Episode #8 - Ecology (3/17/19)

Episode #7 - Personal Philosophies, The Ego, and Other Thoughts (2/16/19)

In this episode, we did something a little different: instead of talking about politics, we talked much more about how we think, the way we see the world, philosophy in general, and the ego. It was a lot of fun, so we will probably do more podcasts like this in the future!

Episode #4 - Guns and Public Intellectuals (10/21/18)

This week on Turn On The Mic, we discuss public intellectuals such as Jordan Peterson, Sam Harris, Bret Weinstein, Noam Chomsky, and several others including the so called Intellectual Dark Web as a whole. We talk about what they are doing, their criticisms, fair and unfair, and their impact. We also talk tangentially about foreign policy. Then we talk about guns, gun control, and violence in American culture. As always, any constructive criticism is much appreciated, and the same goes for thought provoking questions.Referenced Content: Bret Weinstein on Joe Rogan #1:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xq4Y87idawk&t=2s&pbjreload=10 Bret Weinstein and Jordan Peterson on Joe Rogan:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6G59zsjM2UI&t=129s Bret Weinstein on Joe Rogan #2:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LzAgSp_O03I&t=1s Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying on Joe Rogan:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HYJFgyqs0sM&t=26s Sam Harris on Violence:https://samharris.org/the-truth-about-violence/ Sam Harris and...
