In this 134th 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 Howard Zinn, scones, and the existence of God. We discuss accidents and injury, and Bret proposes a hypothesis for why his recent bicycle accident happened. We discuss memory, frame rate, electric unicycles, and motorcycles. We discuss the moon: the full moon, tidal locking, Oliver Sacks, viewing the Earth from outside of itself, and Apollo 11, which launched 53 years today, and would result, a few days later, in humanity’s first moon landing. We discuss isopropyl alcohol: it is not only a wonderful antiseptic, disinfectant, and cleanser, but also, apparently, an effective stunner of flies.
