#137 Hostile Work Environments & Folks Who Love Them (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
Manage episode 336901523 series 2524025
In this 137th 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.
This week, we discuss Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in the academy, and ask: does DEI belong in science? If the answer is no, are we contributing to a hostile or alienating workplace? We argue that it is the DEI enthusiasts who are creating hostile and alienating spaces for all of the rest of us. Then: laboratory of the self, and some hypotheses about pain perception, illness, and pathogens. Finally: land sharks. Who are they, what do they want, and how do they get where they’re going?
