Science, philosophy, psychology, quantum physics, religion. In all these areas, we see the world based on what comes from others. Which means we're actually thinking with somebody else's head - not necessarily our own. And how much of those philosophies, ideas and theories are true?

We'll explore this rich and provocative territory in this podcast. Email me about your thoughts at email@example.com

One of the oldest myths of mankind is that during a time of penultimate crisis, ancient heroes will return to the land in order to rescue society from its own blind and self-destructive foolishness.

How do we decide? The in-out referendum on the UK’s membership of the European Union on June 23 is a once-in-a-generation vote. For some of us it’s a matter of gut political instinct: we are natural inners or outers. But for many, coming to an informed decision on how to vote is a challenge, given the swirl of claims and counterclaims being made by pro-EU campaigners on one side, and Brexit supporters on the other. Every day there’s a fresh round of media stories, with ‘Project Fear’ warning us of the dire effect Brexit would have on everything, from jobs to farming and the NHS, followed by a slew of denials by the out campaign along with their own scare stories, such as the horrific crimes committed by EU citizens living in Britain under the freedom of movement right. Just give us the facts, people cry. How would Brexit affect trade, for example? Is it true that Britain would be in limbo for ten years while our existing deals with other countries are renegotiated, or would we move ...
Introduction: [2:00] - An Important Message About Gord Downie of The Tragically Hip Question 1: [16:37] - “I am a 24-year-old graduate student in medicinal chemistry/chemical biology. I had been admitted to various different schools and had multiple offers from individual labs upon finishing my undergrad degree. I eventually made the best decision I could have with the information that had been made available at the time and I picked a specific medicinal chemistry/chemical biology lab that seemed to have copious amounts of both money and publications. The reason I chose this lab was that it seemed to be the best place to propel my career forward despite it being 5,000km away from my home, family, and friends.“ “As I was gearing up for the long and grueling five years that were to come, I saw the lab I had chosen for what it really was. The reason this particular lab had so much money and fame was because he was forging his results. And presented these erroneous results to both priv ...
Question 1: [1:45] - “Why would determinism preclude free will? Aren't those two ideas perfectly compatible with each other?” Question 2: [37:57] - “What are your thoughts on the advent of social media in relation to the attitudes, behaviors, and rationales of the general population of western civilization? As in, what impact do you think social media has had on the way people live their lives and choose their actions, and would you say it has been brought more benefits, or more unintended, negative 'side effects' to western society?” Question 3: [1:09:38] - "Is university still worth it? Many of my friends and cohorts from high school have gone off to continue their education at university. I'm one of the last not too. My chief reasons are not wanting to are becoming strapped down with decades of debt, getting a degree that will lose its value as more and more people are funneled through education, and finally, not surrounding myself with Social Justice Warriors that end up turnin ...
In 1989, the political theorist Francis Fukuyama pronounced that liberal democracy, on the American model, as the inevitable finish line of political evolution around the world: What we may be witnessing is not just the end of the Cold War, or the passing of a particular period of postwar history, but the end of history as such: that is, the end point of mankind’s ideological evolution and the universalization of Western liberal democracy as the final form of human government. And millions of people agreed: that our own relatively free, fair, stable, and accountable model was the political wonder of the world. (Or we told ourselves more cynically that it was the worst system of all, “except all those other forms that have been tried.”) Would it surprise you to find out that—through the years of Bush, Obama, and now Trump—Americans have begun to lose confidence in democracy? According to new research by political scientists Yascha Mounk and Roberto Foa, one in six Americans would ap ...

Hey, PEL Listeners, go subscribe to Nakedly Examined Music at nakedlyexaminedmusic.com or on iTunes! Craig led Shudder to Think from 1986 to 1998 and has since had a solo career and done soundtrack work. Shudder to Think was a band that started as part of Washington DC's "hardcore" scene, but challenged musical conventions to try to achieve U2-level success with Captain-Beefheart-level weirdness (they failed). We discuss their song "Pebbles" from Get Your Goat (1992), then go post-Shudder to "Show Down" by Craig's short-lived pop-dance band, Craig Wedren & Baby. Then we talk about working on assignment on "I Am the Wolf, You Are the Moon," for Wet, Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp. We also listen to "Heaven Sent" from Crag's album Wand (2011).
Melvyn Bragg and guests discuss Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, ten sentences long, delivered at the dedication of the Soldiers' National Cemetery at Gettysburg after the Union forces had won an important battle with the Confederates. Opening with " Four score and seven years ago," it became one of the most influential statements of national purpose, asserting that America was "conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal" and "that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom-and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth." Among those inspired were Martin Luther King Jr whose "I have a dream" speech, delivered at the Lincoln Memorial 100 years later, echoed Lincoln's opening words. With Catherine Clinton Denman Chair of American History at the University of Texas and International Professor at Queen's University, Belfast Susan-Mary Grant Professor of American History at ...

Episode Audio Episode Notes David and Tamler have their first real fight in a while over an article defending "social mixing"--distributing babies randomly across families such that no infant is genetically related to the parents who raise them.. Then they discuss a study published in Science in 2013 in which participants could earn money if they agreed to let mice be killed in a gas chamber. Do free markets threaten our moral characters and cause us to abandon our principles? What are mechanisms behind this phenomenon when it happens? And why does David hate mice so much?

Still image then gives way to the moving image as Matthew considers what the much heralded new Carry On film may have to offer and what the original films tell us about the historical and social context from which they emerged.

We’re going to ask ourselves what death actually is, it’s not as straightforward as it seems, but more importantly whether we need to fear it and whether we should try to push back against it. 1. What we won’t talk about. 2. Death is nothing. 3. Actually it’s an obstacle. 4. No need to justify wanting to live. 5. The end of aging.
Chris and Trey discuss the latest abominations from the social justice nimrods. They discuss alleged "rape culture", "Fat shaming", "jewsplaining", "mansplaining", empathy for pedophiles, trans-folk, etc, etc, etc. Join us on the Battlefield.
Maia Szalavitz is an author and award-winning journalist specializing in science, public policy, and addiction treatment. Most famous of her several books was her 2006 exposé, Help at Any Cost: How the Troubled–Teen Industry Cons Parents and Hurts Kids. Her latest book is Unbroken Brain: A Revolutionary New Way of Understanding Addiction. As a recovering addict herself, Szalavitz knows about the stigma of addiction first hand. She spent much of her teen and young adult life addicted to drugs like heroin and cocaine, but now with over 20 years of sobriety under her belt she’s dedicated a large portion of her career to investigating and reporting addiction treatment. Szalavitz’s research suggests that addiction is actually an emotional learning disorder, which, if true, could revolutionize not only the way we treat addiction but also the way we perceive addiction treatment.
