unlistenable pseudo intellectual lip smacking pedantry. God save us if this represents the intellectual dark web.


 Jan 4, 2022
Critical thinkers with independent minds and very knowledgeable. Therefore increasingly hated by the ideological virtue-signaling comformists who run most of academia and the media.

A jewel in the intellectual wasteland. I am refreshed by their collective. common sense and intelligence (a rare combination).

Description

On The DarkHorse Podcast, we will explore questions that matter, with tools that work. Weekly episodes of "The Evolutionary Lens" are co-hosted with Heather Heying, in which we use an evolutionary toolkit to reveal patterns in nature--including human nature. Other episodes will feature Bret hosting long form discussions. Some guests will be well known, others obscure, but all of them are chosen because they have demonstrated unusual insight. The state and future of civilization will be a recurring theme, so buckle up!

Episode Date
#143 What Did They Know & When Did They Know It? (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
6229

In this 143rd in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

This week, we discuss how some stories diagnose a system: What does it mean when a college declares its (non-racist) professors racist? What does it mean when journalists only recognize election fraud if it works against their team? What does it mean when “science” is invoked only to support foregone conclusions? Discussing these and more examples from the last two and a half years of Covid, we talk about the need for functional journalism, science, higher ed, and government, and of “skepticism kill switches.” How do you get people to stop being skeptical? Tell them that asking questions renders them a racist, a murderer, or a TERF.

#142 Constitutional Myopia (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
6842

In this 142nd in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

This week, we discuss how Chile’s newly proposed, and newly rejected, Constitution. Science journals and the media want us to believe that it’s super-sciencey, but a read of the actual document suggests otherwise. We also discuss affirmative action among STEM faculty, and also, why myopia is increasing, and what can be done about it. Hyper-novelty strikes again.

Are We Living in a Dark Age? Bret Speaks with Steve Patterson
10552

Bret Speaks with Steve Patterson on the subject of today’s world and what we face as time progresses. Some of us have begun to wonder, given the vast array of unscientific beliefs that recently echoed across civilization, are we entering a cryptic dark age? Might we be living in one already? Steve Patterson, a philosopher and independent researcher, has reached an even more unsettling conclusion. Despite the remarkable pace of technological progress, we have lived our entire lives in the scientific dark.

#139 Science Surrenders (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
6034

In this 139th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

This week, we discuss whether reality is going to be tolerated—by internet randos, by magazines supposedly devoted to disseminating scientific findings to an interested public, and by actual scientific journals. A new editorial in Nature Human Behavior is breath-taking in its rejection of the scientific process and values, and, therefore, of reality. Then: what anti-scientific buffoonery is behind not allowing unvaccinated-against-Covid Novak Dvokovic, argued by some to be the best tennis player ever, to compete in the U.S. Open? And: what is the New York Times up to?

#138 Thou Shalt Follow the Science (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
5425

In this 138th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

 

This week, we discuss what fatwas and cancel culture have in common. Why are we allowing zealots to decide what we can say and do by fiat? The circuitry of religion has an ancient history (even when it goes off the rails, as in the attack on Salman Rushdie); it is being hijacked by a secular cult. This new cult is targeting apostates, and heretics. The new cult does not admit when it is wrong—the CDC simply puts out new guidelines that recommend treating vaccinated and unvaccinated people as equivalent. The new cult sneaks in ideology when you’re not looking. The new cult is anti-science, anti-reality, and anti-democracy.

#137 Hostile Work Environments & Folks Who Love Them (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
7265

In this 137th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

This week, we discuss Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in the academy, and ask: does DEI belong in science? If the answer is no, are we contributing to a hostile or alienating workplace? We argue that it is the DEI enthusiasts who are creating hostile and alienating spaces for all of the rest of us. Then: laboratory of the self, and some hypotheses about pain perception, illness, and pathogens. Finally: land sharks. Who are they, what do they want, and how do they get where they’re going?

#136 Sex, Lies, and Prison Escape (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
5448

In this 136th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

This week, we discuss the tragic tale of a woman who became a murderer….or actually, we discuss a murderer who claims to have become a woman. We talk about the order to close Tavistock, the gender identity clinic in England, and whether “affirmative care” for children who declare themselves trans may soon be a thing of the past. We discuss Wikipedia, which was once the Universe’s best encyclopedia, and how far it has fallen. We discuss definitions, including the definition of “recession.” And we discuss the drinking age for young adults.

In this 135th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

 

This week, we discuss how, with regard to Covid, natural immunity compares to vaccine-induced immunity. Is the omicron variant unique in this regard? What science has been done to address the question? When is it acceptable to cite a preprint, and when must you absolutely, positively rely solely on peer-reviewed literature? What did the world do to deserve wrestling with this virus into an unspecified future? Are the Attorneys General of Missouri and Louisiana on to something? Political violence in this country is being pursued by the January 6 committee—but how much of it is being included? And: is peer review value added, or value subtracted? Also: how alarmist are glaciers?

In this 134th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

 

This week, we discuss Howard Zinn, scones, and the existence of God. We discuss accidents and injury, and Bret proposes a hypothesis for why his recent bicycle accident happened. We discuss memory, frame rate, electric unicycles, and motorcycles. We discuss the moon: the full moon, tidal locking, Oliver Sacks, viewing the Earth from outside of itself, and Apollo 11, which launched 53 years today, and would result, a few days later, in humanity’s first moon landing. We discuss isopropyl alcohol: it is not only a wonderful antiseptic, disinfectant, and cleanser, but also, apparently, an effective stunner of flies.

#133 Corruption, Efficacy, and the Rise of the Trad-Vaxxers (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
6333

In this 133rd in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

 

This week, we discuss the surge of Covid cases during the northern Summer. We talk about a new paper which finds that the mRNA vaccines against Covid do more harm than good, and the fact that both Canada, and the state of Washington, are implementing new vaccine mandates now, despite ever growing evidence that the Covid vaccines are not doing what we were told they would do. We ask whether Elmo knows what he’s talking about when he advocates for young muppets everywhere to get vaccinated. And Heather talks to an anti-vaxxer who turns out not to be an anti-vaxxer at all; she is a trad-vaxxer.  Then we discuss Jordan Peterson’s twitter suspension, and what “deadnaming” means, and whether it’s a real thing. Finally: what is the value of work?

#132: 50 States not in a Roe (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
5384

In this 132nd in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

 

This week, we discuss the overturning of Roe v. Wade, and how both individuals and political entities on both “sides” are responding to it. We discuss the implications of whether other organisms might use abortifacients, and how fuzzy categories are revealed with the discovery of a giant bacterium. We discuss whether twitter is sanctioning violence, while saying that they are doing the opposite. And we discuss the recent reveal that the CDC, despite seeming to claim the opposite for well over a year now, is now acknowledging that they have not been analyzing adverse events from the Covid vaccines.

In this 131st in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

 

This week, we discuss why so many things, in modernity, and right now in particular, are labeled the opposite of what they truly are. What we are told is safe, is toxic; we are told we must do, we should not. How did this happen? Beginning with a tale of scientific discovery in the 1990s and early 2000s—involving telomeres and cancer and senescence and mice—we arrive at one answer: if the powers-that-be have insight, they are better served by keeping that insight to themselves, by refusing to share it. And so: all the newspapers, all the universities, all the everything, are failing. We also discuss baby formula—why you might want or need it, and share a recipe from a naturopath that will be far better than anything you can (or cannot) find on the shelves. And we discuss fathers: genetic fatherhood, biological fatherhood, cultural fatherhood. There are many ways to be a good father.

#130: Coerced Consensus (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
5588

In this 130th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

 

This week, we discuss the state of Portland, Oregon, two years after protests and riots made a mess of the city. Still found on the streets: entreaties to abolish the police, and protect “black trans sex workers,” and to attend a pride brunch that is actually a “drag queen brunch.” And yet when you talk to people, you almost invariably find that the veneer on the surface is not what it seems. Few people seem to agree with the coerced consensus: that letting people camp and shoot up and defecate on sidewalks is being compassionate to them; or that men can become women. We discuss whether a minority’s self-declared rights should be allowed to infringe on already established rights of others. And we discuss the self-assembly of rackets to fill niches—such as Covid testing centers that are both lucrative for those running them, and mandatory to participate in activities like international travel, and camp.

In this 129th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

 

This week, we discuss whether we might be in a dark age—an era in which “all of our structures of knowledge are plagued by errors, at all levels, from the trivial to the profound, periphery to the fundamental” (from Patterson essay, linked below). We discuss the failure of academia at all levels, including the fact that specialization has fractured knowledge, the processes of academia have been conflated with the processes of scientific investigation, and the corrupting influences of both governmental and private funding are nearly ubiquitous. We attest that those most enthusiastic about widespread adoption of novel medical technologies should be particularly interested in making sure that those who are injured by such technologies are recognized, and helped. And we discuss what a woman is, and why the very question—and the remarkable number of forms that answers take—points to the epidemic of sophistry that we have discussed before.

#128 Life, Death, and Meaning (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
6044

 

In this 128th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

 

This week, we discuss Viktor Frankl’s Man’s Search for Meaning: What is it to be human, how much responsibility to we have for finding our own way, and how can we find hope, and meaning, even at the worst of times? Then: people have a moral obligation to grapple with the downstream effects of their own arguments, from medical claims to cries to defund and vilify the police. In the wake of yet another mass shooting at a school, what is the state of the 2nd Amendment? What is the interface of modern politics with homelessness, addiction, mental illness, and crime? And what is happening in the governor’s race in California?

In this 127th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

 

This week, we discuss observations from recent travels—how the world looks as it emerges from 2+ years of restrictions and lockdowns, and what it feels like to have conversations across both significant differences, and shared points of view. From Santa Barbara to Washington D.C. to Bath and London, we talk faith, BlackLivesMatter and AllLivesMatter, rocketry, SCOTUS, national museums, Covid dissidents, the vaccine injured, pathology, predictions, and more.

#126 Out of Controls (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
6733

In this 126th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

 

This week, we discuss science, Covid, vaccines, sunlight, and sophistry. New research suggests that adenovirus-vectored vaccines (e.g. J&J, AstraZeneca) reduce all-cause mortality, but that mRNA vaccines (e.g. Pfizer, Moderna) do not. What are the implications of this? What kinds of vaccines are recommended and effective, and how can someone not trained in thinking about these things know? We also discuss the role of vitamin D in Covid outcomes, as well as NIR (Near Infrared Radiation), which we primarily get from being outside. Since before the Industrial Revolution, our exposure to NIR has declined dramatically—we spend less time outdoors, and now even our lightbulbs and the glass in our windows limits how much NIR we receive, but it turns out that we need it. What else do we need that we don’t yet know about? Finally, we discuss the place for sophistry: in the classroom, where students can learn how to respond, so as to be better thinkers and citizens of the world.

#125 Alito Goes a Long Way (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
6362

In this 125th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

 

This week, we discuss the new current thing. The new current thing is not the Pfizer data release that happened this week, although perhaps it should be. The new current thing is the leaked draft majority opinion from Judge Alito, Supreme Court Justice of the United States, which reveals that Roe v. Wade is likely to be overturned. We discuss abortion, abortion policy, and what Americans say when they’re polled about these things. Is there a hard-and-fast line to draw? Does biology provide insights? We argue that abortion is not a women’s issue, per se, but an issue that pertains to all humanity, while also being a feminist issue.

#124 The Beauty and Tragedy of Earth (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
6950

In this 124th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

 

This week, we discuss the biology, geology, and conservation of the Bahamas, particularly the Exumas islands. How do parrotfish turn coral into sand, what’s up with tropicbirds, and what does it mean that all Caribbean beaches have trash on them? Apologies for the sound quality during the videos.

 

We also discuss the lifting of federal mask mandates on transportation; the White House arguing that “affirmative care” for children who say they are transgender is “best practice”; the new czar of disinformation, brought to you by the Department of Homeland Security; and whether our President is fit for office. Finally, we spend a few minutes talking about ancient children playing in the footprints of giant sloths, and whether Indiana Jones was correct in suggesting that little scorpions are scarier than big ones.

5659

In this 123rd in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

 

This week, we discuss Elon Musk’s twitter play, and the implications for censorship, and the new public square. We discuss the modern impulse to make binaries of things that aren’t (e.g. political opinions), and to reject binaries that are real (e.g. sex). We talk about puberty blockers, and their non-reversibility, and whether “gender identity” is a real thing. And we discuss great evolutionary theorist W.D. Hamilton who, in the late 1990s, warned of the coming “hospitalization” of humans—an observation well worth considering in the Age of Covid.

#122 Retroactive Cancelation & Rights of Passage (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
6360

In this 122nd in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

 

This week, we discuss cancellation for being woke, and for being medically woke. We discuss vitamin D, latitude, altitude, health and allergies.  We talk about teaching children how to think, not what to think, and about Margaret Mead’s retroactive cancellation. We discuss coming of age in Samoa, New Jersey, among the Amish, and in the era of Covid. We talk about what the Amish do and do not engage in, and whether everyone should be aiming to go to college. We discuss how many progressives have sold out our values in the last two years—and before—and risked reversing decades of actual progress. We talk about Nuremberg, and vaccine mandates, and a GenX revolution.

#121 Welcome to the Noble Psy-Op (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
5295

In this 121st in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

 

This week, we discuss the newly published Together trial on the efficacy of Ivermectin in treating Covid, and the media’s response to said publication. We discuss mass formation, as detailed in Mattias Desmet’s book, The Psychology of Totalitarianism (not “The Origins of Totalitarianism,” as Heather said during the podcast; that is the name of Hannah Arendt’s 1951 tome). We discuss the left’s eagerness to be on the side of science, when it suits them, and we mention Solzhenitsyn. And we discuss the need for evidence-based medicine.

Bret speaks with Brian Peckford, who is taking the Canadian Federal government to court over COVID vaccine travel restrictions that he believes break the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, a document similar to the US Bill of Rights, which Brian drafted and signed.

Brian Peckford started his career as an educator, then served as the premier of Newfoundland and Labrador for nearly a decade. He is also an author, former minister, and notable member of the PC Party in Canada.

#120 What is a Woman? (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
6140

In this 120th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

 

This week, we discuss the definition of woman. What are women? Adult human females. What are adults, and humans, and females? Are we suffering a plague of sophistry? (Yes.) Must we turn this around? (Yes.) Are humans ever hermaphroditic? (No.) What about banana slugs? (Yes. What about them?) And clown fish? (Also yes—again, so? They’re clown fish, not humans.) We discuss the evolution of sex and sex roles (aka gender). We talk about Genetic Sex Determination and Environmental Sex Determination. We discuss anisogamy and monoecious and dioecious plants, and it’s interesting and not full of uninterpretable words. We do not discuss the paired hemipenes of snakes and lizards. Our apologies.

In this 118th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

 

This week, we discuss mask mandates, which end today on most of the West coast of the U.S. We discuss our approach to masks (and other things) two years ago, in March of 2020. We talk briefly about detransitioning, and its relationship to the public health response to Covid. We discuss Orwell’s position on socialism (and fruit-juice drinkers, and feminists). And we discuss why the origin of SARS-CoV2, and its likely development and evolution through serial passaging, makes a difference in how the virus behaves in humans.

In this 117th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

 

This week, we discuss Diversity Equity and Inclusion (DEI), vaccine mandates, and how very non-inclusive many arts (and other organizations) are being while they claim to be embracing DEI. We discuss the entraining of humans via mask mandates, and through prescriptions on how and where to walk. We talk about the policies that have been put in place “to protect people from Covid,” and how ineffective, or anti-effective, many of them have been. We discuss the value of meandering, of serendipity, of not knowing what the path will be. We discuss the value of work, and of spending time generating solutions. We discuss whether, as some have claimed, the mRNA vaccines are “gene therapy,” and what would that mean, according to the FDA’s definitions of same. We share an excerpt from Orwell’s 1937 The Road to Wigan Pier, which bears striking similarities to today’s economy. We discuss the price of lumber.

In this 116th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

 

This week, we discuss a hypothesis regarding the mechanism by which mRNA vaccines may cause myocarditis. We discuss fear and safety and how fear is used to convince us that we can do with less safety—in things from vaccines to transgenic trees. We discuss Ukraine, a bit, and fairness, and fixing the system so that we can be strong and liberal again, and we read two Wendell Berry poems, and a letter from a Canadian named Matthew.

#115 Don’t Say Anything at all (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
6590

https://open.spotify.com/episode/7LB9DkxkwNK2em5lphKHfo

*****

In this 115th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

This week, we talk about the two tiers of society: vaccinated and unvaccinated. Then we discuss the more hidden, and more dire, tiers being introduced first by the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act, and now by Homeland Security, in its crackdown on mis-, dis-, and mal- information. We briefly discuss the war on pineapple. We celebrate, again, the Truckers for Freedom, who are standing for freedom and democracy in Ottawa, and whose compatriots are at the Coutts border crossing in Alberta, and the Ambassador Bridge in Windsor as well. We discuss the class component of these protests, and the middle-class’s often erroneous understanding of what working class people do and do not do. We discuss fact checking and rent seeking; also: Twister Sister and Beethoven.

In this 114th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

 

This week, we talk about Truckers for Freedom, the movement and protest of “passionate, patriotic and peaceful” people who are standing, in Ottawa, against mandates and for freedom. We discuss the unacceptable death of a young woman, as described by her grieving mother, and media coverage that conveys the opposite of what is true. We discuss GoFundMe, and recommend the hashtag #GoTruckYourself. We hear words from Canadian politicians, and from a corporal in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, who speaks of his duty to neither comply, nor be complicit, with unlawful policies and regulations. We discuss Joe Rogan, flak over the target, crossing the Rubicon, and grief.

#113: The Wrong Side of History (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
5207

In this 113th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

 

This week, we talk about Omicron, Covid, and how public policy has failed to change in light of this highly transmissible but far less dangerous variant. We discuss two excellent essays in Tablet, one by a rabbi in San Francisco, the other on scientific and medical “dissidents,” of which we are two. We discuss the powerful and immense truckers’ convoy in Canada, which is signaling resistance to vaccine mandates, among other authoritarian measures that the duplicitous Ken doll who leads that country has implemented. We show that the MSM in the US is not covering the truckers convoy at all. We discuss Spotify and Substack and Neil Young and Joe Rogan, and provide a simple rubric for one way that you can know if you are on the wrong side of history: you favor censorship.

In this 112th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

 

This week, we talk about the crumbling public health narrative around Covid. We talk about how people will change their positions, how to do it honorably, and how to engage in forgiveness. We talk about the March on DC, to happen on January 23rd. We discuss the masking of children, the impatience of the vaccinated, and the dropping of vaccine mandates in the private sector and in governments. We recommend three movies (see below). We discuss how to move forward without sadness, despair, or anger. And we discuss Thich Nhat Hanh, who died at the age of 95.

6956

In this 111th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

This week, we talk about Covid, again. We talk about how our public health authorities talk about it, and whether VAERS is reliable, and how we would know. The Oregon Health Authority assures us that we “only have to wait five months” for a booster now. We talk about consilience, and how to assess claims of truth. We show a 2,000 year old skull out of Peru that has been…modified; and we show some street art out of DC. We talk about chicken that is actually plants; the successful Wari empire in pre-Incan South America who threw parties at which a combination of alcohol and hallucinogens were served; sperm whales learning how to avoid whalers; and a vast icefish breeding colony in Antarctica.

In this 110th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

This week, we talk about Covid from different rooms, because one of us has Omicron. It’s fine, very minor really. And having had it will provide lasting immunity to the virus! We discuss vaccine mandates, this variant compared to the last, and how some people have viewed the mRNA vaccines as a raft in a shipwreck, while others of us have not. We read a tiny bit from Kary Mullis, discuss brisket and the power of onions, and honor David Bowie on his birthday.

#109: Humanity Unmasked (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
6297

In this 109th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

This week, we talk about many things Covid. Obesity is a well-established comorbidity for Covid, but the mainstream media often insists that stigma, rather than actual physiological reality, is what puts fat people at risk. Why do public health injunctions so rarely offer anything that individuals can actually do for themselves? Children are at very low risk from bad outcomes from Covid. What are we stealing from them that we have no right to steal—with masks, physical distancing, and other interventions? How can we go on an “ethical offense” against mandates and other top-down measures? And finally: observations from the ground in Australia. Also: research-based consumer reviews, and the many languages into which our book is being translated!

Our book, A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century, is available from https://darvillsbookstore.indielite.org, (and everywhere books are sold), but they have sold out of signed copies.

#107: Explore Outside Your Lane (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
5202

In this 107th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

We discuss dissent, and argue that it is more common than people tend to think. What is up with the omicron variant? We remind people that there are ways to deal with Covid other than vaccines. Meanwhile, the AMA is apparently too busy declaring “morbidly obese” a mean term to actually care about people’s health. Florida is getting something right; the newly made-up PPSD (Post Pandemic Stress Disorder) will most definitely be responsible for all the heart problems that are about to occur; and the NYT aims directly at children. We discuss our Chanukah traditions. And there are many human universals, including: we have music, and we dance.

#106: Freeing Ourselves from the Medically Woke (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
5272

In this 106th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

We discuss Covid deaths in 2021, versus 2020, and what the numbers mean about public health policy; we also talk about the new variant. We briefly visit the difference in reporting between the Rittenhouse trial and the assault on people in a Christmas parade in Waukesha. We discuss types of woke, including medical. What is wrong with higher education, and how can we fix it? What does Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance have to say about the “church of reason”? And finally: Bret’s newest essay in UnHerd, The Liberal Case for Gun Ownership.

In this 105th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens. 

We discuss compliance, and that non-compliance is not inherently a bleak, dark, dreary place; it can be joyous. We read an excerpt from Catch-22. The Multnomah County Sheriff’s office is—in contrast—a bleak and dreary place these days. Then we investigate how “crossed state lines” is like “horse dewormer”? The Atlantic goes full gossip girl on vaccines. And we discuss the virtues of being in one place, really being there, and getting to know it over time.

#104: Locusts of Control (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
5355

In this 104th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

How can higher education be saved? The University of Austin launched this week, to much enthusiasm, some ridicule, and cautious optimism. We discuss what higher ed in general, and UATX in particular, needs to consider, including that faculty need to know something real, be able to communicate it, and have a fundamental belief in the humanity of their students. We discuss religion in the context of Chesterton’s fence, and apologies. What is an apology, why are apologies not just valuable but necessary, and how is modernity rendering them less useful? Finally: an update on the zoo giraffes who died, which we discussed last week: they had not been vaccinated, according to a Newsweek fact check. And a short discussion of quail.

5316

In this 103rd in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

What does Francis Collins (head of the NIH) have to say about truth, midwifery, gain of function research, and how to end the pandemic? We then discuss the strangely similar official responses to three different substances that have been suggested as treatment for or prophylaxis against Covid: hydroxychloroquine, ivermectin, and vitamin D. We talk about unnamed experts, and how they became so confident. We discuss the vaccination, and subsequent death, of giraffes in a zoo. And we discuss the situation of an elite young cross-country athlete whose family has to make a very difficult choice.

#102: Check Your Latitude at the Door (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
5416

In this 102nd in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

Beginning with a discussion of health and illness, followed by ads for our sponsors, we then launch into discussion of vitamin D deficiency and Covid comorbidities; a new study in The Lancet which finds that, if infected with Covid, vaccinated people transmit at the same rate as do unvaccinated people; and the prospect of vaccinating 5–11-year-olds against Covid. Finally, we discuss the wisdom of Nobel laureates: on tinkering, giving students difficult problems, and the value of discomfort.

#101: When Doctors Were Scientists (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
6233

In this 101st in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

Beginning with a discussion of Room 101 from Orwell’s 1984, we then share excerpts from Ross Douthat’s forthcoming book, The Deep Place, with discussion of how we arrive at medical consensus, how long-term illness is often misunderstood by the medical establishment, and how weirdos on the internet can get things more right than the authorities. Rose and McCullough’s research paper on myocarditis was pulled by the journal with no explanation; the letter that came back from the editor had no info in it. The Washington Post makes the extraordinary claim that “the public is observing the scientific method up-close and in real time.” New research finds that obstetricians are human and fallible, and prone to the same kinds of cognitive distortions that we all are. We read and then discuss C.S. Lewis’s short 1948 essay, On Living in an Atomic Age. And we finish with a discussion of sea lions.

#100: The Demolition of Dissent (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
5102

In this 100th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

In this episode we discuss consensus, forced consensus, and the manufacture of consensus. We discuss medical misinformation, censorship, and freedom of speech (and freedom to listen). We also discuss how Australia is approaching vaccines and exposure to Covid. We talk a bit about one hundred years of the culture war, and the use of the props of science to drive change. We pick up a couple items from This Week in The Absurd and Appalling: Teen Vogue jumps another shark, and a pumpkin parade is cancelled. Also: how to find the sea lion on your car, and what to do about it once you’ve found it.

#99: What Science Does for Meaning (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
4478

In this 99th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

In this episode we discuss whether understanding science destroys our sense of awe. We ask how gazing out across the ocean, or into a vast and dark night sky, affect our sense of our own humanity, and what Roger Scruton had to say on the subject, in “Effing the Ineffable.” We follow this with discussions of necessity and sufficiency in scientific investigation; the fact that Tylenol is dangerous for pregnant women and children; why talking about pregnant people rather than women is disrespectful and suggestive of an anti-scientific worldview; Molnupiravir and its effects; and parenting in the modern era. Finally, we discuss the success and fate of our book, A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century, which is a best-seller despite being widely unavailable.

#98: Everybody's a Critic (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
5761

In this 98th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

In this episode, we discuss critique, and specifically dissect two negative reviews of our book—one of which, in an establishment outfit, is not really a review; the other of which, posted on amazon, is actually careful and cogent. We discuss the difference being uninformed (or scientifically illiterate), and being unwilling to be informed (scientifically resistant).  Our book is an invitation to think deeply about what we are, and how to live better lives at both the individual and societal level. We discuss new research out of New Mexico that finds evidence for people there 23,000 years ago. We discuss how history is taught, and what our actual human past has to say about different types of frontiers, including geographic, as those earliest Americans found. We discuss Roger Scruton’s essay Dying in Time. And yes, we do mention that we made the New York Times best seller list.

In this 97th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

We talk about Pegasus spyware. We discuss lessons learned and topics covered in recent media about the book: on not being cancellable, on the value of sometimes going it alone, on why we need to save Enlightenment values, but may not be able to save the current institutions of higher ed. And we talk about how our book is doing in the marketplace, and what it means about legacy media vs upstart media.

#96: Finding the Fourth Frontier (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
4227

In this 96th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

In this episode, we discuss society, and how to have a functional one. Beginning with a discussion of 9/11, Bret then reads an excerpt from an essay he wrote after the November 2015 Paris attacks. We then share an excerpt from the final chapter of our forthcoming book, A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century, in which we discuss historical frontiers—geographic, technological, and transfer-of-resource. We call for a fourth kind of frontier, and discuss austerity and value, progress and discovery. We compare narrative with analysis, and how most people are not in fact stupid. We discuss the Maya, and what we can learn from them. We also discuss our new nemesis, the very hungry caterpillar.

#95: Collective Consciousness (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
4695

In this 95th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

In this episode, we take on culture and consciousness. Beginning with an excerpt from the penultimate chapter of our forthcoming book, we define the terms somewhat differently from how others define them, and discuss how human history can be understood as a tension between culture—received wisdom, orthodoxy, that which works in times of stability—and consciousness—with both its high error rate and promise of innovation, which works in times of change. We discuss collective joy, dancing in the streets,  Carnaval, astrology, taboos,  the sacred and the shamanistic, and hallucinogens. We talk about things that are literally false, metaphorically true.

#94: Is it Later Than We Think? (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
5300

In this 94th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

In this episode, we discuss adulthood. Beginning with an excerpt from the Adulthood chapter of our forthcoming book, we discuss postmodernism and physical reality. We then discuss error correction, and explain our concern about the Carvallo study out of Argentina. We discuss cargo cult science, and Heather’s conversation with a liberal Christian outside of a farmer’s market: on being good to one another and connecting, the police and protests and leadership and forgiveness. We share a short excerpt from Elie Wiesel’s book Night, discuss diminishing returns curves, and vitamin D and other low-hanging pandemic fruit. Finally, we enjoin you to smile at people, put your phone down, and define your fights for whom and what you love, rather than against whom and what you hate.

In this 93rd in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

In this episode, we discuss school. Beginning with a discussion of our individual experiences in school, we then share an excerpt from chapter 10 (School) of our forthcoming book, A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century. What is school for, and what does it help make us become? Is genius common, or rare? What is the purpose of the scientific method? How is fear used to corral students (and others)? How does a relationship with risk help young people become more adept adults? Are our bodies necessary to our education, or can we be educated as if we were just brains in jars?

In this episode, we discuss childhood. Beginning with an excerpt from chapter 9 (Childhood) of our forthcoming book, A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century, we discuss what childhood is, what other organisms have it, and why it is important. We discuss plasticity in development, and the need to develop flexibility as a growing human. We discuss Lenore Skenazy (America’s Worst Mom!), and Let Grow, an organization dedicated to helping kids build real-world confidence, competence and openness. We discuss the need for play—real, unstructured play without interference from adults—and for risk. And we discuss the adaptive underpinnings of play.

#91: The Fog Machine of War (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
5493

In this 91st in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

In this episode, we discuss co-morbidities that are associated with bad outcomes from Covid (e.g. obesity, anxiety), and how to take control of your own health. We discuss Joe Rogan and his detractors. The “Central Park Karen” story from May 2020 is revealed as something most people don’t know, by Bari Weiss and Kmele Foster in a recent episode of Honestly (Bari’s podcast). It is an amazing story—well worth listening to—and one lesson of it is that we are living in a conclusion-driven world—journalism, science, and justice are all succumbing. We discuss how (other) liberals are beginning to see the mainstream narrative as incoherent and dangerous. And we discuss plans to bike a century. Chapter 8 of A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century, our forthcoming book, is “Parenthood and Relationship.” We read an excerpt on pets and love and also grief, and discuss the value of sitting with the body of your loved one after they die. And finally, we discuss why breast is best, despite what manufacturers of formula would have you believe. Breastfeeding for the win.

#90: Weave Well Enough Alone (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)

In this 90th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

In this episode, we discuss our essay, “On Driving SARS-CoV2 Extinct: Why We Need a Multi-Pronged Approach.” We discuss some of the misinformation that is circulating about…all of this. We then discuss sex and gender: beginning with an excerpt from chapter 7 of A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century—Sex and Gender—we discuss the division of labor, the effect of agriculture on gender roles, what sex and gender are, and whether it’s manly to weave. Finally, we discuss a few current events that are pertinent: the eradication of “male” and “female” from medical school curricula; the welcoming of transwomen to compete as and against women in the Olympics; and a short excerpt from Helen Joyce’s new book, Trans. No, we’re not transphobic, but we do see transactivism as a destructive force that is good for nearly nobody—including those rare people who are truly trans.

#89: Transcendental Medication (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
5154

In this 89th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

In this episode, we begin by discussing a recent episode of the Making Sense podcast, in which Sam Harris and guest Eric Topol strawman both our position, and that of many people who are trying to engage honestly and carefully with scientific evidence. We discuss the evidence that having had Covid confers immunity against SARS-CoV2; the concerns of some doctors about granting EUAs for the covid vaccines to be used in children; and the selective pressure on pathogens that imperfect vaccination creates. We then discuss sleep: beginning with an excerpt from chapter 6 of A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century—Sleep—we discuss dreams and hallucinations, the use of entheogens across human cultures, and the role of different qualities and intensities of light in modulating melatonin, mood, and alertness at various times of day. Finally, we speak to whether the phase of the moon affects our sleep, and conclude by noting that right now, the moon is full.

#88: How Bread got Broken (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
6641

In this 88th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

In this episode, we discuss a recent loss, and its interface with the on-line environment, before moving into the meat (and veg) of the episode: food! Beginning with an excerpt from chapter 5 of A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century—Food—we discuss the role of food in the lives of both modern and ancient humans. We discuss research that finds that the health and longevity of mid-Victorian era Britons was equal to or better than our own; and other research that addresses how not just food, but our microbiomes, are affected by the environments in which we live. We discuss the efffects of sterilizing our environments during Covid, and finally, how co-morbidities (“underlying conditions”) predict outcomes in Covid patients who are hospitalized.

#87: We Must Drive this Virus to Extinction (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
6623

In this 87th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

In this episode, we discuss why SARS-CoV2 must be driven to extinction, why the currently available vaccines are unlikely to be able to do so, and why we therefore need additional tools in our toolkit. We address and rebut the recent Quillette article, which contained copious journalistic and scientific errors, and excluded evidence relevant to the questions under discussion. A written response will be published soon as well. Finally, we share an excerpt from A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century, chapter 4 (Medicine).

#85: YouTube and the Truman Faux Medical Show (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
5729

In this 85th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

In this episode, Bret begins with a monologue on YouTube, Google, the allegory of the cave, David and Goliath, and more, before we switch off YouTube and stream solely from Odysee. We then discuss what counts as a positive Covid test from the CDC’s perspective, and why their answer differs depending on whether you’ve been vaccinated or not. How will we know how many vaccine breakthrough cases are happening given how the data are being handled? We discuss OSHA’s move to obscure data on breakthrough cases as well. We discuss a new paper (Walach et al 2021) that finds that, in a field study out of Israel, the mass vaccination campaign saved three lives for every two people who died from vaccinations. We discuss PEG (polyethylene glycol), which is an ingredient in far too many things, including the mRNA vaccines, and turns out to be toxic to tadpoles. And we briefly discuss the spike protein crossing the blood-brain barrier, before finally talking a bit about chapter 2 of our forthcoming book, A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century, and reading an excerpt on the origin of primates.

Our book, A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century, is now available for pre-sale at amazon. Publication date: 9-14-21: https://www.amazon.com/dp/0593086880/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_dp_5BDTABYFKRJKZBT5GSQA

#84: Hey YouTube: Divide by Zero (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
5622

In this 84th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens—now for the first time live on Odysee!
 
In this episode, we discuss chapter 1 of our forthcoming book, A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century, and read an excerpt on culture and consciousness, and the need for generalists in a hyper-specialized world. Bret then introduces a new term: Asch-troturfing, to help explain some of the problems on social media (and beyond). We briefly discuss a new meta-analysis that reviews the evidence for the efficacy of Ivermectin as both prophylaxis and treatment for Covid-19. We discuss the perils of the politicizing of science, and also the perils of bringing market forces directly into contact with scientific endeavors, as the grant-university pipeline in the U.S. has done for many decades now. We discuss what science is, and how varied it can look. We mock PolitiFact for its absurdity. And we read a few excerpts from Nineteen-Eighty-Four, in honor of this moment in time, and this being episode #84.

Our book, A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century, is now available for pre-sale at amazon. Publication date: 9-14-21: https://www.amazon.com/dp/0593086880/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_dp_5BDTABYFKRJKZBT5GSQA

In this episode, we discuss how it is that claims of knowledge are made, and how social norms overlay our ability to think: the sociology of epistemology. We discuss lab leak hypothesis, why intellectual credit matters, and why the press needs to do better. Then: get physically active for a better outcome if you get Covid. And: trans ideology comes to kickboxing, and also to taxonomy, with an ant named they. Then: a poem found in NW Portland. And finally: a pro bono ad for epoxy putty.

In this episode, we again discuss the research showing that SARS-CoV2’s spike protein is sufficient on its own to cause disease. The authors believe that this is good news with regard to the vaccines currently in circulation; they may be right. We discuss the paper, the authors’ clarification. Then: lab leak  hypothesis  continues to gain ground. And: Portland erupts in more violence. The Evergreen State College cannot manage to hire a new president—what are they doing wrong, and what does it suggest about the future of higher ed? Finally, robins and crows face-off.

#76: Too Dumb For Fiction (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
6455

 In this 76th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens. In this episode, we discuss Portland going off the rails again. More riots and vandalism happened downtown, and we went to document some of it: the Apple store, the dumpster fires, the volunteers picking up trash, the companies proclaiming that we are “united by love” while (only) the white women in their displays are crossed out by activists. Meanwhile, the public schools debate changing names and mascots, and we are told that we need to register our cats. Then: a discussion of four numbers in the news this week. Three: shots now needed for the Pfizer vaccine. Ninety: the percentage of false positives from Covid tests in England. Thirteen: the proposed new number of Supreme Court Justices. 2.5 billion: the number of T. rexes who once roamed the Earth. Penultimately, we discuss lizards that aren’t lizards (but are in fact salamanders). And finally: footage from a coyote den that we (or rather, our dog) found near us, which had in it a mother and two kits.

5186

In this 75th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.  In this episode we discuss privacy, and the amazing things that we (and you) can see with game cameras: beaver, river otters, nutria, coyotes. Then: should children be allowed to medically and surgically transition? One approach to understanding our answer is to consider type-I vs type-II errors in statistics. And: shall we drug children to get them to fit with modernity (specifically, a new ADHD drug)? What helps breed “persistence” in children? On a different topic: on the villainification of Jordan Peterson by Ta-Nehisi Coates. Finally: sunlight really is the best disinfectant (of SARS-CoV2).

This episode marks the first episode in which we broadcast ads. After speaking two ads at the top of the show, we devote the rest of the episode to a critique of advertising, a history of ads in nature (bird plumage or song, bright coloration or patterning on a toxic frog or butterfly), and a discussion of how ads have been used to drive editorial content in some places, notably magazines aimed at women and girls. We then provide eight pro bono ads: products or things that we think are awesome (or not), and why we think so. This was fun; we hope you think so, too.

5930

In this 73rd in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens. This episode marks the one year anniversary of the Evolutionary Lens! We discuss its origin, and talk about the books we’ve read from on-air over the last year. In other news: A ship is stuck in the Suez Canal; Bret has an Evergreen take on the situation. Also the former head of the CDC, Robert Redfield, says that lab leak is the most likely origin for SARS-CoV2. Meanwhile, RT wants us to believe that the Amazon rainforest causes global warming. In happier news, saffron seems to lift depression. And finally: why we should absolutely be talking about detransition, which is what happens when people who have transitioned decide that they made an error, and work to regain their former sexual identities, health, and lives.

5554

In this 72nd in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens. It’s the Spring equinox, and there are frogs—frogs who are anatomically able to tune out some of the voices of other frogs whom they have no interest in. Then: Bret’s challenge to Ibram Kendi, which includes a simple proof involving dogs and anti-racism. And: the left are increasingly gullible; we provide an example from a class action lawsuit in California against the use of CRT in state agencies. Finally: Is widespread vaccination during a pandemic safe? We discuss the views of a scientist, Geert Vanden Bossche, who argues “no.”

#71: Make Dopamine While the Sun Shines (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
4752

In this 71st in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens. In this episode, we talk about trees and mental health and lockdowns and polar bears. Among other things. Does having trees outside your window help mitigate depression? If so, how close do they need to be? Does it matter what species they are? What’s so great about trees anyway? What about rivers or birds or volcanoes? Also: how do extended lockdowns affect teenagers in particular? What do we lose when we close schools, shut down organized sports, keep people from socializing?

#69: Evolution of Power (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
5051

In this 69th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens. In this episode, we begin by discussing power, race and social media, specifically regarding the app Clubhouse. We talk about how Covid outcomes are affected by preexisting conditions, such as obesity and hypertension. We ask: should children be vaccinated, and are the reasons being proposed to do so justified? We review a truly sexist obituary of an esteemed scientist, and ask what should be done about it. And we review a new finding in octopi.

#68: Drunk Without Power - or - Is That a Fact? (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
5542

In this 68th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.In this episode, we begin by discussing ice storms and electrical outages, and what it suggests about differing ecologies. We review Daniel Schmactenberger’s categorization of “1st, 2nd, and 3rd person epistemics”, and discuss what they suggest about education. Meanwhile, the NYT argues for skipping the critical reasoning and going right to the answer. Modern fact-checkers are an existential threat to civilization. The NYT also thinks that ClubHouse’s “unfettered” conversations are a problem. The House Committee on Energy & Commerce is having a(nother) meeting on misinformation with big tech CEOs. Also, a group of activists got Wikipedia to take down a page on the lab leak hypothesis. Peter Embarek of the WHO commission explains why the lab leak hypothesis is unlikely (or does he?). Another new paper suggests that lab leak should be the default hypothesis. And finally: dung beetles, and what else they can offer us besides cool field projects.

#66: All Biology is Evolutionary Biology (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
7024

In this 66th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens. In this episode, we begin by discussing what the increasing visibility of a viable hypothesis for the origins of SARS-CoV2 says about modern science and politics. Then: Is eating red meat inflammatory? Is saying that eating red meat is inflammatory, inflammatory? What would it mean for evolutionary biologists to “stay in their lane” (and why shouldn’t we)? What does “follow the science” mean when we are being told to wear masks in National Parks? Is the New York Times punking us, or did they seriously just suggest that encrypted messaging services are dangerous because untrue things are sometimes said? What is the null hypothesis—in general, and in particular, with regard to the origins of SARS-CoV2? Does Sony’s classification system of “human, animal and bird” make any sense, and does it matter? And finally: what are sidewinders and how do they move, what are mangroves, and what on Earth could the connection possibly be?

#65: Because Science (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
5376

In this 65th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens. In this episode, we begin by offering gratitude to Bill Maher and his crew for having us on on January 29—but why didn’t Heather answer his question about vaccines? She does so here, and we discuss a bit more about vaccine technology (also see episode 58 for more on that). Next: What does consensus look like in science, and when are we looking at forced consensus, one which may not accurately reflect underlying reality? What does this have to do with the “lab leak hypothesis” regarding the origin of SARS-CoV2? Following that: how does diet affect COVID—either in terms of mitigating risk of contracting it, or of reducing symptoms if you have it? Short advice: eat more ferment, and buy local. We finish by talking about tuna, and sea stars.

#64: The Data Are Going to be Phenomenal! (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
5385

In this 64th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens. In this episode, we begin by discussing some of the Biden administration’s early policy decisions: shutting down DAPL, rejoining the Paris Agreement on Climate, and affirming the rights of trans people (and in so doing putting the rights of women at risk). Rolling Stone (the magazine) jumps the shark (but is it a literal or a metaphorical shark?). We discuss how to survive a year of lockdowns if you’re a small business, calling on two anecdotes from Portland. We discuss what is happening at Powell’s, Portland’s massive, independent bookstore, and ask what it says about “mostly peaceful” protests. Tech censorship is continuing apace, with the removal of Game-B architects from Facebook. And a doctor advises us to “trust the science,” saying that “the data is phenomenal!”

#63: Beg Your Pardon (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
5579

In this 63rd in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens. In this episode, we begin by discussing impeachment, pardons, and the Federalist papers, taking lessons from America’s history. Then we discuss a new research paper that finds that asymptomatic COVID cases account for half of all infections—is the research well-done, the model founded, the conclusions warranted? We discuss the fact that Oceania (New Zealand and Australia) have implemented such successful COVID containment measures that they are delaying vaccinations for a bit. And we end with a tale of two bald eagles and their nest, speaking also to other birds and their nests—swallows, Steller’s jays, robins.

#62: Tyranny Comes at you Fast (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
6134

In this 62nd in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens. In this episode, we discuss the value of gratitude, always but especially now. We pivot to the lab leak hypothesis, and what its discussion in the mainstream media means for the ability of society at large to consider what might be true regarding the origins of SARS-CoV2. We discuss what happened in the Capitol on January 6, and and the ensuing censorship and purges by the big tech platforms. We see the boot coming down hard and fast, with calls from U.S. Representatives to refocus our concern on events and enemies within our own borders. Finally, a reading from Thich Nhat Hanh’s 2012 book, Fear: Essential Wisdom for Getting Through the Storm.

#61: If Covid Policy Were Rational (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
6315

In this 61st in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens. In this episode, we discuss kambo, the poison of an Amazonian frog, which is being used by Americans who are seeking a purgative and possibly spiritual experience, but the people at the NYT once again reveal that they have no idea even how to speak science, much less assess it. From there, down the rabbit hole we go to a discussion of the different diets of four Amazonian tribes. We then discuss the politicization of science, in discussion of the COVID-19 vaccine from the Oregon Healthcare Authority, possible drug treatments for COVID, and a third, promising vaccine which is on the horizon. We also reveal that Ted Wheeler, mayor of Portland, has said some mean things about antifa. At the top of this episode, we reveal new “First Against the Wall Club” merchandise, and make a correction from episode #60, regarding the Evergreen locker room story.

In this 58th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens. In this episode, we discuss the COVID-19 vaccines, and what questions you would want to answer in order to understand them: Are they safe? Are they effective? If you survive COVID-19, what are the long-term health effects? We discuss what an mRNA vaccine is and does, and how the immune system functions (and fails to function). We also talk about what makes flies sexy. The answer may surprise you: big long wings, and a diet of tomatoes.
