I am humbled by the work of conflict journalists, they are the unsung heroes of telling the stories of those who cannot. Thank you!

So here's the thing; too often do I cringe when a guest is speaking, thinking "Oh c'mon Neil, just let him speak his mind".. Neil indifferently and disrespectfully interrupts those around him and I find that quite rude and also arrogant, I'm under impression that his asserting his intellect over others in a slight superior way. I might be wrong, sure, but it is an impression I got throughout many episodes in this podcast or other interviews I've listened to.

To me any system with enough interconnected complexity can generate consciousness. Now I say that there was a spectrum of different types of possible consciousnesses. I believe the entire universe is conscious but it's not analogous to the same type of consciousness that humans experience. Case and poiny; an ant colony or fungal colony is able to survive and communicate as a single organism in order to ensure its survival and that organism is conscious Granted, this definition may be too broad but it's is just my subjective interpretation of the word.

Are there any episodes without Lisa? She has the most annoying voice I've ever heard and her comments manage to be both unfunny and cringe-worthy.

I think people would take this issue more seriously if you would let people know where all the C02 is coming from. 2 countries Asia, and India are the greatest contributing factors. even if the U.S. had zero emissions it would make zero change. It's fun to beat around the Bush and make money off of your books on the issue but we need REAL accountability and less talk

Just because you are smart Neil, the vast majority of people that watch Star Wars would have no idea why it made a different sound in the atmosphere and get mad at the movie because it sounds different. So I think that they make it the same to keep the audience happy.

the water that the planet that crashed into the Earth to make the moon plus the water the Earth all ready had plus the asteroids and comets could have been where the Earth got its water. just my hypothesis.
