Bret Weinstein | DarkHorse Podcast
Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying

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!

In this 96th 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.In this episode, we discuss society, and how to have a functional one. Beginning with a discussion of 9/11, Bret then reads an excerpt from an essay he wrote after the November 2015 Paris attacks. We then share an excerpt from the final chapter of our forthcoming book, A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century, in which we discuss historical frontiers—geographic, technological, and transfer-of-resource. We call for a fourth kind of frontier, and discuss austerity and value, progress and discovery. We compare narrative with analysis, and how most people are not in fact stupid. We discuss the Maya, and what we can learn from them. We also discuss our new nemesis, the very hungry caterpillar.Get your Goliath shirts right here: store.darkhorsepodcast.orgHeather’s newsletter, Natural Selections (subscribe to get free weekly essays in your inbox): https://naturalselections.substack.comGet your Goliath shirts right here: store.darkhorsepodcast.orgHeather’s newsletter, Natural Selections (subscribe to get free weekly essays in your inbox): https://naturalselections.substack.comOur book, A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century, is now available for pre-sale at amazon.

In this 95th 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.In this episode, we take on culture and consciousness. Beginning with an excerpt from the penultimate chapter of our forthcoming book, we define the terms somewhat differently from how others define them, and discuss how human history can be understood as a tension between culture—received wisdom, orthodoxy, that which works in times of stability—and consciousness—with both its high error rate and promise of innovation, which works in times of change. We discuss collective joy, dancing in the streets,  Carnaval, astrology, taboos,  the sacred and the shamanistic, and hallucinogens. We talk about things that are literally false, metaphorically true. Get your Goliath shirts right here: store.darkhorsepodcast.orgHeather’s newsletter, Natural Selections (subscribe to get free weekly essays in your inbox): https://naturalselections.substack.comSupport the sponsors of this show:Allform: Get 20% off any order (of a beautiful sofa) from Allform at https://allform.com/darkhorse.ExpressVPN: VPNs keep you and your information safe.

In this 94th 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.In this episode, we discuss adulthood. Beginning with an excerpt from the Adulthood chapter of our forthcoming book, we discuss postmodernism and physical reality. We then discuss error correction, and explain our concern about the Carvallo study out of Argentina. We discuss cargo cult science, and Heather’s conversation with a liberal Christian outside of a farmer’s market: on being good to one another and connecting, the police and protests and leadership and forgiveness. We share a short excerpt from Elie Wiesel’s book Night, discuss diminishing returns curves, and vitamin D and other low-hanging pandemic fruit. Finally, we enjoin you to smile at people, put your phone down, and define your fights for whom and what you love, rather than against whom and what you hate. Get your Goliath shirts right here: store.darkhorsepodcast.orgHeather’s newsletter, Natural Selections (subscribe to get free weekly essays in your inbox): https://naturalselections.substack.comSupport the sponsors of this show:Vivo Barefoot: Shoes for healthy feet—comfortable and regenerative, enhances stability and tactile feedback.

In this 93rd 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.In this episode, we discuss school. Beginning with a discussion of our individual experiences in school, we then share an excerpt from chapter 10 (School) of our forthcoming book, A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century. What is school for, and what does it help make us become? Is genius common, or rare? What is the purpose of the scientific method? How is fear used to corral students (and others)? How does a relationship with risk help young people become more adept adults? Are our bodies necessary to our education, or can we be educated as if we were just brains in jars?Get your Goliath shirts right here: store.darkhorsepodcast.orgHeather’s newsletter, Natural Selections (subscribe to get free weekly essays in your inbox): https://naturalselections.substack.comSupport the sponsors of this show:MUD\WTR: is a coffee alternative with mushrooms and herbs (and cacao!) and is delicious, with 1/7 the caffeine as coffee.

In this 92nd 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.In this episode, we discuss childhood. Beginning with an excerpt from chapter 9 (Childhood) of our forthcoming book, A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century, we discuss what childhood is, what other organisms have it, and why it is important. We discuss plasticity in development, and the need to develop flexibility as a growing human. We discuss Lenore Skenazy (America’s Worst Mom!), and Let Grow, an organization dedicated to helping kids build real-world confidence, competence and openness. We discuss the need for play—real, unstructured play without interference from adults—and for risk. And we discuss the adaptive underpinnings of play.Get your Goliath shirts right here: store.darkhorsepodcast.orgHeather’s newsletter, Natural Selections (subscribe to get free weekly essays in your inbox): https://naturalselections.substack.comSupport the sponsors of this show:Four Sigmatic: Delicious mushroom coffee made with both real coffee and two species of mushrooms.

In this 91st 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.In this episode, we discuss co-morbidities that are associated with bad outcomes from Covid (e.g. obesity, anxiety), and how to take control of your own health. We discuss Joe Rogan and his detractors. The “Central Park Karen” story from May 2020 is revealed as something most people don’t know, by Bari Weiss and Kmele Foster in a recent episode of Honestly (Bari’s podcast). It is an amazing story—well worth listening to—and one lesson of it is that we are living in a conclusion-driven world—journalism, science, and justice are all succumbing. We discuss how (other) liberals are beginning to see the mainstream narrative as incoherent and dangerous. And we discuss plans to bike a century. Chapter 8 of A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century, our forthcoming book, is “Parenthood and Relationship.” We read an excerpt on pets and love and also grief, and discuss the value of sitting with the body of your loved one after they die. And finally, we discuss why breast is best, despite what manufacturers of formula would have you believe. Breastfeeding for the win.Get your Goliath shirts right here: store.darkhorsepodcast.orgSupport the sponsors of this show:ExpressVPN: VPNs keep you and your information safe.

In this 90th 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.In this episode, we discuss our essay, “On Driving SARS-CoV2 Extinct: Why We Need a Multi-Pronged Approach.” We discuss some of the misinformation that is circulating about…all of this. We then discuss sex and gender: beginning with an excerpt from chapter 7 of A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century—Sex and Gender—we discuss the division of labor, the effect of agriculture on gender roles, what sex and gender are, and whether it’s manly to weave. Finally, we discuss a few current events that are pertinent: the eradication of “male” and “female” from medical school curricula; the welcoming of transwomen to compete as and against women in the Olympics; and a short excerpt from Helen Joyce’s new book, Trans. No, we’re not transphobic, but we do see transactivism as a destructive force that is good for nearly nobody—including those rare people who are truly trans.Get your Goliath shirts right here: store.darkhorsepodcast.orgSupport the sponsors of this show:Public Goods: Get $15 off your first order at Public Goods, your new everything store, at https://www.publicgoods.com/darkhorse or with code DARKHORSE at checkout.OMAX CryoFreeze: Pain is necessary and adaptive, but sometimes it interferes with life.

In this 89th 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.In this episode, we begin by discussing a recent episode of the Making Sense podcast, in which Sam Harris and guest Eric Topol strawman both our position, and that of many people who are trying to engage honestly and carefully with scientific evidence. We discuss the evidence that having had Covid confers immunity against SARS-CoV2; the concerns of some doctors about granting EUAs for the covid vaccines to be used in children; and the selective pressure on pathogens that imperfect vaccination creates. We then discuss sleep: beginning with an excerpt from chapter 6 of A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century—Sleep—we discuss dreams and hallucinations, the use of entheogens across human cultures, and the role of different qualities and intensities of light in modulating melatonin, mood, and alertness at various times of day. Finally, we speak to whether the phase of the moon affects our sleep, and conclude by noting that right now, the moon is full.Get your Goliath shirts right here: store.darkhorsepodcast.orgSupport the sponsors of this show:ReliefBand: Get relief from nausea without drugs.

In this 88th 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.In this episode, we discuss a recent loss, and its interface with the on-line environment, before moving into the meat (and veg) of the episode: food! Beginning with an excerpt from chapter 5 of A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century—Food—we discuss the role of food in the lives of both modern and ancient humans. We discuss research that finds that the health and longevity of mid-Victorian era Britons was equal to or better than our own; and other research that addresses how not just food, but our microbiomes, are affected by the environments in which we live. We discuss the efffects of sterilizing our environments during Covid, and finally, how co-morbidities (“underlying conditions”) predict outcomes in Covid patients who are hospitalized.Get your Goliath shirts right here: store.darkhorsepodcast.orgSupport the sponsors of this show:AllForm: Get 20% off any order (of a beautiful sofa) from Allform at https://allform.com/darkhorse.ExpressVPN: VPNs keep you and your information safe.

In this 87th 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.In this episode, we discuss why SARS-CoV2 must be driven to extinction, why the currently available vaccines are unlikely to be able to do so, and why we therefore need additional tools in our toolkit. We address and rebut the recent Quillette article, which contained copious journalistic and scientific errors, and excluded evidence relevant to the questions under discussion. A written response will be published soon as well.

In this 85th 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.In this episode, Bret begins with a monologue on YouTube, Google, the allegory of the cave, David and Goliath, and more, before we switch off YouTube and stream solely from Odysee. We then discuss what counts as a positive Covid test from the CDC’s perspective, and why their answer differs depending on whether you’ve been vaccinated or not. How will we know how many vaccine breakthrough cases are happening given how the data are being handled? We discuss OSHA’s move to obscure data on breakthrough cases as well. We discuss a new paper (Walach et al 2021) that finds that, in a field study out of Israel, the mass vaccination campaign saved three lives for every two people who died from vaccinations. We discuss PEG (polyethylene glycol), which is an ingredient in far too many things, including the mRNA vaccines, and turns out to be toxic to tadpoles. And we briefly discuss the spike protein crossing the blood-brain barrier, before finally talking a bit about chapter 2 of our forthcoming book, A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century, and reading an excerpt on the origin of primates.Our book, A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century, is now available for pre-sale at amazon.

In this 84th 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—now for the first time live on Odysee! In this episode, we discuss chapter 1 of our forthcoming book, A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century, and read an excerpt on culture and consciousness, and the need for generalists in a hyper-specialized world. Bret then introduces a new term: Asch-troturfing, to help explain some of the problems on social media (and beyond). We briefly discuss a new meta-analysis that reviews the evidence for the efficacy of Ivermectin as both prophylaxis and treatment for Covid-19. We discuss the perils of the politicizing of science, and also the perils of bringing market forces directly into contact with scientific endeavors, as the grant-university pipeline in the U.S. has done for many decades now. We discuss what science is, and how varied it can look. We mock PolitiFact for its absurdity. And we read a few excerpts from Nineteen-Eighty-Four, in honor of this moment in time, and this being episode #84.Our book, A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century, is now available for pre-sale at amazon.

In this 81st 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.

We discuss lab leak hypothesis, why intellectual credit matters, and why the press needs to do better. Then: get physically active for a better outcome if you get Covid. And: trans ideology comes to kickboxing, and also to taxonomy, with an ant named they. Then: a poem found in NW Portland.
