00:41:17

"The Family Sex Show" is a production that was going to be toured through the UK. The content of the show included full nudity and curiously intimate discussions about sex targeted to minors. Internet backlash caused the production company to cancel it. I was attracted to the hoopla, took a look at their website, and found some quite disturbing material. The More You Know meets TMI.

Cynthia has experienced intense gender dysphoria since childhood—despite being a very feminine female. That, combined with abuse at the hands of her father, has caused her to deeply look into the source of her traumas and take control of her body, her life, and her sense of agency. Her message to troubled young people about realistic self-acceptance is not to be overlooked.

s04e56 | Facts & Fictions of the "TransKid" Phenomenon, with Denise of 4thWaveNow
01:26:11

Denise began researching and writing about the spread of transgenderism in 2015 when her teen daughter one day decided she was "trans," and wished to have surgery. Denise searched for information about teens suddenly identifying as the opposite sex, and found a dearth of information, so began 4thWaveNow to chronicle her findings. The trans phenomena has since gained major momentum, and last week the Biden administration declared full support—legal and executive—for the "affirmation only" model for children. Denise has something to say about that. This is her first public appearance.

s04e18 | Orthodoxy in Public Education, with Frank McCormick @CBHeresy
01:21:25

Frank McCormick (@CBHeresy) is a public high school history teacher in Chicago. He's been watching as the administration spends tens of thousands of dollars on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion training while the school suffers electrical problems, dire reading levels, and all manner of substance and emotional abuse among staff and students. Questioning the the DEI agenda has put his job at risk, but he believes that standing up for American values of hard work, competency, liberty, and civil identity is the most pressing matter to forestall the break down of the USA.

Alexandros is an entrepreneur practice solutions to design-based problems. He's also keen on making sense of the world, in order to optimize human life and ingenuity. Pulled into the controversy surrounding Bret Weinstein's questions of the COVID vaccine and alternatives thereto, Alexandros found a lack of substance in these critics' complains. So he has put together a crowdsource sort of fact checking mechanism which I think might give us clues to fielding the broadest amount of input and truth in a world overloaded with information and personality quirks.

A vocal advocate for Gender Identity, who has been working nationally and internationally, has decided to harass and bully Aaron for not toeing the line of an ideology that isn't based on facts, but rather internal feelings.

s03e98 | You Are Your Avatar (Identity in the Profile Age) | with Professor H. Georg Moeller
01:11:45

Professor Moeller teaches at Macau University in southern China. He has been publishing excellent philosophical videos on youtube, having to do with Identity as it is expressed currently and in the past. I find his model of explaining current social behavior quite helpful in better understanding how people are relating themselves in the digital era. In this interview we explore his concepts of Sincerity, Authenticity, and Profilicity—and their implications.

Garrett got swept up into gender ideology / queer theory while in college, which eventually lead him to physical transition, including the surgical removal of his testicles. These medical procedures were given to him with the bare minimum of doctor oversight or therapeutic inquiry. We speak about what lead him into and out of transition.

s03e85 | Liberating Women from Patriarchy, with Kara Dansky
01:13:00

One day I wrote an offhanded criticism of feminism on Twitter. I muted the tweet and went on about my business, then later realized it had gone marginally viral. Kara Dansky engaged me respectfully on the issue, but Twitter ran out of usefulness very quick, so we took our discussion long form. This episode explores the meaning of the proposition that Feminism is about Liberating Women from Patriarchy. Part two concerns the same question from the UK Feminist perspective, as voiced by Julie Bindel (stay tuned for that one!)

328 | Debunking the Gender Myth, with Stephanie Davies-Arai
01:46:35

Stephanie Davies-Arai (@cwknews) has been reporting on the "trans kids" phenomenon via her website transgendertrend.com since 2015. In this conversation, we trace the trajectory of this movement from the linguistic distinction between sex and gender, to the modification of children's bodies to conform to an incorporeal identity. We also cover her work testifying at the Kiera Bell hearing, which outcome, according to Stephanie, is a sea change in the ways in which we perceive and shape gender non-conforming children.

241 | Bret Weinstein: Three Years After the Protest
01:20:02

In the spring of 2017, two weeks before I was to graduate from The Evergreen State College, a series of protests erupted on campus, ostensibly regarding racial inequities. Students blockaded buildings, rounded up staff and faculty, verbally harassed anyone who disagreed or questioned their methods, took administration hostage, and went so far as to roam the campus with baseball bats, in an extracurricular attempt to "community police." The first individual they targeted was Evolutionary Biology Professor Bret Weinstein, who had been arguing against certain measures the college was taking to make anti-racism the central focus of collegiate life. And although the students never meant him to be the focus or their unrest, he publicly called out their actions, and became the lightning rod that grounded the events in terms of academic freedom, toxic progressivism, and what it meant, in 2017, to be or to not be a racist. In this episode, Bret and I discuss the lessons to be derived from this protest.

If you are interested in learning more, I have a 24 episode video series detailing these events, found here: http://bit.ly/31mddXS

We talk about the similarities between Mao’s movement and the radical strains of current progressivism, and speak about how to avoid repeating the worst parts of history.

Maritza Cummings is a detransitioned natal female who was a strong trans advocate in the early and mid 2000's within the medical field. Some years ago, she began doubting that transition was correct for her, but instead a way of avoiding other issues she was beset with, such as childhood trauma and some neurological hiccoughs. She is now detransitioned and is speaking out against the Gender Identity Industry on youtube and via blogging. She's a firebrand, and takes a very strong anti-transition position, but is concerned first and foremost for dialogue to occur around "affirmation-only" modes of treatment.
