Thumbs up Re: Science Saturday: Celestial Couch Potatoes (John Horgan & George Johnson)

I've seldom posted over the years, but wanted to join others in expressing my appreciation for George and John, and BHTV more generally. But really, (although I know the posters on this thread speak...

Re: Values Added: Millennials and Morality (Robert Jones & Michael B. Dougherty)

I'm pretty sure you're massively misunderstanding Michael's worldview, and not very good at evaluating when he's happy about something.

Re: Big Government Libertarianism (Glenn Loury & Jim Pinkerton)

What would it even mean to be the "Clarence Thomas of the Paleo and Neo right"? Isn't Clarence Thomas himself already on the right? And regardless of what you think of him, he's a judge, not an...

Re: The Week in Blog: Intellectual Meat (Garance Franke-Ruta & Matt Lewis)

Was it just me, or is there an awkward first-date feel to this whole DV? I feel like both Matt and Garance might be happier with others.

Re: Prediction-Free Oscar Edition (Alyssa Rosenberg & Latoya Peterson)

I don't quite follow Latoya's criticism of Barbara Bush. Latoya had just said that, in the African-American community, there was fear that the movie painted black people in a stereotypical light. ...

Re: Bzzzzt!

I'm sorry, but that's really just hyper-pedantic nonsense. The word "decimate" in English does not not primarily mean "went through an army and killed every tenth man as punishment," but rather...

Re: Something Happening in Iran (Flynt Leverett & Barbara Slavin)

Yeah...can someone explain why Flynt's view is the "liberal" one, and Barbara's the "conservative" in contemporary American politics?

Re: Not Gay, Just a Hypocrite and Not Worth Listening To

So now a "chicken hawk" is any civilian who has any kind of opinion about any military issue? Sorry, civilians are in charge of the military, and civilians get to have opinions about what the...

Re: UN Plaza: Sudan Policy Reviewed (Mark Leon Goldberg & Sam Bell)

Did Matthew Lee and Mark Goldberg have a falling out? There hasn't been an old-fashioned UN Plaza in months, it seems like. Although Lee has been allowed to branch out to host his own shows with...

Re: Percontations: Philosophy and the String Wars

I've watched most of the seeming endless series of diavlogs about string theory/cosmology/whatever, and I still don't know what it is/they are (or have much more interest in learning). I do wish...

Re: Percontations: A Tale of Data, Theory, and Coral Reefs (Greg Laden & David Dobbs)

Impressive how seriously these two took the time limit--I wonder if they thought it was going to be cut off if they went over.

Re: UN Plaza: Trying to Go Highbrow (Mark Leon Goldberg & Matthew Lee)

That segment was worth it if only for Mark's eyeroll when Matthew made the analogy to Rwanda. I had almost zero interest in UN affairs before I started watching this 8 or so months back, but these...
