    440. Looking Back on the Campaign, and Forward for the Country | Vivek Ramaswamy

    440. Looking Back on the Campaign, and Forward for the Country | Vivek Ramaswamy

    Dr. Jordan B. Peterson sits down with 2024 presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy to discuss the recent suspension of his campaign, how he fought the traditional media’s best advances against him, who he is endorsing now, and the American values he seeks to defend going forward.

    Vivek Ramaswamy is an entrepreneur, author, and political activist. Vivek has been making headlines since announcing his candidacy for the 2024 presidential election, running on a platform in part to dismantle the expansive and corrupt bureaucracy that has seeped into nearly all facets of American government. Prior to this, Ramaswamy was the founder and CEO of the biopharmaceutical company Roivant Sciences. Leaving in 2021, he published “Woke, Inc.: Inside Corporate America's Social Justice Scam.” In 2022, he co-founded Strive Asset Management with Anson Frericks, which focuses on an alternative to the now-pushed ESG investment framework. That same year Ramaswamy published “Nation of Victims: Identity Politics, the Death of Merit, and the Path Back to Excellence”
    and has since been deemed one of the “Intellectual Godfathers of the anti-woke movement.”

    439. Microplastics, Global Greening, & the Dangers of Radical Alarmism | Dr. Patrick Moore

    Dr. Jordan B. Peterson sits down with industry consultant, science activist, and past president of Greenpeace Canada (1971 to 1986), Dr. Patrick Moore. They discuss his time in Greenpeace, the historic timeline of global ice ages and climate change, the clear lies being peddled to promote alarmism, and how the woke left manipulates science (and scientists) to promote a falsely perceived and politically incentivized future catastrophe.

    Dr. Patrick Moore has been a leader in the international environmental field for more than 45 years. He is a co-founder of Greenpeace and served for nine years as President of Greenpeace Canada and seven years as a Director of Greenpeace International. As the leader of many campaigns Dr. Moore was a driving force shaping policy and direction for 15 years while Greenpeace became the world's largest environmental activist organization.

    In recent years, Dr. Moore has been focused on the promotion of sustainability and consensus building among competing concerns. He was a member of the British Columbia government-appointed Round Table on the Environment and Economy from 1990 - 1994. In 1990, Dr. Moore founded and chaired the BC Carbon Project, a group that worked to develop a common understanding of climate change.

    In 2021 Dr. Moore published "Fake Invisible Catastrophes and Threats of Doom" exposing the fake news and fake science around 11 claims of disaster including climate change, coral reefs, polar bears, plastic, nuclear energy, and more.

Love him - but let the interviewee talk

Really enjoy the podcasts but I do get frustrated when Dr Peterson goes into soliloquy or talks over rather than interview his guest. Sometimes conversation are too one-way.

Twitter was meant for children and twits

I just listened to Jordan and Sam podcast- it’s unbelievable to me that these two intellectuals have just arrived at the conclusion that Twitter is bad. I could never understand why mature adults and corporations embraced Twitter in the first place, it’s meant for children and twits. The name says it all.
Dictionary: Twit: a silly annoying person

Excellent work.

Loved the biblical stories lectures. Grew up going to church twice on Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, left the second I was old enough with no understanding.
These lectures made me see the sense in the stories in a way I never had before (except maybe from a Nick Cave song).
That’s why I love these lectures, because I feel like they’ve opened my eyes to some principles I had dismissed because of the bigoted, sexist, maniacal tyrant who had been administering them. As JDP would say, I’d thrown the baby out with the bathwater, But now, the baby’s back. Thanks to Jordan Peterson’s considered, scientific psychological understanding, they can be of some use to me now.
As for the one star reviews - I don’t reckon any of those reviews are by people who have actually listened to the podcast because they are all shallow dismissal based on prejudice, similar to stories I’ve seen written in the mainstream press. Almost the exact opposite of the well considered and intelligent depth of JDP. In debating terms - JDP has to deal with many ad hominem attacks which offer no legitimate engagement or discussion of the discussed issues. Like they’ve only come to write a review but haven’t actually listened. For once I’d like to hear an actual criticism with some depth.
