Open Thread – Brown Pundits

Talk about what you want. I assume even if you are dying of COVID-19 it will be something about Hindu/India vs. Muslims/Pakistan.

(we’ll be recording a podcast on COVID-19 with Kushal Mehra if you have any questions for him)

Talk about whatever you want. Perhaps the Pakistani readers can brag about how they surpass Indians in covid-19 infections?

Browncast Episode 83: An evolutionary anthropologist on the GRE, Bo Winegard and the nature of his discipline

Filed under: Open Thread — Razib Khan @ 1:23 am

Another BP Podcast is up. You can listen on LibsynAppleSpotify,  and Stitcher (and a variety of other platforms). Probably the easiest way to keep up the podcast since we don’t have a regular schedule is to subscribe to one of the links above! d

You can also support the podcast as a patron. The primary benefit now is that you get the podcasts considerably earlier than everyone else. This website isn’t about shaking the cup, but I have noticed that the number of patrons plateaued a long time ago.

I would though appreciate more positive reviews! Alton Brown’s “Browncast” has 30 reviews on Stitcher alone! Help make us the biggest browncast! At least at some point.

This week I talk to Cody Ross, an evolutionary anthropologist with strong opinions on the GRE (against) and the firing of Bo Winegard (sad about). But when it comes to what his field of study is…that’s a little vaguer.

In relation to the GRE discussion, Cody has provided a document with references. Enjoy!

In ancient Republican Rome a dictator was appointed for a fixed time for a fixed task. Lucius Cornelius Sulla was one of those dictators. If you haven’t, I recommend Sulla: The Last Republican.

I’ve Been Fired. If You Value Academic Freedom, That Should Worry You. The headline reminds me of a Neoplatonic philosopher in 500 A.D. writing “I’ve been persecuted. If you value the old gods that should worry you.” “Academic freedom” is a 20th-century concept that persists as a shadow. It is basically a dead-letter. The intellectual project exists to serve power, so power one must become for it to serve you. You will never out-argue your jailer, they are always correct. Make them your prisoner, that is the only way to freedom and liberty.

The Pied Pipers of the Dirtbag Left Want to Lead Everyone to Bernie Sanders. I listen to Chapo. They’re funny, if a bit repetitive and unfair. The author of the piece, Nellie Bowles, is a scion of California’s landed aristocracy. There is a class war going on. Just know which side everyone is on…
