Amazing interview with Dr. Pierre Kory on ivermectin

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
#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.

#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.

#81: Permission to Think (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
5325

In this 81st 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 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.

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 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.

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).

In this 74th 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 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.

#73: Arroz by any Other Name (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
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.

#72: Dogs, Frogs, and Viral Analogs (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
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.” 

 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

#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? And: what do polar bears eat when melting sea ice keeps the seals out of reach? Duck eggs of course!

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!”

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.

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 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.

Should you stay in your lane? What does it mean when a person is consistent in their arguments over time? How do new social media platforms become like old social media platforms?

#51: Facebook, Twitter, & Evolving Door Politics (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
5905

In this 51st in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss Bret’s recent Facebook ban. What are the implications for democracy when social media platforms are in the business of deciding who gets to speak?
