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

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.
