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.
