In this 154th 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 new Newspeak, as promoted by Stanford and its list of very bad words. While recognizing that, in a few rare cases, they have a point, overall this list and its enforcers are batshit crazy. And what it leads to is worse: we discuss title IX compliance officers, the dude who thinks it’s fine to hang out in women’s spas and other spaces, and the savage woman-hating multiple murderer who is likely to end up in a women’s prison. None of this is okay. ***** Our sponsors: Seed: Start a new healthy habit today with Seed probiotics.
