Eric Weinstein is one of the most thoughtful, fascinating people alive today. His way of thinking runs counter to the groupthink that is all too pervasive today. He has a slow, plodding approach at the truth that takes unexpected windings and involves, so far, conversations with other interesting and oddball thinkers. I have wondered at emotions, a theory of everything, the gawker story, friendship and the meaning of being a man with Eric and his guests leading. The Portal is something special. A hopeful beacon.

Keep up the good work!

Outstanding podcast

Wonderful podcast. I love the subject matter. Eric brings life to subjects that would be a complete bore in most academic settings. I love that he challenges his audience with material depth. His latest podcast on a unified theory of physics was by far my favorite. It introduced subject matter from analytic geometry and particle physics I had never even heard of. I think he did a great job of “black boxing” difficult concepts so that non-trained listeners could follow the thread of the conversation and the problems he was tackling. He clearly understands the subjects at a much deeper level than most university professors and can translated mathematical outcomes into real world effects that people can understand and also makes it known where the relationships are unclear. His enthusiasm and unorthodox questioning of classical scientific assumptions teases the listener along in an infectious way. It also provides comforting validation to anyone who has struggled with physics, chemistry, civics or philosophy at any academic level, questioned conventional wisdom and been smacked down for it. Eric this podcast is important and needed. Please keep up the great work and don’t be afraid to go deeper. I had to look up Klein bottle and E8, but don’t worry... in an era of Wikipedia we can follow.
