This episode our main topic is Julia Galef's new book. Julia is a much better podcaster than us, and also probably a better author. Her new book scout mindset is an exploration on how to seek the truth instead of just defend your pre-existing views. Brian pronounces rhetoric incorrectly a lot and Chris fails to make fun of him because he wasn't yet confident of his preferred pronunciation.

Big list of coffee bets

Jared Diamond - author of guns germs and steel

Russ Roberts interviewing  psychologist Emiliana Simon-Thomas of UC Berkeley

Pi Hole. Stop ads getting anywhere near your internet (except youtube ads sadly)

Suicides down for 2020, misery loves company?

We may debate forever if there's a great stagnation. Gwern has a solid list of improvements since the 90s

Centre for applied rationality - Julia Galefs day job maybe? I'm not really sure.
