Welcome to another episode of Conversations with Coleman.    My guest today is Tom Bilyeu. Tom and I discussed the problem with 'self help', the benefits of believing things that aren't true as a mechanism of self-improvement, the side effects of taking pride in one's intelligence as well as cancel culture, political correctness and so much more. #Ad  This week's episode is sponsored by our friends at Indeed.

Welcome to another episode of Conversations with Coleman.  My guests today are Shelby and Eli Steele. Shelby Steele is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, and the author of many books, including 'The Content of our Character', which won him the National Book Critics Circle Award. Eli Steele, who is his son is a documentary filmmaker whose films include 'How Jack Became Black', 'What's Bugging Seth?', and 'What Killed Michael Brown?', which is the subject of today's conversation.   The main topic of today's conversation is the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson in 2014 and all the related issues. One note here, Eli Steele is deaf but is able to lip-read over zoom. So understanding his speech might take a bit more focus than normal, but it's very worth it. I really enjoyed this conversation, and I hope you do too. #Ad I'd like to say a special thank you to Indeed for supporting this week's episode.

Welcome to another episode of conversations with Coleman.    My guest today is Dr. Michael Sanchez. Michael is a criminal justice scholar with over 20 years of experience in the criminal justice system. He's been a detention officer, booking officer, patrol officer, patrol sergeant, administrative supervisor, training coordinator, firearms instructor, investigator, Lieutenant, Deputy Chief of Police, an international police officer with the UN in Kosovo, and regional commander for the UN police in Haiti. He has a masterpiece officer license in the state of Texas, a bachelor's degree in police science from Ottawa University, a master's degree in criminal justice administration from Utica College, and a Ph.D. in Business Administration with a specialization in criminal justice from North Central University. He's been teaching at Utica College since 2012 and he's also a full-time lecturer for the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley in the criminal justice department. So I can honestly say this was the most interesting conversation I've had about policing in my life. And this conversation took place many months ago when the death of George Floyd and the subsequent protests and riots were in the foreground of everyone's minds. So I was very excited to talk to someone who had both academic knowledge of policing and practical experience with it.   Michael and I talk about the difference between policing in America and international policing, the steady stream of videos of unarmed Americans getting killed by cops including Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and Rayshard Brooks. We talk about the mechanics of shooting and why cops tend to fire so many bullets, the difference between tasers and guns, how to hold bad cops accountable and so much more. #Ad - I'd like to say a special thank you to 1440 for supporting this week's episode.

Welcome to another episode of Conversations with Coleman.  My guest today is Michael McCullough. Michael is a professor of psychology at the University of California, San Diego where he directs the evolution and human behavior laboratory. He studies the functions of human behavior and emotion using the conceptual tools of evolutionary psychology and cognitive science. Michael has conducted research on forgiveness, revenge, gratitude, empathy, religion, and morality. He's the author of Beyond Revenge: The Evolution of the Forgiveness Instinct, and The Kindness of Strangers: How a Selfish Ape Invented a New Moral Code, which is the focus of today's conversation.  Michael and I talk about the field of evolutionary psychology and why it's considered controversial. We talk about Richard Dawkins and the selfish gene revolution, the evolutionary roots of altruism towards strangers, and we talk about the criticism that evolutionary psychology is a collection of 'just-so' stories rather than actual science. We also discuss the evolution of welfare spending over the past few centuries and about how it's possible for human societies filled with selfish apes to become more altruistic. #Ad -Today's episode is sponsored by our friends 1440.

Welcome to another episode of Conversations with Coleman.  My guest today needs no introduction, but I'll give him one anyway. Noam Chomsky is a linguist, philosopher, social critic, and activist. Noam is considered the father of modern linguistics, and has written more than 100 books. His most recent being Requiem for the American Dream: The 10 Principles of Concentration of Wealth and Power.   Noam and I both signed the infamous Harper's letter many months ago, so we start out by talking about that letter and the fallout that ensued. Next, I asked Noam what has changed most about the culture of the American Left in his lifetime, the strange alliance between multinational corporations and woke anti racism, the role of money in politics, the rising influence of China and much more. #Ad- Today's episode is sponsored by our friends 1440.

David worked for the Obama campaign and was described in New York Magazine as “Obama’s in-house Nate Silver”. You may know David’s name because he was fired in June, over a tweet that was widely viewed as innocent. The tweet cited research showing that riots, unlike non-violent protests, tend to move voters to the right. Although Coleman wanted to talk to David about the circumstances of his firing, due to legal reasons, David can’t talk about it publicly. This episode focuses on the basics of polling and why the polls under predicted Trump’s performance in both 2016 and 2020. Coleman also talked about David’s skepticism of the so-called ‘Shy Trump Voter Effect’, the problem of non-response bias, and what to make of the growing cultural divide between college-educated and non-college-educated voters. Coleman had a very productive disagreement about the so-called racial resentment scales, used as a tool to understand why people voted for Trump and much more.
For exclusive member-only content become a CwC subscriber via https://colemanhughes.org/ Coleman's latest episode features Andrew Sullivan, a British born American writer and blogger. Andrew is a political commentator, a former editor at the New Republic, and the author or editor of six books. He also started a very famous political blog called the Daily Dish in 2000 and eventually moved that blog to Time Magazine, The Atlantic, The Daily Beast, and is now running an independent subscription-based format on Substack. This episode was recorded last Thursday, right after the election, and before it was completely certain that Trump had lost. During this episode, they look at Trump's single-term presidency in retrospect and evaluate which fears about him proved true and which proved false. They talk about the lack of a Biden landslide, and what that means for the long term prospects of Trumpism — even in the absence of Trump himself. They talk about the problem of elite bubbles misunderstanding the rest of the nation, the relationship between Trump and the far left, and much more.

Emmm Arrrrr

listening to Niall Ferguson feels like listening to a Trump apologist. "This isn't the Trump administration's fault, but the fault of the CDC! the public health bureaucracy failed... but look at Obama's failures on H1N1 and the Opoid epidemic."

Secular morality is illogical and continously begs the question. That's why I love the theistic moral argument. And as Coleman demonstrated, there is a cognitive dissonance that exists, yet can't be justified from a naturalistic worldview.
