In this 132nd 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 overturning of Roe v. Wade, and how both individuals and political entities on both “sides” are responding to it. We discuss the implications of whether other organisms might use abortifacients, and how fuzzy categories are revealed with the discovery of a giant bacterium. We discuss whether twitter is sanctioning violence, while saying that they are doing the opposite. And we discuss the recent reveal that the CDC, despite seeming to claim the opposite for well over a year now, is now acknowledging that they have not been analyzing adverse events from the Covid vaccines.
