Dating, Gender, & Virtue Signaling with Sarah Haider & Meghan Daum [AD FREE - AUDIO + VIDEO]
My guests today are Sarah Hader and Meghan Daum, who co-host the podcast called A Special Place in Hell. Sarah, Megan, and I talk about the difficulty of dating in New York City when you have heterodox politics.
I talk about how the death of my mother influenced my attitude toward science and alternative medicine. We talk about social contagion and gender dysphoria. We talk about Sarah Hader's origin story as an ex-Muslim. We talk about Meghan's origin story as a hater of phoniness. We talk about Robin Hansen's great book, "The Elephant in the Brain", and the evolutionary logic of virtue signaling. We talk about split-brain patients, the bad incentives facing public intellectuals, lab leaks, and much more.
I really recommend you all check out their podcast called A Special Place in Hell. If you like what I'm doing here, then you're probably going to like what they're doing over there.
