    RFK Jr: The Good and the Bad (and a Million Reasons Why NOT to Vote for Him)

    RFK Jr: The Good and the Bad (and a Million Reasons Why NOT to Vote for Him)

    We couldn't resist talking about RFK Jr's brain worm. But this turned out to be a wide-ranging conversation about the pros and cons of RFK as a presidential candidate and third-party candidates generally. We also discuss the role of fear in politics, our frustration with both mainstream media and people like Joe Rogan, and other topics.

    Who Is Guillaume Verdon, What’s Up with E/acc, & Is Thermodynamic Computing Really a Thing?

    Who Is Guillaume Verdon, What’s Up with E/acc, & Is Thermodynamic Computing Really a Thing?

    This episode offers an overview of Guillaume Verdon (aka Beff Jezos), the effective acceleration movement (e/acc), and Verdon's company Extropic.
    Despite our initial impressions, we have come around to Verdon and we're genuinely exciting about his "thermodynamic computing" company. But we do give time to his critics and discuss the comparisons being made between him and Elizabeth Holmes.
