    How likely is it that aliens exist? How credible are the testimonies of David Grusch, Ryan Graves, and other UFO whistleblowers? Does antigravity defy the laws of physics? And do US universities have a problem with free speech? 

    I had the pleasure of exploring these issues on The Danny Jones Podcast. A podcast that exists to bring fringe cultures to a broad audience through thoughtful storytelling and beautiful cinematography.

    In our thought-provoking conversation, Danny and I challenged the boundaries of free thinking. And let me tell you, whether you’re a skeptic or a believer, this episode is worth a listen.

    How to Teach Physics to Students Without Lecturing with Eric Mazur

    How to Teach Physics to Students Without Lecturing with Eric Mazur

    Join my mailing list https://briankeating.com/list to win a real 4 billion year old meteorite! All .edu emails in the USA 🇺🇸 will WIN!

    Imagine walking into a classroom where the students are the ones driving the discussion. Where curiosity and collaboration have replaced rote memorization. A place where traditional education has been turned on its head, and the power of learning is placed directly in the hands of those who seek it.

    It's almost hard to imagine such a classroom after having studied in our current education system, right? But today’s guest on Into the Impossible has turned this unlikely fantasy into a reality by developing an active learning system that engages students rather than just lecturing them. 

    Meet Eric Mazur, physicist, educator, and mastermind behind peer instruction. Eric is a professor of physics and applied physics at Harvard University, and today, he’s here to discuss the past, present, and future of our education system. 

    Tune in! 

    Key Takeaways:


    00:00 Intro

    01:02 What is peer instruction? 

    10:54 Are professors necessary in the classroom? 

    17:37 Are lectures an effective way to teach? 

    23:39 Using technology in the classroom 

    28:11 Hiring good teachers and professors 

    31:41 The problem with grading

    36:56 Tenure system in academia

    41:36 Which subjects would Eric make compulsory  

    44:41 Outro

    Are we alone in the universe?

    This question has intrigued thinkers for centuries. Now, we finally have the tools and theoretical frameworks to explore the possibility of alien life scientifically. But how far have we come in our search? And are we close to finally finding our otherworldly neighbors? 

    Here today to help us answer these questions is none other than Professor Adam Frank. Adam is an astrophysicist and astrobiologist at the University of Rochester. His ground-breaking work has transformed our understanding of the universe and life itself.

    In this episode of Into the Impossible, we explore the scientific frontier of detecting aliens, the incredible potential of new technologies like the JWST, and how to evaluate extraordinary claims about UFOs and other phenomena.

    Is there a crisis in cosmology?!

    Well, not exactly. You see, there’s not just one crisis in cosmology. There are many crises! But don’t worry, that’s a good thing. Crises are what scientists live for!

    And what a time it is to be a cosmologist. We are at the forefront of uncovering the universe’s greatest mysteries, and we get to play with cutting-edge technology! 

    Recently, I got to share this passion of mine with Abhijit Chavda’s audience on his incredible show. We discussed the new and exciting breakthroughs that have been making headlines recently. But we also dove fearlessly into some of the most fundamental questions in cosmology that have been agitating the minds of thinkers for centuries.

    It was delightful to discuss the current state and future of cosmology. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did!

    Tune in.

    Key Takeaways:


    00:00:00 Intro

    00:01:53 Recent breakthroughs in cosmology and galaxy clustering

    00:06:22 Mission and impact of the Simons Observatory

    00:12:05 Recent crises in cosmology

Weinstein

So interesting! Did Weinstein ever talk to Donald Hoffman? Isn’t that what he’s looking for? Wow, a week later your guest is Hoffman, so great! Love all the insides from your podcast!
-PS: the conversation with Don Hoffman is an old Clubhouse talk from around two years ago, isn’t it? Maybe mention that in the show notes?

Great interview with Sam Harris today!!
