Support podcast
On The DarkHorse Podcast, we will explore questions that matter, with tools that work. Weekly episodes of "The Evolutionary Lens" are co-hosted with Heather Heying, in which we use an evolutionary toolkit to reveal patterns in nature--including human nature. Other episodes will feature Bret hosting long form discussions. Some guests will be well known, others obscure, but all of them are chosen because they have demonstrated unusual insight. The state and future of civilization will be a recurring theme, so buckle up!
#138 Thou Shalt Follow the Science (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
In this 138th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens. This week, we discuss what fatwas and cancel culture have in common. Why are we allowing zealots to decide what we can say and do by fiat? The circuitry of religion has an ancient history (even when it goes off the rails, as in the attack on Salman Rushdie); it is being hijacked by a secular cult. This new cult is targeting apostates, and heretics. The new cult does not admit when it is wrong—the CDC simply puts out new guidelines that recommend treating vaccinated and unvaccinated people as equivalent. The new cult sneaks in ideology when you’re not looking. The new cult is anti-science, anti-reality, and anti-democracy. ***** Support the sponsors of the show: Thesis: personalized nootropics for motivation, creativity, confidence and more.

#137 Hostile Work Environments & Folks Who Love Them (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
In this 137th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.This week, we discuss Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in the academy, and ask: does DEI belong in science? If the answer is no, are we contributing to a hostile or alienating workplace? We argue that it is the DEI enthusiasts who are creating hostile and alienating spaces for all of the rest of us. Then: laboratory of the self, and some hypotheses about pain perception, illness, and pathogens. Finally: land sharks.

We talk about the order to close Tavistock, the gender identity clinic in England, and whether “affirmative care” for children who declare themselves trans may soon be a thing of the past. We discuss Wikipedia, which was once the Universe’s best encyclopedia, and how far it has fallen.

View on Odysee: https://odysee.com/@BretWeinstein:f/EvoLens135:4 View on Spotify (With video):  ***** In this 135th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens. This week, we discuss how, with regard to Covid, natural immunity compares to vaccine-induced immunity. Is the omicron variant unique in this regard? What science has been done to address the question? When is it acceptable to cite a preprint, and when must you absolutely, positively rely solely on peer-reviewed literature? What did the world do to deserve wrestling with this virus into an unspecified future? Are the Attorneys General of Missouri and Louisiana on to something? Political violence in this country is being pursued by the January 6 committee—but how much of it is being included? And: is peer review value added, or value subtracted? Also: how alarmist are glaciers? ***** Support the sponsors of the show: Thesis: personalized nootropics for motivation, creativity, confidence and more.

#133 Corruption, Efficacy, and the Rise of the Trad-Vaxxers (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
In this 133rd in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens. This week, we discuss the surge of Covid cases during the northern Summer. We talk about a new paper which finds that the mRNA vaccines against Covid do more harm than good, and the fact that both Canada, and the state of Washington, are implementing new vaccine mandates now, despite ever growing evidence that the Covid vaccines are not doing what we were told they would do. We ask whether Elmo knows what he’s talking about when he advocates for young muppets everywhere to get vaccinated. And Heather talks to an anti-vaxxer who turns out not to be an anti-vaxxer at all; she is a trad-vaxxer.  Then we discuss Jordan Peterson’s twitter suspension, and what “deadnaming” means, and whether it’s a real thing. Finally: what is the value of work? ***** Support the sponsors of the show: LMNT: Electrolyte drink mix with all the good salts, and none of the bad stuff.
