EPISODE 76: THE SNUGGLE TO SURVIVE

2013-07-12_whgl_07_07_13Part two of the conversation from last week: Matt brings an article about ‘The Intercept’, a Russian game show where contestants are given a free car…which is only the beginning. Matt asks Aaron about a Nietzsche quote, which sprawls into a conversation about morality, questions of agency, Cotard’s syndrome, and the brain in general.Aaron talks about an argument suggesting cooperation is evolutionarily selective in humans. Despite what you’ve heard or what you’ve come to expect, humans might be kind of, sort of okay. They discuss senses and language as technology, which then raises the topic of the singularity and offshoots of the human species. Dub talks about his trip to Vegas, Aaron talks about moving to Vancouver and Matt talks about his Alpha Brain.

EPISODE 65: THANK GOD FOR SMALL MIRACLES

2013-03-08_whgl_08_03_131Matt and Dub return this week, talking about the meteor that dropped on Russia and how all Russians have sweet dash cams for insurance fraud and shitty police. This transitions into another short convo about Kerbal Space Program, before Matt weaves the tale of his wisdom teeth removal. They’re 2 for 2 on that wisdom teeth shit.Dub remembers a monster dump, while Matt fills us in on a new product that will change your life; The Squatty Potty.Fun facts all around, including the research done by a handful of people to solve the It Was a Good Day mystery. Dub talks about consciousness after decapitation and the drug DMT, and theorizes about near death and back from the dead experiences. They then get real about how professionals in the medical community should be able to do research on whatever the hell they want without government interference as long as it shows promise to help patients.
