    I hit 1.75 million Subscribers on YouTube!!
    To celebrate, I asked for questions from YouTube, Twitter, Locals and Instagram, so here’s another 90 minutes of me trying to answer as many as possible.

    Rob Henderson is a PhD graduate from the University of Cambridge, a US Air Force Veteran and an author.

    #747 - Eric Weinstein - Why Does The Modern World Make No Sense?

    Eric Weinstein is a mathematician, economist, former managing director of Thiel Capital and a podcaster.
    It's a rough time to be a human. The massive increase in information we have access to has made understanding the world harder, not easier. Whether it's higher education, culture, physics, or pretty much anything else, life can be very confusing.
    Expect to learn what Eric thinks about the most recent furore coming out of Harvard, why the world of physics has made no progress in decades, why Jeffrey Epstein was interested in Stephen Hawking, how much truth there is in the recent flurry of stories about inter-dimensional extraterrestrials, Eric's predictions for the 2024 election and much more...
