In this 176th 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 decline of science at the FDA has become unmanageable—so argues BMJ, a leading medical journal, and they’ve got the receipts to back up the claim. Meanwhile, the FDA is advocating that we all work to stop the spread of misinformation, and that sunlight is the enemy. Also: the cost of silence. When editors at prominent publications hide the fact of their vaccine injuries, we all suffer. And a look back at the important book, Where There Is No Doctor—and its advice on vaccines, medications, and more.
