The Big Kerfuffle (Free Speech Vs Hate Speech)

Does everyone have a right to speak and express their views? When does free speech become hate speech? Who gets to be the "Thought Police" and decide what is, and isn't, allowed to be said? The free speech vs hate speech debate has ramped up over the past few years, so we head into the fray and serve up our own thoughts on the controversy. We also learn a little about John Harvey Kellogg and the sinister past lurking in your morning bowl of cereal.


Your Lazy Brain

Like it or not we are thinking, conscious, beings and that means we have responsibilities! One of those responsibilities is to engage our brain because if left alone it's more than happy to take the lazy route, on the highway of life, and coast on autopilot. So in today's episode we talk about the broken school system, why learning is a life long endeavor, and discuss some techniques to turn anybody into a learning monster! Although Matt does begin the conversation ranting about the...


God is in the Algorithm

A new religion may be emerging that comes with a code of conduct but does away with the traditional notion of God, replacing him instead with an algorithm.

The Spread of Misinformation

We have the worlds knowledge and ideas at our finger tips yet so often misinformation reigns supreme. Are we being manipulated by group ideologies? Or do we just live in a culture addicted to drama and scandal? Are we now so bad at having proper discussions that we don't even hear what's being said? Or ultimately does it just come down to pure laziness!? Let's go deeper in this award winning episode of the Uncle2Beers podcast. FUN FACT - Speaking of misinformation, did you know that bananas...


The Prefrontal Cortex

Let's drill into those heads (metaphorically speaking) and get all up in the part of the brain that doesn't fully develop until our mid 20's; the mysterious prefrontal cortex! We also hit round 2 of Theseus' Ship (or boat depending on your preference) by re-imagining this classic thought experiment from episode 15.


(Part 2) Morty's Mind Blowers!

Morty's Mind Blowers! (Part 1)

Are you ready to have your mind blown? Because it's time to shake up those brains (metaphorically speaking, nobody wants a concussion) and question the very fabric of reality! So settle in and listen along to our two part, very special, birthday MEGA-EPISODE, all about thought experiments.


Merging With Machines

Over the last few decades humans have begun to merge with technology. But what does the future hold? How far will we go? What are the ethical issues involved? And why is Matt seemingly obsessed with the future of robotic genitalia!? All this and more in a surprisingly wide ranging conversation.


Social Media + Discussion = Myth?

Our beloved internet has created a sea of filter bubbles that we're all drowning in! Can we pop these bringers of misinformation and have proper adult conversations online? Or are we doomed to an eternal cycle of drama and argument? At least Matt's disheartening encounter on Twitter had one positive; an entire podcast episode for you fine folks!


Can Science Determine What's Right And Wrong?

What is right and what is wrong? Can science ever give us a moral code to follow? And what about free will? A conversation triggered by Sam Harris and his book The Moral Landscape.

Love Thy Self!

On today's episode we discuss that crazy little thing called love and how to heal from a broken heart (hint: it's not diving head first into another relationship!) We also argue over what defines a memory, and Sam teaches us all about a form of swarm intelligence known as stigmergy!


Travel Jealousy And The "Perfect Life" Image

Secretly jealous and annoyed with your friends and family for traveling while you aren't? Let's do what most people don't and confront this strange beast together!
