I’ve been listening to this invigorating podcast of Doctors Brett Weinstein and Heather Heying for a few years now and give a big thumbs up for their bravery, intellect and stoicism, their variety of content and their joyful yet genuine personalities - thank you Brett and Heather! I would also highly recommend their recent publication “A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century”.

What a pity

Was really looking forward to the polio interview. But sadly this interview was hijacked by the interviewer. I wanted to hear the guests story and what his book was about. Sadly it seemed to be interrupted too much by the interviewers opinion, experience and perspective. Not one of the best but such a fascinating topic.?

Thx. Excellent Diligent Effort.

Thank you all for tackling the tough, questions, and having the tough conversations. Afterall if something is precious, it is worth fighting for… like I don’t know, free speech..Robert Wright -Bup Bow.
