From the YouTube summary:
In this 79th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens. In this episode, we again discuss the research showing that SARS-CoV2’s spike protein is sufficient on its own to cause disease. The authors believe that this is good news with regard to the vaccines currently in circulation; they may be right. We discuss the paper, the authors’ clarification. Then: lab leak hypothesis continues to gain ground. And: Portland erupts in more violence. The Evergreen State College cannot manage to hire a new president—what are they doing wrong, and what does it suggest about the future of higher ed? Finally, robins and crows face-off.
