Bret Weinstein | DarkHorse Podcast
On The DarkHorse Podcast, we will explore questions that matter, with tools that work. Weekly episodes of "The Evolutionary Lens" are co-hosted with Heather Heying, in which we use an evolutionary toolkit to reveal patterns in nature--including human nature. Other episodes will feature Bret hosting long form discussions. Some guests will be well known, others obscure, but all of them are chosen because they have demonstrated unusual insight. The state and future of civilization will be a recurring theme, so buckle up!

#124 The Beauty and Tragedy of Earth (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
4/29/2022 • 1hr 55m
In this 124th 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 the biology, geology, and conservation of the Bahamas, particularly the Exumas islands. How do parrotfish turn coral into sand, what’s up with tropicbirds, and what does it mean that all Caribbean beaches have trash on them? Apologies for the sound quality during the videos. We also discuss the lifting of federal mask mandates on transportation; the Whit...
#123: Surviving the Poison Pill (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
4/16/2022 • 1hr 34m
In this 123rd 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 Elon Musk’s twitter play, and the implications for censorship, and the new public square. We discuss the modern impulse to make binaries of things that aren’t (e.g. political opinions), and to reject binaries that are real (e.g. sex). We talk about puberty blockers, and their non-reversibility, and whether “gender identity” is a real thing. And we discuss great evo...

#122 Retroactive Cancelation & Rights of Passage (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)

In this 122nd 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 cancellation for being woke, and for being medically woke. We discuss vitamin D, latitude, altitude, health and allergies.  We talk about teaching children how to think, not what to think, and about Margaret Mead’s retroactive cancellation. We discuss coming of age in Samoa, New Jersey, among the Amish, and in the era of Covid. We talk about what the Amish do a...
#121 Welcome to the Noble Psy-Op (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
4/3/2022 • 1hr 28m
In this 121st 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 the newly published Together trial on the efficacy of Ivermectin in treating Covid, and the media’s response to said publication. We discuss mass formation, as detailed in Mattias Desmet’s book, The Psychology of Totalitarianism (not “The Origins of Totalitarianism,” as Heather said during the podcast; that is the name of Hannah Arendt’s 1951 tome). We discuss the left’s eagerness to...

Bret is a savage debater! 👍👍
@wilsonhunt
23 Nov
Perhaps he is savage. He debates much the way I do, the way I was taught to—trained to? But, I don’t believe that savagery will win the day. Bret came off, in my subjective opinion, as the clear “winner” on facts and logic and I tend to agree with his hypothesis. But his guest came off as much kinder; and kindness must win the day.

you’ve put forth all (at least most) of the hypothesis he did in previous episodes. I can’t help wonder how different it would have gone if you said “I’ve put forth those hypothesis as factors, but none, even in aggregate, are sufficient to explain what is going on here.”

#146 Art, Science, and the Quest for Truth (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
I'm not sure I agree with the concept of admitting violating the TOS of Twitter if you haven't. I see the whack-a-mole-like response of setting up your own "fan account" as a better alternative. The noble lie argument is tough because vaccine extremists have used it repeatedly (and falsely) as a rationale, but it is clearly a tool that must be wielded on the battle field. That said, I worry about the unknown consequences of admitting fault where none exists.

As a fellow Washingtonian, I wish you a warm welcome to the state. I feel an unfortunate skepticism you will find western Washington has imbibed any less of the Kool Aid than western Oregon... Seattle, Olympia, and most of the surrounding areas have a severe problem with theft, vandalism, violent crime, vagrancy, and untreated mental illness combined with open drug use on the streets. But, the natural beauty of the Islands is undeniable and I hope that brings you great enjoyment and consolation!
