I browsed a couple more episodes of that podcast. The conversation with Charles Murray was fantastic. But the most recent episode "Is Life Really Worth Living" serves only to prove that the first conversation with Jordan Peterson is far from the dumbest episode of that podcast.
As a good person, I implore you to do as I, a good person, do. Be good. Do NOT be bad. If you see bad, end bad. End it in yourself, and end it in others. By any means necessary, the good must conquer the bad. Good people know this. Do you know this? Are you good?

If you want to hear a great discussion about the moral and political dead end of identity politics, listen to the discussion with Mark Lila about his book ‘the once and future liberal’.

Another excellent one is the discussion with Nikolas Christokas, the prof who was hounded by the mob at Yale in one of the earlier incidents in this era of campus Opera Buffa.

I liked when Charles Murray said that Hillary's "deplorables" comment may have been a political blunder that changed the course of world history. I've toyed with that thought myself. What an ignoramus thing to have been scripted to say.

But I'm glad she and her followers got the sweet catharsis of saying and hearing it.

I also liked how Murray characterized Trump as the right's "murder weapon".
