Re: Aw, Nuts
I think the difference between Loury/McWhorter, Wright/Kaus, and the Science Saturday guys is that there is a preexisting relationship and an expertise (exempting Kaus, who's a serves as effective foil for RW) that allows ideas to develop through the conversation. The Free Wills have an element of this too. The ideas gets teased out through the hour and into an ongoing series of conversations over months.
Too many of the blogger vs. blogger vlogs are like bad conversations with each person reviving some pre-prepared blog post, then a bit of disagreement, and then the other person offer some sort of canned idea, and repeat.
