True intelligence is knowing what you don’t know
As a lawyer, I enjoy listening to this podcast and it’s generally quite good. John Yoo and Richard Epstein are both quite conservative but they are also quite smart and it’s fun to compare their reactions to news with the reactions of the (also very smart) hosts of Strict Scrutiny and Divided Argumemt.
What I find fascinating though is how Richard Epstein continues to offer his opinions on the effectiveness of various Covid-19 public health measures with such self-confidence when he has been wrong every single step of the way. Google his Covid predictions; he “projected” in March 2020 that only 500 Americans would die from Covid, then revised his “projection” to 5,000 a month later. And yet, 600,000 deaths later, Richard Epstein still acts like he is a public health expert. You’re a very good lawyer and law professor, but have some humility and stay away from things that you are not an expert on.
Whiney and full
This is just guys complaining. I can tell they are attempting humor, but the level of the humor along with the incessant whining make it impossible to listen long enough to get good info.
