#69: Evolution of Power (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
In this 69th 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. In this episode, we begin by discussing power, race and social media, specifically regarding the app Clubhouse. We talk about how Covid outcomes are affected by preexisting conditions, such as obesity and hypertension. We ask: should children be vaccinated, and are the reasons being proposed to do so justified? We review a truly sexist obituary of an esteemed scientist, and ask what should be done about it. And we review a new finding in octopi.  DarkHorse merchandise now available at: store.darkhorsepodcast.org  Find more from us on Bret’s website (https://bretweinstein.net) or Heather’s website (http://heatherheying.com).  Become a member of the DarkHorse LiveStreams, and get access to an additional Q&A livestream every month.

475: Is It Possible to Assuage Narcissistic Rage? | Feedback Friday
Your significant other of six years has a narcissistic personality disorder and an unhealthy relationship with alcohol. Even when sober, she can turn on a dime and engage in narcissistic rage, which includes venomous, disrespectful rants and the destruction of expensive artwork. It seems obvious that you should break up with her, but she's unemployable and unable to care for herself, and living arrangements for whoever leaves would be difficult to secure in the midst of the pandemic. What's your next move? We'll do what we can to help assuage narcissistic rage and more here on Feedback Friday! And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Gabriel Mizrahi (@GabeMizrahi) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let's dive in! Full show notes and resources can be found here: jordanharbinger.com/475 On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: * What are you avoiding just because the desired outcome would take longer than you'd like? * What do you do when your significant other ruins your stuff in fits of narcissistic rage but breaking up is logistically difficult? [Thanks to friend and therapist Kim Seltzer for helping us field this one!] * You're excited about becoming a first-time parent, but you're worried it won't allow you the time to do your full-time job and pursue a career in competitive golf. Does this make you a selfish jerk? * An opening for advancement has come up at your company, but you're not sure you're ready for it just yet. Should you go for it anyway, or wait until you've got more experience under your belt and hope that opportunity knocks again? * While you're not currently disabled, you do have multiple sclerosis that will gradually incapacitate you to some degree over time. Are you obligated to disclose this on a job application? [Thanks to once-adversary, now-friend, and attorney Jeremy Golan for helping us with this one!] * Have any questions, comments, or stories you'd like to share with us?

Patricia Fara on Newton, Scientific Progress, and the Benefits of Unhistoric Acts
Patricia Fara is a historian of science at Cambridge University and well-known for her writings on women in science. Her forthcoming book, Life After Gravity: Isaac Newton's London Career, details the life of the titan of the so-called Scientific Revolution after his famous (though perhaps mythological) discovery under the apple tree. Her work emphasizes science as a long, continuous process composed of incremental contributions–in which women throughout history have taken a crucial part–rather than the sole province of a few monolithic innovators. Patricia joined Tyler to discuss why Newton left Cambridge to run The Royal Mint, why he was so productive during the Great Plague, why the “Scientific Revolution” should instead be understood as a gradual process, what the Antikythera device tells us about science in the ancient world, the influence of Erasmus Darwin on his grandson, why more people should know Dorothy Hodgkin, how George Eliot inspired her to commit unhistoric acts, why she opposes any kind of sex-segregated schooling, her early experience in a startup, what modern students of science can learn from studying Renaissance art, the reasons she considers Madame Lavoisier to be the greatest female science illustrator, the unusual work habit brought to her attention by house guests, the book of caricatures she’d like to write next, and more.
