Looking at Heather Heying and Bret Weinstein’s Book (2020) “A Hunter Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century” (Part 8 of 16)

0044 Where did I leave off?

After 2017, Heather Heying and Bret Weinstein find that they no longer have jobs.  But, surely, they remain professors.

0045 So what happens next?

The culture of podcasting on the internet3H values (selects for) people2H with disciplinary expertise1H.

Yes, the podcasting “culture” is looking for pre-2017 types of professors2H.

0046 Bret Weinstein launches the Darkhorse podcast, a very attractive production in the internet arena.  He remains a professor.  Now, he also professes more than biology.

And, that brings me to the book, which applies lessons from evolutionary theory to life in the 21st century.

Podcasting and book-writing are very similar to higher ed.  Each podcast has its own mission statement.  Each podcast format displays a certain expertise.  Advertisers support well-subscribed podcasts.  Patrons support the podcast directly.

0047 Here is a picture of what (I suppose) podcasting looks like, in terms of an intersection that appropriates the relationality of biological evolution for cultural evolution.

0048 What label applies to the single actuality that is the union of professor2H and podcaster2V?

How about the term, “guidance”?

One watches podcasts for guidance.

0049 On that note, allow me to recall the full title of Heather Heying and Bret Weinstein’s book, A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century: Evolution and The Challenges of Modern Life.

If the single actuality is “guidance”, then I ask the reader how phrases in the title associate to elements in the above intersection.
