Prime example of why lefty comedy sucks.
Some of these options are very difficult for larger bodied people. Inclusiveness needs to a part of this discussion.
Exactly! This absurd racism in the USA is crazy. The so called "real Americans" should be designated as Euro-Americans. 😁 Great work Adam!
While I agree that we need to holistically change the systems we have in place in order to address the issues that are plaguing animals, we still ultimately need large numbers of people to change their individual behavior in order to make such systematic changes. This is why I still advocate for people to make concrete changes in their lives because if no one changes anything, nothing will happen. And one of the go-to changes I advocate for is to adopt a vegan lifestyle. Sure, it definitely doesn't address all of the issues mentioned in this episode, but it's one of the biggest single impacts that individuals can have in terms of changing these systems. If enough people were to refuse to buy products from any of the industries that directly use animals for food, clothing, entertainment, etc., those industries would no longer be able to stay afloat and they would have to either fundamentally change their products or go bankrupt. Not only would that greatly reduce suffering, but removing our reliance on using animals would make the conversation about animal rights much easier to have. Currently, asking governments, corporations, and individuals to give animals more rights is incredibly difficult because their income and lifestyles greatly depend on animals not having said rights. We need to address these issues in carefully coordinated phases, or else we will just sit here spinning our wheels. And the first phase is to remove our reliance on animal use.
my MIL was scammed $75,000 so far from a romance scam that uses a fake crypto site. she thinks she's investing and making hundreds of thousands and that this guy is going to marry her. 🤦🏻♀️
It's a scam. that's all there is to it.
The guest shouldn't speak on what was and wasn't effective with regards to the civil rights movement, especially considering at every policy point of that movement things are worse.
I used to watch his tv show & thought he was looking through an objective lens...but I'm done. His anecdotal, unqualified OPINIONS are biased & subjective. NOT FACTS! Try looking up the "scientific studies" he lists on his TV show & these worthless podcasts; Most are not double-blind or peer reviewed! It's not difficult to pick & choose "research studies" to suit any particular objective. This episode is further proof of his agenda & his butt-hurt self whining about how he couldn't handle smoking & drinking in his 20's. Yeah, blame the Adderall for all your problems. How about you're just a douche??
Good episode! 😊
A wonderful discussion that dispels the very simplistic narrative Americans have been fed for generations. cuba has a fascinating and nuanced history. Very interesting.
Hinshaw does a great job of explaining how stimulants affect dopamine levels(S"D"RI), how marketing manipulates us -including doctors- into buying into this, why there is a perceived epidemic, how our current society sets us up to have difficulties when the same "symptoms" 200 years ago may not have been a problem. cool interview.
Of course it fucking is what kind of question is what Adam?

Adam I love you work this one is bull. I see some one hanging around my house with my three ring cameras. It's not because of his color of his skin it's because he has no response to be around my house. This lady is way over PC and needs to get a grip on our reality. Cameras make our community safer.

Your guest stated that the cops are afraid for their lives when dealing with people of color even when they aren't in possession of a weapon. I'm just curious, why aren't they afraid for their lives when they encounter a white person THAT IS IN POSSESSION OF A WEAPON and that weapon is trained and drawn on the police and they still don't use deadly force???? There have been videos showing a white person wrestling with a policeman and the cop is running from that individual! That person eventually takes the policeman's weapon and the car and the policeman does nothing! No deadly force no backups called.... Nothing!
I'm kinda disappointed. This would be a great discussion, but I felt a lot of important things fell through the cracks (what happens when the majority consensus IS what's suspect for people like conspiracy theorists who use that popularity to validate themselves?). Guest was really interesting but had trouble communicating clearly.
ah man, this is really interesting to listen to almost a year later and how it all played out. record numbers of voters, mail ins, economic disaster, crazy conduct....
One comment regarding the “cracked rib” story: the US is so litigious, NOT getting a chest XR puts you at risk for a lawsuit. I agree, the patient is likely fine so why put them through additional testing, and we (as physicians) should be allowed to make that clinical judgement. On the 1-2% chance his presentation was more insidious and led to more serious events, we’d get sued to next Sunday. There’s a push to reduce spending in healthcare, though that responsibility is usually placed upon the physician (not the system, administration, insurance companies, or pharmaceutical) without any additional protection. (Maybe this is touched on later in the episode, but I haven’t finished yet)
