Description

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.

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.

the mutual backslapping in this episode is quite intolerable
