Om Podcasten

Watch unedited interviews with intellectuals on the topics of delineating extremism on the left, Theories of Everything (physics), free will, and consciousness. I don't oversimplify concepts to a lay audience and expect those listening to either read up on the technical terms they're unfamiliar with, or choose another episode. A fully articulated approach, where each interlocutor says what they think to be the case as precisely as possible without concern for high-level non-detail oriented conversations, is what I believe is both what people are most interested and what can move us away from dogmatic / unruly extremism.
