Please support the podcast by taking our short listener survey: Watch the video of this episode here: PART 2 of 2 Fresh off his appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience (JRE), join me and Eric Weinstein in this frank discussion diving deep into philosophical and existential questions of nuclear war, UFOs, faith, belief, global conflict, antisemitism, the state of elite academia, geopolitical threats including American leadership in STEM, COVID annihilation and more. Eric holds a Ph.D. in mathematical physics from Harvard, but did not pursue the traditional academic route at all. He is an author, mathematician, economist, and Managing Director of Thiel Capital. Eric practices physics outside the academic establishment, and in that regard he is most famous for his geometric unity proposal. He is the host of The Portal podcast and known as one of the voices of the intellectual dark web. Weinstein is a vocal critic of modern academic hierarchies and advocates for advances in scientific theory over an emphasis on experimental results. He is the host of The Portal Podcast which can be found at The crisis in academia and the degradation of elite academic research institutions. Too much administration? Why the equity in diversity, equity and inclusion needs to die! Beyond communism? Is there a “Diversity Delusion” ( ).  Do we need a new academic model? What would it be? Can we build a new “container” for higher education and scientific research?  How should the priesthood of academia be remade? Re-establishing the concept of elitism.  Is America giving away its advantage to foreign influences and cheap research labor? Have we shortchanged PhD. labor? Is science talent underpaid? Is the American news media keeping us in the dark and distribution mis/dis-information? We need to know! The collapse of an academic pyramid the academic hunger games and selling out of american science. What do think about Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter. The relationship of free speech and antisemitism. Culture should be the limiting factor not limiting free speech. No solution to the unraveling of Twitter and the sensationalization of social media. Optimism for AI brains and a note on geopolitics. May global leadership be reborn!
