    Great Podcast!
    I liked it.
    The most powerful part was when you said Knowledge is what we tell you it is!
    I see so much of that when it comes to Covid-19
    It’s as if they have forgotten the scientific method.
    challenge ideas!
    Using one sided science for political power is disgusting.

    Great interview, thank you.
    James Lindsay, along with Helen Pluckrose & Peter Bogosian are heroes in the fight against the precepts of “Critical Race Theory” that is engaged in the decimation of pillars supporting western culture.
