In this 131st 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 why so many things, in modernity, and right now in particular, are labeled the opposite of what they truly are. What we are told is safe, is toxic; we are told we must do, we should not. How did this happen? Beginning with a tale of scientific discovery in the 1990s and early 2000s—involving telomeres and cancer and senescence and mice—we arrive at one answer: if the powers-that-be have insight, they are better served by keeping that insight to themselves, by refusing to share it. And so: all the newspapers, all the universities, all the everything, are failing. We also discuss baby formula—why you might want or need it, and share a recipe from a naturopath that will be far better than anything you can (or cannot) find on the shelves. And we discuss fathers: genetic fatherhood, biological fatherhood, cultural fatherhood. There are many ways to be a good father.
