    14. Dreaming in Cultural Models with Professor Jeannette-Marie Mageo

    In this video, I discuss how anthropologists can use dream data as a part of their work. In conversation with Professor Jeannette Mageo, we discuss her research on the nature of dreams, their impact on individual subjectivity, and how social scientists can use that to enhance their work.

    13. More Assumptions About Postmodern and Critical Theory with Sam Hoadley-Brill Part 2

    13. More Assumptions About Postmodern and Critical Theory with Sam Hoadley-Brill Part 2

    In this video, Bryant and Will talk with Sam Hoadley-Brill, a philosophy PhD student at CUNY. This is the second chat with Sam where we’ve discussed topics surrounding the public representations of postmodernism and critical race theory. The conversation starts with addressing interesting comments that viewers have issued about the very legitimate criticisms that people like James Lindsay and Jordan Peterson issue against postmodern and critical theoretical thought. In addition to providing some interesting updates since the last conversation, this conversation touches on topics surrounding public intellectuals, ‘real world’ concerns, and the kinds of conversations that might be more conducive to discussing these controversial topics.

    12. Postmodernism in Anthropology and Social Behavioral Research with PhD Student Deven Gray

    Applying Postmodernism to Anthropology and Social Behavioral Research with PhD Student Deven Gray

    In this episode, Bryant and Will talk with PhD graduate student Deven Gray about how he applies postmodernism as a researcher. We talk about how it doesn't prevent research, but can lead us to conducting better research. We discuss his research around Zika in Belize, and how postmodernism can sometimes be the most pragmatic method to use.

    11. How James Lindsay and Jordan Peterson Misrepresent Postmodern Philosophy with Sam Hoadley Brill

    #11 | How James Lindsay and Jordan Peterson Misrepresent Postmodern Philosophy with Sam Hoadley Brill

    In this episode, I discuss so-called "Cynical Theories" as discussed by public figures like James Lindsay and Jordan Peterson with PhD philosophy student Sam Hoadley-Brill. We discuss Foucault, Derrida, and other postmodern and deconstruction scholars, and the ways these public debates fall short of making promising critiques of philosophical arguments.

    10. Are Men Animals? Defining Masculinity and Gender with Dr Matthew Gutmann

    10. Are Men Animals? Defining Masculinity and Gender with Dr Matthew Gutmann

    #10 | Are Men Animals? Defining Masculinity and Gender with Dr Matthew Gutmann

    In this episode, I discuss masculinity with Dr Matthew Gutmann—Professor of Anthropology at Brown University. We discuss the themes he talks about in his latest book: Are Men Animals? How Modern Masculinity Sells Men Short. One main point he makes is that there is a diversity of masculinities in all times and places, and turning to biological explanations falls short of actually understanding the roots of the behavioral dimensions of gender.

    9. Addiction and Biocultural Feedback Loops with Neuroanthropologist Dr Daniel Lende

    #9 | Addiction and Biocultural Feedback Loops with Neuroanthropologist Dr Daniel Lende

    In this episode, I discuss the roots of addiction from a neuroanthropological perspective with Dr Daniel Lende—an Anthropology Professor at the University of South Florida.

    We discuss his research on addiction, and his attempts to bridge ethnographic data with neuroscience in order to understand the biocultural feedback loop that lies at the heart of addiction. Also discussed are American notions of gender, and how social media has comes to influence so much of our lives.
