In this episode of the Portal, Eric checks in with his friend Andrew Yang to discuss the meteoric rise of his candidacy; one that represents an insurgency against a complacent political process that the media establishment doggedly tries to maintain. Andrew updates Eric on the state of his campaign and the status of the ideas the two had discussed as its foundation when it began. Eric presents Andrew with his new economic paradigm; moving from an 'is a [worker]' economy to a 'has a [worker]' economy. The two also discuss neurodiverse families as a neglected voting block, the still-strong but squelched-by-the-scientific-establishment STEM community in the US, and the need to talk fearlessly - and as a xenophile - about immigration as a wealth transfer gimmick. Sponsors:Reverse-Sponsor: https://www.drbronner.com/Skillshare: Skillshare.com/PORTAL for 2 months of Skillshare freeBoll and Branch: BollandBranch.com $50 off with promo code: PORTAL No risk, 30 day trial period with free shipping
Eric sits down with Bret Easton Ellis; the two Gen X’ers graduated from rival high schools in a disaffected 1982 Los Angeles that inspired Ellis’ first novel “Less Than Zero”. In this conversation, they reflect on LA, Generation X, and the different notions of childhood held by Gen x and Millennials. Sponsors:Phlur: phlur.com/portal for 20% offBoll and Branch: BollandBranch.com $50 off with promo code: PORTAL No risk, 30 day trial period with free shippingFour Sigmatic: FourSigmatic.com/PORTAL and use discount code PORTAL to get a 15% discount on all ordersSkillshare: Skillshare.com/PORTAL for 2 months of Skillshare free
Jocko Willink is a man who radiates decency. He is also part of a community of warriors drawn to test themselves in the crucible of deadly combat against an evil and implacable foe. Eric sits down with Jocko Willink to learn how this cerebral Navy SEAL and hero of the battle of Ramadi against ISIS managed to bring military discipline home to the fight for personal freedom in peacetime writing kids books that teach ‘extreme ownership’ and radical accountability to children. Give warriors a chance, and then subscribe to The Portal to be sure to catch our next and future episodes when they drop.Sponsor:Netsuite: netsuite.com/portal
Beyond New Atheism: is a constructive adult relationship possible between atheism and religion?On this episode of the portal, Eric hosts leading conservative rabbi David Wolpe and explores the possibilities for, and problems with, a new synthesis of atheism and religion in our modern era that avoids special pleading.Sponsors of this episode of The Portal:Skillshare: https://www.skillshare.com/portalExpressVPN: https://www.expressvpn.com/portalNetsuite: https://www.netsuite.com/portal
What if everything we are taught in economics 101 is not only wrong, but may even be setting us up for populism, dictatorship or revolution? On this episode of the Portal, Eric is joined by renegade Economist Professor Timur Kuran whose theory of Preference Falsification appears to explain the world wide surge towards populism, and is now threatening to rewrite the core tenets of modern economics. This could well be the most important economist you’ve never heard of.

I had hoped this podcast would have focused more on the various theories of our universe and their implications. I don't have a problem listening to historical and contemporary social commentary, but was hoping to get conversations involving experts who could expand upon physics and mathematics for the non mathematician which I think eric is very good at doing sometimes.

Fantastic interview from Eric Weinstein. Yang is clearly the top of the candidates

I’m a Yang fan so I’m biased. Regardless, EW asks some of the most thought through questions I’ve heard in a long time. Love this podcast and have been listening to this more than Sam Harris’s Making Sense. Which is also a quality podcast btw. Thanks Eric!

Ok, I'm out. I know he likes feedback so I'll comment. I thought The Portal was about delving into the mysteries of the world we live in and get an escape from the world. But this isn't doing it for me. It's fine, maybe I was just wrong about where he wanted this podcast to go. It kind of feels like he is doing it to expand his social network.

There are two kinds of millennials, the silent and the loud. The loud millennials are attached to new, hollow ideologies that are ignorantly based on old, decaying ideologies and are trying desperately to fight off the encroaching nihilism and socioeconomic fatalism of modernity by insulating themselves from discomfort and reassuring themselves of their ethical superiority, simultaneously reveling in shame and destroying what it means to feel shame. The silent millennials are gamers, cannabis addicts, and shitposters who are numbing themselves to how hollow our social structures have become and just trying to find some brief pleasure in a cyberpunk reality, enjoying the decline.

How can I take anyone seriously who believes Trump called all immigrants rapists?

As Peter was talking about new, innovative business models, here is a first iteration of a possible model: https://medium.com/@athulmul/the-amsterdam-business-model-4b6445ea8977 This is essentially a draft model, please feel free to contribute :)

jeez...I really like Herzog but he's a difficult character to deal with. Almost everything Eric added to the conversation needed to be corrected by Werner immediately🙄
