Within Reason

Episode 105 - Matt Barbacki and the Methods of Rationality

March 17, 2014

An engineer drops by the podcast to tell Jonathan how to be less wrong. It involves tomato timers, effective altruism, and the historicity of your beliefs. Can a Less Wrong rationalist and a skeptical rationalist get along? Back in the studio, Andrew, our resident hockey Satanist, talks about quitting smoking and why the Boston Bruins rock. And two special guest stars help Jonathan and Andrew stage a live radio play of Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality. It quickly devolves into anarchy as Sesame Street's Count shows up (for no reason), accompanied by a plague of flaming zebras. Check out Moutons No More on Facebook!
