#166: Corruption, Capture, & Narrative Control (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
Manage episode 358326230 series 2524025
In this 166th 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 ants and agriculture, coevolution and symbiosis, the mainstream media and SARS-CoV2 origins, raccoon dogs and Kristian Andersen. We talk corruption, capture, and narrative control. We finish with two heartening stories about resistance, and coming together, that remind us of how to be good and human to one another.
