Pinker 2: The Pinker-files

July 22, 2019

Okay, some housekeeping: this might be the episode where you can hear our brains breaking. Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards),  Nate (@inthesedeserts), and Alice @AliceAvizandum  discuss Elon Musk’s strange fixation on preventing SkyNet, new revelations that place Steven Pinker in Jeffrey Epstein’s plane on multiple occasions, and a Guardian article in which Alastair Campbell devotes an entire column to someone who was nice to him in the comments section. Seriously. Amid all this majestic content, Milo goes on a Trump-voice rampage and we basically lose our minds. And then the power goes out. You will probably love this, but you might wind up hating us!
