The Biskeptical Podcast #46: Scientific Racism and Atheist Movement Drama

On today’s episode, we’re going to first talk about the recent debate between Sam Harris and Vox writer Ezra Klein about Harris’ interview with Charles Murray, co-author of the infamous book The Bell Curve. We’ll talk about what both Harris and Murray got wrong, and go a little bit into the science behind intelligence and genetics. For the second half of the show, we’ll talk about how stress from all the atheist movement drama led me to a suicidal episode last week, and whether or not being part of the movement is worth it.

The Biskeptical Podcast #44: A Stormy Rexit

(This episode came out on Friday, but I was on the road to NaNoCon at the time, so that’s why I’m posting it here today.)

Today on the show we first play catch up on the latest drama involving President Trump’s alleged affair with porn star Stormy Daniels and how the White House is trying to shut her up. Then during the second half we discuss the recent firing of Rex Tillerson, who Trump wants to replace him with, and what this might mean for foreign policy.
