The Israel Attacks: Beyond the Obvious with Efrat Fenigson

Efrat Fenigson is an independent Journalist, Podcaster, Israeli Citizen & Covid dissident. In the wake of the October 7th terrorist attacks on Israel, she has provided insight into the situation from inside Israel on X (Twitter). Bret and Efrat discuss the current state of affairs and the situation unfolding as we speak. Due to the timely nature of this episode, it is important to note that this was filmed at 8PM Israel time on October 10, 2023, and released several hours later.It is also of note that at the end of this recording, Efrat hears the sounds of rockets going off nearby. However there was also construction noise near Bret during the entire duration of the episode, not to be confused with sounds of war.Note: Hamas was founded in 1987, not 1967 as was inadvertently stated.Find Efrat on X (Formerly Twitter): @efenigson (https://twitter.com/efenigson)Find Efrat on Substack: https://substack.com/@efrat*****Find Bret Weinstein on X (formerly Twitter): @BretWeinstein. Join DarkHorse on Locals!

#188: Play the Hand You Are Dealt (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)

In this 188th 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 discuss medicine, scientific publishing, and just how bad things have gotten. The New England Journal of Medicine declined to publish a letter that would have provided valuable scientific context for a paper they recently published, and we discuss Bret’s reserve capacity hypothesis regarding the evolution of senescence and the relationship of telomere length to both aging and cancer. Then we discuss uterine transplants. What can be done for women who are born without uteruses who want to bear children of their own? What about for men who present themselves to the world as women? How about women who have transitioned “into” men but have decided that they would like to bear children after all? And who can get Continuing Medical Education credits from the American Medical Association for pretending that up is down, male is female, and reality is a thing of the past?

#187 Outsiders (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)

In this 187th 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 discuss why we are sitting outside: Covid does not transmit outside, and this has been clear for well over three years now. Then we discuss story and storytelling, paths diverging in a wood, and the need for all stories within one universe to reconcile. We discuss narrative, gender ideology, male and female typical modes of engagement, and science. We discuss new research that finds that mammals, but not birds, seem to like fruit that contains alcohol. And we discuss the Cartesian crisis that we are living through, and the Maui fires. ***** Our sponsors: MDHearingAid: Use promo code DARKHORSE to receive a significant discount off your order of already inexpensive, high-quality hearing aids, plus receive a free extra charging case. https://www.mdhearingaid.com Sole: Carefully designed, personally moldable footbeds for healthy feet.

#186: Besting the Experts (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)

In this 186th 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 discuss the mechanism of action by which the mRNA vaccines cause heart damage, following the publication of relevant research in Science Immunology. We discuss the nature of science, both empirical and theoretical, and why the eclipsing of theoretical science by the empiricists is dangerous. We discuss how fields become stuck, and why, once they get stuck, it is easy to best them. We discuss a new paper that describes two case studies of teenage males who have recurring myocarditis post mRNA vaccine. And we talk about social learning in bumblebees: they learn how to solve puzzles from others of their own kind.

Pharma: Not Their First Rodeo – Umberto Meduri & Paul Marik on DarkHorse

**At 6:35 Umberto says “in 2000” instead of the intended “in 2020”Umberto Meduri is a professor of pharmaceutical sciences, and a former professor of medicine at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, in Memphis Tennessee.Paul Marik is quadruple boarded in Internal Medicine, Critical Care Medicine, Neuro Critical Care, and Nutrition Science. Paul Marik was a tenured professor of Medicine, and chief of the division of pulmonary and critical care medicine at the University of Virginia Medical School.The pattern of blocking effective, safe, generic medications is clearly evident in the story of Umberto Meduri, an excellent physician and researcher who made a remarkable discovery about inflammation of the lung, and a safe and effective treatment with the potential to save hundreds of thousands, possibly millions of lives annually across the globe. The one problem: the drug in question was out of patent. Instead of receiving a Nobel Prize, Dr. Meduri had his career destroyed, and his reputation ruined with pure propaganda. This story, told for the first time here on The DarkHorse Podcast reveals the full depth of the capture of science and medicine, and allows us to see exactly how our response to Covid ended up the exact opposite of good science and medicine.Visit the FLCCC: www.flccc.net*****Our Sponsors:House of Macadamias: Delicious and nutritious macadamia nuts, in all sorts of configurations.

#185: Why Would They Lie About That? (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)

In this 185th 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 discuss new research that finds that 1 in 35 people getting a Moderna booster suffered heart damage, and ask whether it is only the spike protein, or also the mRNA platform more generally, that is at fault. We discuss the eradication of selective pressure in mRNA “vaccines” that do not include the actual pathogen. We discuss the effects of vaccine mandates on the U.S. military, both in terms of morale, and readiness, and return to an earlier discussion of the cheap trick used in research to reveal vaccine efficacy where there is none.

*****Watch on Rumble: https://rumble.com/v2t8xe0-bret-and-heather-177th-darkhorse-podcast-livestream.html?mref=256aqg&mc=eh4u2***** In this 177th 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. Picking up from last week, how has the book, Where There Is No Doctor, been updated for the 2022 edition? From breast-feeding to medicines, obesity to sterility, the book has remained excellent in many ways, while adopting a few modern errors. And in 1992, it recommended 5 vaccine shots for young children; now it recommends 15 - 17—why the change? Then: how can we bootstrap rules for how to think about in an increasingly confused era? We discuss important concepts that are easily abused—like “controlled opposition” and “the right side of history”—and the meaning of the Trump indictment and the Defender 23 NATO exercise in Europe. ***** Our sponsors: iHerb: carefully-curated selection of wellness products at terrific value on an easy to use site.

#174: Take Care (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)

In this 174th 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. The Press Secretary said this week that “These are our kids. They belong to all of us.” Conservatives had a predictable meltdown. Is she right, or is she wrong? What are the “sides” in this debate? Are there more than two sexes? Can a human transition between sexes? Are we sliding back towards regressive gender norms, and embracing social contagion and mental illness? With regard to a Florida bill restricting gender transition interventions for minors, an ER doc said that it is his job to “take care” of people, regardless of their beliefs. True. But what does it mean to take care? The two sides in this debate fundamentally disagree about what constitutes care. Finally, Bret invites Eliezer Yudkowsky to debate AI, LLM’s and complex vs. complicated systems. ***** Our sponsors: Sole: Carefully designed, personally moldable footbeds for healthy feet.

#164 Science, Race, Death, and (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)

In this 164th 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 science, race, death and sex. No, really. Science: why it is critical—in science and in sense-making in general—to separate the observation of a thing, from the interpretation of what it means. Race: why acting to protect yourself from individual bad actors is different from avoiding whole demographic groups. Death: Daniel Ellsberg, who released the Pentagon Papers, revealed a terminal diagnosis this week. We discuss him, his legacy, and death more generally. Sex: How can different lifestyles—e.g., “neo-trad” vs polyamorous—co-exist in a functioning society? Or can they? Also, we begin with a brief conversation about the Inca. *****Our sponsors: House of Macadamias: Delicious and nutritious macadamia nuts, in all sorts of configurations.

#158: Transphobes? (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)

In this 158th 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 cancellation. How do mobs get to people and coerce them? Once cancelled, how immune are you? What are the lessons learned when going through the looking glass? Also: why do searches for “alpha male” and “gender norms” yield such bizarre results? And: why are we allowing the phrase “Adult Attracted Minor” to spread, as if it isn’t normalizing pedophilia?

Beavers? Bret Weinstein Speaks with Jakob Shockey on the Darkhorse Podcast

Jakob Shockey, founder of the Beaver Coalition, has spent years researching and working to preserve, restore, and understand beaver habitats. He discusses with Bret the rarely discussed impacts of Beavers on all aspects of our world, and how we have thrown this equilibrium out of balance by trapping beavers and industrializing north America with little regard for preserving the factors that made it as hospitable as it has been.Find Jakob at his website: https://www.jakobshockey.com/Find the Beaver Coalition at: https://www.beavercoalition.org/*****Find Bret Weinstein on Twitter: @BretWeinstein, and on Patreon. Please subscribe to this channel for more long form content like this, and subscribe to the clips channel @DarkHorse Podcast Clips for short clips of all our podcasts. Check out the DHP store!

#157 On Beyond Antibodies (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)

In this 157th 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 antibodies. Why is the public health messaging around immunity focused on antibodies, when there is so much more to immunity? Also, the Department of Defense has finally dropped vaccine mandates for the military, and the federal government has affirmed that we are in the middle of a Covid-19 “health emergency” for the 11th consecutive time. The American Academy of Pediatrics is now suggesting the remedy of drugs (at 12 years old) and surgery (at 13) for children suffering from the “disease of obesity.” We’re no longer supposed to use the word field, according to both USC and Michigan’s Dept of Health and Human Services.

#156 Who Lost the Plot? (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)

In this 156th 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 new research on the mechanism of action of ivermectin against SARS-CoV2. We also discuss several organizations that have lost the plot: the Red Cross (with regard to who can donate blood), the American Museum of Natural History (with regard to who should be educating teens on the viral outbreaks), and a science conference (with regard to “non-normative sex expression in plants”). Finally, we ask whether Heather lost the plot back in the fourth grade when she categorized birds for a science project. ***** Sponsors: House of Macadamias: Delicious and nutritious macadamia nuts and bars.

#155 Unnatural Anti-Immunity (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)

In this 155th 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 USDA organic certification, Whole Foods, and why people make inconsistent decisions in their own lives. We talk about new research published in Science Immunology that finds that the degree to which people are mRNA vaccinated against Covid is correlated with a paradoxical immunological response (with regard to IgG4). We discuss new research published in The Lancet, which pretends to be about how women are faring with monkeypox, but is actually largely about men who are pretending to be women; we also review The Lancet’s final op-ed of 2022, which bemoans a “breakdown of trust in the state and in scientists.” Finally, we discuss how glass frogs become transparent: by sequestering blood in their livers. ***** Support the sponsors of this show: Thesis: personalized nootropics for motivation, creativity, confidence and more.

#149 If Not Amnesty, What? (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)

In this 149th 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 certainty. How certain are you of your positions—on the efficacy of masks, SARS-CoV2 origins, mRNA vaccines, Ukraine, elections, trans, CRT, the police? Has your certainty changed over time? We discuss whether people on a particular side of many fraught issues are more likely to have adopted a position, and a level of certainty, from authorities, and never had it change. We discuss apology, and what a real apology sounds like, and how it should be received. We also ask why so many cities, and those who live in cities, are celebrating mental illness and addiction, rather than working to actually help those afflicted. Being anxious and confused doesn’t mean that the rest of us should go along with your contorted worldview; in fact, it is our duty not to.NOTE: Tech issue with Livestream Q&A so it never happened.

#148 An Outbreak of Governance (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)

In this 148th 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 elections and democracy. What happens if we start investigating the relationship between pharma/Pfizer and the public health apparatus? Are there any patriots left in politics? We also discuss twitter, Elon Musk, and the “pause” being taken by some former advertisers on twitter. Then: what precisely is going on with the bivalent vaccines against Covid—is it whiz-bang scientific cleverness, or whiz-bang scientific recklessness?

#147 Why Musk Matters (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)

In this 147th 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 Colombia—what was it like in the 1990s, versus now? Building on our experiences in Latin America for the last few decades, and Bret’s trip to Colombia last week, we discuss approaches to Covid, to food, and to life. Also: hummingbirds. We also discuss the American Federation of Teachers, and PEN America—an organization that supports literature creation and production—and how their political biases are badly affecting their ability to report on mis- and dis- information. In related news: Elon Musk has taken custody of Twitter, and some people are freaking out. Finally: how are Donald Trump and Elon Musk not the same?Our store:  https://www.darkhorsestore.orgOur book: A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century: https://www.amazon.com/Hunter-Gatherers-Guide-21st-Century-Challenges/dp/0593086880/).

We often discuss how science and scientific institutions are failing; this week we discuss the failure of artistic institutions, as well as the political ideology of Wikipedia, which is destroying it from the inside.

#145 A Phestival of Phacts (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)

In this 145th 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 begin by discussing the interview between Jon Stewart and the Attorney General of Arkansas. Yes, protecting children does mean overriding the recommendations of several prominent organizations, including the American Medical Association (AMA), and the Endocrine Society, both of which we discuss as well. The President of the AMA says he’s working hard against medical disinformation, in part by participating in a “Festival of Fact-Checking” sponsored by self-appointed fact-checking organizations, and featuring science himself, Anthony Fauci. Then, with help from Barbara Ehrenreich’s excellent book on the topic, we discuss actual festivals, and the human history of ecstatic ritual, and ask whether an increase in depression coincided in human history with a decline in festivals. Finally, we discuss the virtues of driving around with your windows open.*****Our sponsors:ReliefBand: Get relief from nausea without drugs.

#144 It's Even Worse Than That (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)

In this 144th 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 prestigious scientific journal Nature, and its promotion of an anti-scientific perspective on sex and gender. We also discuss the not-so-prestigious journal Transgender Studies Quarterly, and its take on species concepts, and also on the “Trans*-Ness of Blackness.” We discuss the new research that finds that covid vaccines do affect women’s menstrual cycles, and also the shortcomings both in that research, and in the Washington Post’s reporting on it. Bret offers pro bono marketing help to Pfizer. And we talk about Great Britain’s medical regulatory agency (MHRA) moving from its role as “watchdog” of outside entities, to that of “enabler.”Our store:  https://www.darkhorsestore.orgOur book: A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century: https://www.amazon.com/Hunter-Gatherers-Guide-21st-Century-Challenges/dp/0593086880/).

#143 What Did They Know & When Did They Know It? (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)

In this 143rd 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 how some stories diagnose a system: What does it mean when a college declares its (non-racist) professors racist? What does it mean when journalists only recognize election fraud if it works against their team? What does it mean when “science” is invoked only to support foregone conclusions? Discussing these and more examples from the last two and a half years of Covid, we talk about the need for functional journalism, science, higher ed, and government, and of “skepticism kill switches.” How do you get people to stop being skeptical? Tell them that asking questions renders them a racist, a murderer, or a TERF.Our store:  https://www.darkhorsestore.orgOur book: A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century: https://www.amazon.com/Hunter-Gatherers-Guide-21st-Century-Challenges/dp/0593086880/).

#131 Becoming Allergic to Truth (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)

View on Odysee: https://odysee.com/@BretWeinstein:f/EvoLens131:b View on Spotify video: https://open.spotify.com/episode/3CXDqWrOJN7OgY5uFxoFI1 ***** 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. ***** Support the sponsors: Eight Sleep: Personalized thermoregulation while you sleep, and when you wake.

We discuss the failure of academia at all levels, including the fact that specialization has fractured knowledge, the processes of academia have been conflated with the processes of scientific investigation, and the corrupting influences of both governmental and private funding are nearly ubiquitous. We attest that those most enthusiastic about widespread adoption of novel medical technologies should be particularly interested in making sure that those who are injured by such technologies are recognized, and helped. And we discuss what a woman is, and why the very question—and the remarkable number of forms that answers take—points to the epidemic of sophistry that we have discussed before. ***** Support the sponsors of the show: Vivo Barefoot: Shoes for healthy feet—comfortable and regenerative, enhances stability and tactile feedback.

#111: On Dying, Lying, & Testifying (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)

In this 111th 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 talk about Covid, again. We talk about how our public health authorities talk about it, and whether VAERS is reliable, and how we would know. The Oregon Health Authority assures us that we “only have to wait five months” for a booster now. We talk about consilience, and how to assess claims of truth. We show a 2,000 year old skull out of Peru that has been…modified; and we show some street art out of DC. We talk about chicken that is actually plants; the successful Wari empire in pre-Incan South America who threw parties at which a combination of alcohol and hallucinogens were served; sperm whales learning how to avoid whalers; and a vast icefish breeding colony in Antarctica. Our book, A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century, is available from https://darvillsbookstore.indielite.org, (and everywhere books are sold, including amazon), but they have sold out of signed copies.Check out our store!

#101: When Doctors Were Scientists (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)

In this 101st 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.Beginning with a discussion of Room 101 from Orwell’s 1984, we then share excerpts from Ross Douthat’s forthcoming book, The Deep Place, with discussion of how we arrive at medical consensus, how long-term illness is often misunderstood by the medical establishment, and how weirdos on the internet can get things more right than the authorities. Rose and McCullough’s research paper on myocarditis was pulled by the journal with no explanation; the letter that came back from the editor had no info in it. The Washington Post makes the extraordinary claim that “the public is observing the scientific method up-close and in real time.” New research finds that obstetricians are human and fallible, and prone to the same kinds of cognitive distortions that we all are. We read and then discuss C.S. Lewis’s short 1948 essay, On Living in an Atomic Age. And we finish with a discussion of sea lions.Get your Goliath shirts right here: store.darkhorsepodcast.orgHeather’s newsletter, Natural Selections (subscribe to get free weekly essays in your inbox; next post: vitamin D deficiency and Covid-19): https://naturalselections.substack.comSupport the sponsors of the show:ReliefBand: Get relief from nausea without drugs.

#85: YouTube and the Truman Faux Medical Show (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)

In this 85th 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, Bret begins with a monologue on YouTube, Google, the allegory of the cave, David and Goliath, and more, before we switch off YouTube and stream solely from Odysee. We then discuss what counts as a positive Covid test from the CDC’s perspective, and why their answer differs depending on whether you’ve been vaccinated or not. How will we know how many vaccine breakthrough cases are happening given how the data are being handled? We discuss OSHA’s move to obscure data on breakthrough cases as well. We discuss a new paper (Walach et al 2021) that finds that, in a field study out of Israel, the mass vaccination campaign saved three lives for every two people who died from vaccinations. We discuss PEG (polyethylene glycol), which is an ingredient in far too many things, including the mRNA vaccines, and turns out to be toxic to tadpoles. And we briefly discuss the spike protein crossing the blood-brain barrier, before finally talking a bit about chapter 2 of our forthcoming book, A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century, and reading an excerpt on the origin of primates.Our book, A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century, is now available for pre-sale at amazon.

#71: Make Dopamine While the Sun Shines (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)

In this 71st 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 talk about trees and mental health and lockdowns and polar bears. Among other things. Does having trees outside your window help mitigate depression? If so, how close do they need to be? Does it matter what species they are? What’s so great about trees anyway? What about rivers or birds or volcanoes? Also: how do extended lockdowns affect teenagers in particular? What do we lose when we close schools, shut down organized sports, keep people from socializing? And: what do polar bears eat when melting sea ice keeps the seals out of reach? Duck eggs of course! Our book, A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century, is now available for pre-sale at amazon.

#64: The Data Are Going to be Phenomenal! (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)

In this 64th 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 some of the Biden administration’s early policy decisions: shutting down DAPL, rejoining the Paris Agreement on Climate, and affirming the rights of trans people (and in so doing putting the rights of women at risk). Rolling Stone (the magazine) jumps the shark (but is it a literal or a metaphorical shark?). We discuss how to survive a year of lockdowns if you’re a small business, calling on two anecdotes from Portland. We discuss what is happening at Powell’s, Portland’s massive, independent bookstore, and ask what it says about “mostly peaceful” protests. Tech censorship is continuing apace, with the removal of Game-B architects from Facebook. And a doctor advises us to “trust the science,” saying that “the data is phenomenal!” 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.

#62: Tyranny Comes at you Fast (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)

In this 62nd 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 discuss the value of gratitude, always but especially now. We pivot to the lab leak hypothesis, and what its discussion in the mainstream media means for the ability of society at large to consider what might be true regarding the origins of SARS-CoV2. We discuss what happened in the Capitol on January 6, and and the ensuing censorship and purges by the big tech platforms. We see the boot coming down hard and fast, with calls from U.S. Representatives to refocus our concern on events and enemies within our own borders. Finally, a reading from Thich Nhat Hanh’s 2012 book, Fear: Essential Wisdom for Getting Through the Storm. 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.
