#1155 – Henry Rollins – The Joe Rogan Experience

I think Henry Rollins is crazy and gets stuff wrong but he has a laser focus and tolerates zero excuses. His conversations with Joe are always interesting.

The Joe Rogan Experience

Henry Rollins is a musician, actor, writer, television and radio host. He has a special debuting on Showtime called “Keep Talking, Pal” on August 10.

Daniel Dennett vs Keith Ward: Are we more than matter? Mind, consciousness and free will – Unbelievable?

I was a little disappointed in this podcast. I did appreciate the respect between the two participants but I did not feel like either one did a particularly good job of engaging the other person’s ideas. However you do get to see the ideas that each person is putting forward and so I do think it is still worth a listen.


In the 5th episode of The Big Conversation, Justin is joined by atheist guest Daniel Dennett and Christian guest Keith Ward. Daniel C Dennett is Professor of Philosophy at Tufts University, USA and a leading naturalist voice in the philosophy of mind. Keith Ward is a British philosopher and former Regius Professor of Divinity at Oxford University as well as being an ordained priest in the Church of England..

They debate physicalism, idealism, the ‘hard problem’ of consciousness, whether an objective moral realm exists, freewill vs determinism and whether robots could have an immortal soul  Watch the video debate and subscribe to the newsletter at https://www.thebigconversation.show/daniel-dennett-and-keith-ward

Sunday Special Ep 22: Jonathan Haidt – The Ben Shapiro Show

A decidedly educational discussion about people’s politics and their perspectives. Jonathan Haidt is a non-conservative making good points about the sources of our division and challenges we’ll likely face in the future.

The Ben Shapiro Show

Join Ben Shapiro as he sits down with author of “The Righteous Mind,” Jonathan Haidt, as they discuss whether the right and left can ever reconcile, the problem with feelings, why identity politics is so, so dangerous, and much more. Date: 10-07-2018

Hitchens vs Hitchens debate on War and God – podcast special Unbelievable?

An interesting debate between Christopher Hitchens and his brother Paul. Paul does a medium job. Hitch is a powerful orator but, with respect to God in particular, he rarely says something. Hitch blithely dances atop his unexamined presuppositions.

It is interesting to hear their different perspectives on the Iraq war.


In this podcast special edition of the show Justin broadcasts the 2008 public debate between Christopher Hitchens and his brother Peter Hitchens. Christopher Hitchens (1949-2011) was one of the four so-called ‘horsemen of the new atheism’, well known for his colourful anti-theistic polemical writing and speaking. In contrast his journalist brother Peter Hitchens is a Christian who converted from atheism in his adult years. In this classic public debate from 2008, hosted by the Hauenstein Center for Presidential Studies at Grand Valley State University, both men debate the Iraq war, the case for God and respond to questions from the 1,400 strong audience.

“Check Out The Big ‘Strain’ On Brett”: GOP Commences Final Push for Brett Kavanaugh’s Confirmation Vote as FBI InvestigationConcludes Morning Joe

Another current affairs program. They used to be a staple of my podcast listening but Joe and Mika fell victim to such a bad case of Trump derangement syndrome that it ceased being worth listening to. This is the first episode I’ve listened to (almost) in full in well over a year. They seem to be mostly back in their right minds.

Morning Joe

Last night, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) took to the floor of the Senate to announce that the FBI investigation involving the allegations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh had been completed, and the findings will be shared with the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday morning.

According to sources familiar with this morning’s schedule, Committee Chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) was the first to receive the FBI’s report, at 8 a.m. EST, for analysis. At 9 a.m., Ranking Member Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) will then be allowed to view the findings.

The staggered release of the report will continue with GOP members of the Senate Judiciary Committee at 10 a.m., Democratic members at 11 a.m., and remaining members of the Senate, afterward.

Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell has already set a vote for the continuation of Kavanaugh’s confirmation for Friday. If Kavanaugh’s confirmation effort survives this next round of voting, the Senate can then debate for up to 30 hours, placing the first opportunity for a penultimate confirmation vote on Saturday morning.

That being said, a handful of Senators, on both sides of the aisle, still remain undecided on the Kavanaugh vote — most notably, Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK). Both of whom have been targets of vigorous protests in the halls of the Capitol Building, leading Capitol Police to block some areas of the building off from media and civilians.

President Donald Trump, meanwhile, has been doubling down on his and his base’s support of Judge Kavanaugh, attempting to “fire up” his loyal supporters by feeding off of and exploiting their distaste and distrust of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.

Joining us with her new reporting, out today, is White House Correspondent for Bloomberg News Shannon Pettypiece. 

She’ll explain how Trump is “tapping in” to core conservative values by drumming up unyielding and intense support of Judge Kavanaugh and, in turn, drumming up GOP-voter enthusiasm a little more than a month before the midterm elections.

What’s more, new polling out from Fox News, this morning, is showing that support for multiple GOP senate candidates across the country is up, amidst the confirmation fight of Brett Kavanaugh, indicating that President Trump’s push has some political merit.

It’s Thursday, October 4, 2018. Welcome to Morning Joe.

Sunday Special Ep 9: Sam Harris – The Ben Shapiro Show

Two intellectually honest people of diverging views. Sam reveals his “objective” basis for morality in a materialistic universe. It doesn’t pan out but is definitely worth listening to.

The Ben Shapiro Show

Sam Harris joins Ben for a wide-ranging discussion on identity politics, the existence of God, and the Bible’s view of slavery. Date: 07-06-2018

Ep. 630 – Did The Kavanaugh Allegations Just Implode? The Ben Shapiro Show

From a decidedly conservative perspective, a reasonably evenhanded assessment of the current state of affairs.
I wouldn’t normally post a podcast about news but thought this was worth it.

The Ben Shapiro Show

We take a look at all the breaking news on the Kavanaugh allegations, the media humiliate themselves, and we take a look at the funniest story of the year! Date: 10-03-2018
