80) Criminal Justice System

80) Criminal Justice System

2022-05-1001:20:07

It has become beyond apparent that a “tough on crime” approach proves more detrimental than beneficial to society. To further explore this, I am joined by high-profile criminal barrister, Queen's Council, and author of “Justice on Trial”, Chris Daw QC, who offers his thoughts on what measures need to be taken to reform a tragically devolved justice system. Bio: Chris Daw QC was called to the Bar in 1993 and was appointed Queen’s Counsel in 2013. Before taking silk, Chris built his reputation in the  criminal courts, acting in high profile  trials and appeals, from  serious organised crime to commercial fraud. As a QC, whilst maintaining  a substantial criminal and serious fraud practice, Chris acts in a  broader range of matters, including business, regulatory and  professional discipline instructions. Chris Daw QC has a stellar practise spanning the fields of criminal  law, serious fraud, business regulation, and professional discipline.  Ranked as a Leading Silk in The Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners, Chris appears in many high profile cases. He also advises companies and  leading individuals in the worlds of sport, entertainment, and business.  First and foremost, however, he is known for his winning strategies and  exceptional client care, no matter who he represents. Chris Daw QC acts only for private and insured clients, all of whom  receive the time and attention to detail they demand. His client base  consists of private individuals, corporations, regulated professionals,  and senior police officers. Although Chris has acted for international  footballers, world champion boxers, television producers, multi-national  corporations, and Chief Constables, most of his clients are not in the  public eye and have no desire for the limelight. Many of those who  instruct Chris are hard-working people, who find themselves, or a loved  one, accused of a crime, which threatens to ruin their life. They want  to do everything legally possible to protect themselves from  imprisonment, damage to reputation, and financial ruin.

78) Altruism - Psychopathy

78) Altruism - Psychopathy

2022-04-2601:00:20

Why would someone help a crashed car on a highway, and why would someone donate a kidney to a complete stranger‽ Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience, and author of "The Fear Factor: How One Emotion Connects Altruists, Psycopaths, and Everyone In-Between," Dr. Abigail Marsh, joins me today to discuss the spectrum from Altruism to Psychopathy.  Bio: I am a Professor in the Department of Psychology and the Interdisciplinary Neuroscience Program at Georgetown University. I received my PhD in Social Psychology from  Harvard University in 2004 and afterward conducted post-doctoral  research at the National Institute of Mental Health until 2008. I direct the Laboratory on Social & Affective Neuroscience,  research in which is aimed at addressing questions that include: How do  people understand what others think and feel? What drives us to help other people? What prevents us from harming them? We tackle these  questions using multiple approaches that include functional and  structural brain imaging in adolescents and adults from both typical and  special populations, as well as behavioral, cognitive, genetic, and  pharmacological methods. Current research projects include online,  behavioral, and brain imaging investigations of a variety of  populations, including typical adults and children, highly altruistic adults (including those who have donated kidneys to strangers), and  adults and children who have serious conduct problems and psychopathic  traits. Our work has received awards that include the Wyatt Memorial Award for translational  research from the National Institute of Mental Health and the Cozzarelli Prize for scientific excellence and originality from the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. I serve on the advisory boards of the National Kidney Donation  Organization and 1DaySooner and am a co-founder of Psychopathy Is.

Today, I welcome Jessie Bullock, PhD candidate in Government at Harvard University, to introduce the concept of corruption. More specifically, explore the reasons as to why politicians are actively and willingly engaging with criminal organizations in Southern and Central America. Bio: I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Government at Harvard  University, studying Comparative Politics and Political Economy. My  broad research interests include conflict, organized crime, inequality, distributive politics, corruption, and rule of law. My dissertation book project, Machine Gun Politics: Why Politicians Cooperate with Criminal Groups, explains  what politicians can gain from partnering with criminal actors. I  leverage a quasi-experimental study of voting, an original database on  criminal governance, and 18 months of extensive fieldwork in this  mixed-methods study of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. A working paper drawing  from my dissertation, Organized Crime and Voter Mobilization, recently  won the 2020 Best Paper Award from the Subnational Politics and Society  section of the Latin American Studies Association (LASA). My other research focuses on the implications of public security on inequality and violence. My working paper Why Limiting Police Raids Decreased Criminal Violence in Rio de Janeiro was referenced in Brazilian Supreme Court testimony regarding the legality of police raids. I am the recipient of a 2019 Weatherhead Center for International Affairs  Dissertation Writing Fellowship and the 2018 recipient of the Jorge  Paulo Lemann Traveling Fellowship to Brazil. My field work has  generously been supported by the Corporación Andino de Fomiento (CAF),  David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies (DRCLAS), the  Harvard Brazil Cities Initiative, and the Foundations of Human Behavior  Initiative (FHB). I am a current graduate student affiliate of the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs and the Institute for Quantitative Social Sciences.

Spotify has been put into the media thanks to Joe Rogan and Neil Young. However, Spotify has actually been a debated topic for some time now. Journalist, Mark Dent, shares his investigative findings on how the billion dollar streaming service, is failing all of its artists. Bio: I'm  a journalist based in Dallas and sometimes in the Kansas City area,  where I'm from. I write about business, tech, urbanism, sports,  religion, changing cities and ephemera from the 90s. I'm  currently working on a book about Kansas City and Patrick Mahomes that  is slated to be published in 2023 by Dutton.

In this episode we'll be discussing the Third Front, a covert industrialization campaign that took place between 1964 and 1972 in  China's remote, mountainous interior. This little-discussed campaign  actually formed a crucial part of China's Cold War policy strategy, and  despite its clandestine nature cost billions of yuan in resource and  personnel allocation, as well as for construction and transportation.  The Third Front was part of China's preparations for war with either the  US, the Soviet Union, or their allies in the region, especially after  the US joined the Vietnam War in mid-1964. Major industrial and military  complexes were built in southwest, central-west, and northwestern  provinces, which were also interconnected by new railway lines and  powered by grand hydro-electric dams. In the end, the Third Front  fizzled out, especially after the relationship between China and the US  improved, Minister of Defence Lin Biao passed away, and particularly  after the death of Mao Zedong. Many of the projects remained  uncompleted, with others suffering from the pains of rushed  construction, rendering them useless in the long-run. Despite its short  run however, the Third Front did have have a major impact on China's  economics and politics during the 60s and 70s, and deserves our  attention as an important factor in China's Cold War policy formation.  It also gives us another lens through which to view Chinese history, one  which relies less on social history and a Maoist lens, and takes into  consideration external factors that caused major shifts in the  sentiments of the CCP leadership even during major domestic events such  as the Cultural Revolution.

73) Rhetoric

73) Rhetoric

2022-03-0159:49

Today, Dr. Rob Goodman, author of  Words on Fire: Eloquence and Its Conditions, drops in to discuss rhetoric. From Cicero to Facebook, we delve into the evolution of this integral speaking and writing tool, as well as explore the extreme rhetoric entrenched in modern politics and how this art of persuasion aids the news in problematic ways. Shortened Bio: Rob Goodman is Assistant Professor of Politics and Public Administration at Ryerson University. He received his Ph.D. with distinction from Columbia University in 2018 and was previously a postdoctoral researcher at McGill University. His most recent book, Words on Fire: Eloquence and Its Conditions (Cambridge University Press, 2022), investigates the development of models of skilled speech in classical antiquity, as well as their translation into modern institutional settings. It proposes that these models remain a valuable resource for critiquing the current state of political speech. Rob is also the co-editor of Populism, Demagoguery, and Rhetoric in Historical Perspective (Oxford University Press, under contract). His current research project, Black Cicero: Race and American Oratory, is funded by a SSHRC Insight Development Grant. Before beginning his doctoral studies, Rob worked as speechwriter for U.S. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer and Senator Chris Dodd. At Columbia, Rob worked as a Core Curriculum instructor and was a Heyman Center for the Humanities Fellow. His paper "Edmund Burke and the Deliberative Sublime" was the co-winner of the Review of Politics Award for best paper in normative political theory at the 2016 Midwest Political Science Association Conference.

72) Grabby Aliens

72) Grabby Aliens

2022-02-2256:25

Our continually expanding, 14 billion-year-old universe is riddled with planets that could potentially sustain life; so, where is it? Economist, prolific author, and founder of "The Great Filter," Professor Robin Hanson, offers a possible explanation. In today's episode, we take a deep dive into understand “Grabby Aliens,” and the future of humanity. There are two kinds of alien civilizations. “Quiet” aliens don’t expand or change much, and then they die. We have little data on them, and so must mostly speculate, via methods like the Drake equation. “Loud” aliens, in contrast, visibly change the volumes they control, and just keep expanding fast until they meet each other. As they should be easy to see, we can fit theories about loud aliens to our data, and say much about them. Using these parameter estimates, we can estimate distributions over their origin times, distances, and when we will meet or see them. While we don’t know the ratio of quiet to loud alien civilizations out there, we need this to be ten thousand to expect even one alien civilization ever in our galaxy. Alas as we are now quiet, our chance to become grabby goes as the inverse of this ratio. *Warning: Slight audio quality decrease early on Shortened Bio: Robin Hanson is an associate professor of economics at George Mason University, and research associate at the Future of Humanity Institute of Oxford University. He has a doctorate in social science from California Institute of Technology, master's degrees in physics and philosophy from the University of Chicago, and nine years experience as a research programmer, at Lockheed and NASA. Professor Hanson has 5173 citations, a citation h-index of 35, and over ninety academic publications.  Professor Hanson has 1100 media mentions, given 400 invited talks, and his blog OvercomingBias.com has had eight million visits. He coined the phrase "The Great Filter", and has recently numerically estimated it via a model of "Grabby Aliens".
