01) MAPs irl Episode 5


“Things get technical when guest David and the hosts discuss science, scientists, and the MAP community. What place does science have in the community and what role does it play in conversations with non-MAPs? How can we as a community improve relations with scientists and how they represent us to the outside world? And do facts really not care about your feelings?

01) Making Sense with Sam Harris #160 – The Revenge of History (with Michael Weiss and Yascha Mounk)


“In this episode of the podcast, Sam Harris speaks with Michael Weiss and Yascha Mounk about the state of global politics. They discuss the rise of right-wing populism in Europe, the prospect that democracy could fail in the US, Trump’s political instincts, the political liability of “wokeness,” the Left’s failure to re-think its support of Chavez, the dangers of political polarization, the attractions of extreme partisanship, cancel culture, and other topics.

Michael Weiss is an internationally respected investigative journalist who has covered the wars in Syria and Ukraine and published widely on Russian espionage and disinformation. His first book, ISIS: Inside the Army of Terror (co-written with Hassan Hassan), was a New York Times bestseller and named one of the Top Ten Books on Terrorism by the Wall Street Journal as well as one of the Best Books of 2015 by The Times of London. Weiss is a regular guest on CNN, MSNBC, the BBC and Real Time with Bill Maher. He writes a column for The Daily Beast.

Yascha Mounk is a writer, academic, and public speaker known for his work on the rise of populism and the crisis of liberal democracy. He is an Associate Professor at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, a senior fellow at the German Marshall Fund, and a senior advisor at Protect Democracy. A frequent contributor to The Atlantic, the New York Times, and Die Zeit, Mounk is the host of Slate’s The Good Fight Podcast. He has written three books: Stranger in My Own Country, The Age of Responsibility, and The People versus Democracy, which explains the causes of the populist rise and investigates how to renew liberal democracy.”

Bleach Cult Performing Unsanctioned Human Experiments on Uganda Villages…

01) Bleach Cult Performing Unsanctioned Human Experiments on Uganda Villages


“At the beginning of April, I started to receive messages on Facebook from a man claiming to have proof that the industrial bleach and water purifier, chlorine dioxide (Miracle Mineral Solution – MMS), can not only cure malaria, but can do so in as little as two hours. The messages, which included a link to a now-deleted YouTube video, were sent by 25-year-old former clairvoyant, Sam Little, who ended by stating, “The truth will always win in the end!”. The video Sam sent me a link to was titled, ‘Malaria cured in 2 hours with MMS Miracle mineral solution’, and was identical to the Red Cross “study” 7 years prior. Horrified that history was repeating itself, I asked him how he came to find this obscure video on YouTube, only to discover that he actually starred in it. Sam was the one who was front and centre, conning Ugandan villagers to feed this industrial bleach to their children, and no, I am not being overly dramatic, as the video predominantly shows children rather than adults drinking this toxic fluid. Over the following 6 weeks, I, and several others, probed Sam for information regarding this new “clinical trial” and, to our horror, discovered that he was only a cog in a much larger machine. This is the story of how, with Sam’s help, we stumbled upon a network of bleach-pushers that had conned up to 50,000 Ugandans to consume MMS by convincing them it was a gift from God.”
