In this 201st 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 discuss New York’s emergency rule 2.13, which has now been reinstated after being overturned, and which paves the way for quarantine camps in order to “control the spread of a highly contagious communicable disease.” We also discuss penguins, their ability to tell each other apart based on the dots on their chests, and why that’s important.
