Sitting in the College Dorm at 1 a.m.

Listening to these guys reminds me of folks sitting in the dorm in awe of new concepts they are discovering for the first time, except they are in their 30's, which makes the experience both cool, and sad. For example, they first heard about epistemology for the first time just recently. Really??? Other real gaps of education reveal themselves all the time, like opining that Neil Postman was talking about things in advertising that advertisers hadn't already discovered years prior. After a Superforecasters review, Ben began using his new way of looking at the world on a number of different subjects, like somebody taking Marx 101 would start analyzing everything through the lens of class struggle during the semester. All in all, if you are looking for cute, snappy, but superficial quick takes on topics, it's like the old Regis and Kathie Lee show, except they use the WSJ for jumping off points, instead of the Post.
