Bret and Heather 150th DarkHorse Podcast Livestream: The Time Traveling Money Printer
In this 150th 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 myriad stories of failure and corruption might be linked together beneath the surface by systems of power that know more about where we are headed than we are being told. With the collapse of FTX this week, connections between woke ideology and covid ideology have been made clear. A coming centralized bank digital currency is implicated as well. We also discuss twitter, and whether it is “just” a social media platform, or if it has a chance of replacing legacy media in bringing us the news. Then: how should doctors respond to those who ask for Covid vaccine exemptions? And finally: do cats understand when humans are talking to them? Are cats savvy enough to ignore strange men who give orders? Are humans?
