This Is A Test (Interlude) With Darrell Becker [PODCAST #660]

Last week a group of 1200+ medical influencers issued an open letter that aimed to transform public perceptions about protesting. In just one page, they explain how what was a criminally irresponsible, dangerous, and selfish act five weeks ago is now necessary and virtuous. And safe? In the letter they assure the non-medical-expert public: "as public health advocates, we do not condemn these gatherings as risky for COVID-19 transmission." This lead to a 45-minute monologue, followed by a one-hour discussion with Darrell about belief, confirmation bias, and adjusting our views based on new events and information. (Recorded May 17th, but still relevant) Discussed: [PODCAST] #338: Scientific Consensus vs. Dissent (Part 3) – Disciplined Minds Darrell’s website notmedicaladvice.co is a growing ...

[preview] Ideological Purity Tests

Free Bonus Friday Enjoy (and you will enjoy) a snip of one of our bonus productions for supporting listeners, including The Discomfort Zone, In Pursuit of Utopia, Picture of the Month Club, and other older selections. Today: In Pursuit of Utopia 5 - Committee of Public Safety The French Revolutionaries began by addressing genuine grievances and demanding liberation from oppressive structures. They declared equal rights for all men, and even addressed women's rights more than any other political movement had. Slavery was outlawed. But... once the new regime took power and killed the king, the people's rights were suspended in the name of national security. Neighbors ratted on neighbors, and blood filled the streets.

[BONUS] Protest and Programming – AUTONOMY Mastermind 4-21-20

The 1997 film Wag the Dog forever ruined photos like this for me. But if you've never seen Wag the Dog, enjoy this powerful piece of honest photojournalism. It allegedly shows nurses blocking protesters in Colorado, and more importantly, it clearly illustrates the ONLY two positions you can have on the COVID issue. So who's side are you on? The responsible science-and-medicine (dude has scrubs on!) heroes? Or the fat freedom-lovin' Trump-worshipers who are so angry and stupid that they're practically falling out of their gas-guzzling pickup trucks? What other choice could there be? A discussion about the current (largely misguided) lock-down protests, insulting media counter-narratives, use of celebrities in public perception management, competing groups of useful idiots, ideology, and ...

[BONUS] Why Is QAnon?

Picture: Katamari Damacy is a somewhat convoluted 2004 Playstation game where you're a ball of garage rolling around (with questionable goals), growing in size, and eventually absorbing larger and more valuable objects into the garage ball that is you. Thus, it is basically a video game template for the QAnon conspiracy theory.

Don’t Pursue Your Passion? (With Jim Hood) [PODCAST #646]

Part Three of the Test Drive Your Future college and career guidance series. In the previous episode we covered some questions we'd love to see more young people ask themselves: - Have you ever stopped to reflect on how you became who you are? To question your values, beliefs, where they came from? - Once you stop to think about it, is that what you really want? Or who you really are? Today, we discuss how applying self-discovery to career can actually be a serious misstep for young people. It's the familiar debate between passion and practicality. And while I say you ultimately want to be following your passions, you can't always start there. As Dirty Jobs host Mike Rowe ...
