I could've sworn I heard Lex say a month or two ago that he had another interview with Elon coming up, but then never heard a word about it again.

I gotta go through his back catalog, he's had so many good guests I've missed.
that would be good, i hope sooner than later

lex is crushing it, i would've broken my own bones to have access to this information when i was in high school

I like him, I listened to maybe 4 or 5 of his podcasts... if there's one thing about him that makes it hard for me to really think he's sort of, a mouthpiece for my own worldview... he just seems to talk about a lot of alternate-lifestyle stuff that feels kinda tacky to me... Like, uh, the extremely careful way he constructs his morning ritual to take advantage of some 'peak performance' that we're supposed to enjoy just when we wake up... Ah who am I kidding, I guess I just wish I was that disciplined :messenger_tears_of_joy:

He talked about having John Carmack on.
Joe rogan couldn't follow him at all, can't wait for Lex to ask him challenging questions..

The Michael Malice episodes are hilarious. Those two are polar opposites with Malice being a mischievious troll and Lex being so serious.

The Eric Weinstein episodes were pretty interesting. Eric treats Lex like he's his son or protege: "I see you had Michael Malice on recently. I don't like his gimmick. I don't appreciate trolling"

Big fan of Tim Dillon. In the span of one month he was hanging out with Alex Jones, Kyle Kulinski, Andrew Schulz, and Candace Owens. Although people on the left call him right leaning Diet Alex Jones he seems more like a centrist or even a classic liberal.

Lex is so adorable with his accent and attempts at humor and his suit. And how he always believes love will win out.

The Dan Carlin episode was great.

Tim Dillon cracks me up. I don't know if he was joking about the Illuminati and Knights Templar conspiracy theory tying back to David Spade, but I laughed for like 5 straight minutes when he said that.

I just picture the scene from the movie in JFK with Donald Sutherland on the park bench and him going "Want to get to the bottom of the Illuminati? Start with David Spade..."
 
I really liked the Tim episode, anyone else get the feeling Lex is either gunning to take the Rogan audience or is somehow being pushed that way? Not that i mind, i have found in the recent episodes his way of talking has smoothed out without so many long pauses which is what first put me off him

episode with keller insofar as describing the state of graphics and intelligence processing is quite good, technical and shrewd

eric said he'll post his geometric unity papers at or around april 1st, he further explains gauge theory and the necessity to understand math and physics honestly from first principles not fractious analogy far and away from the ideas themselves (as they are not ought to be)

Brother in law*

I just read Wikipedia entry on Jordan medical issues, scary , scary stuff.


I really like Eric Weinstein out of frame thinking in a lot of issues, keep me on my toes all the time, it's wonderful.
Wait, I'm confused. Are we talking about Jim Keller, here?

The Eric Weinstein episode was great. Lex is too adorable. At the end when he asks Eric if he loves Zev it was just the most innocent question ever, almost something a wide eyed kid would ask. So Lex Fridman.

This episode was very good. I can’t believe the shit this girl had to go through.

There was so many good quotes in that one, it really changed my point of view on a couple of things.

when they say you cannot talk, what they say is that you cannot think
"If you know what it means to be oppressed, you're not really oppressed."

All that suffering only to get lectured by Academia about oppression...

Her perspective on love broke me. Like to know nothing but love for the great leader is insane. It’s a concept that my brain can’t really comprehend.
