Not much Turchin in the Turchin episode
Disappointing. It was pretty much two guys bloviating sophomorically. Funny thing is, I actually agree with a lot of the sentiments they expressed (about America needing to grow up and accept that it is no longer going to be the dominant world power), but the factual inaccuracies and gross mischaracterization of certain eras were distracting, and the rambling conversation was frustrating—I know they mentioned Turchin’s name once or twice, but did they ever talk about his ideas? Anyway, if someone wants a good discussion of Turchin, try the episode from The Nietzsche Podcast that’s devoted to him—way better.

Great podcast. Convergence of a lot of cool topics.

Both the hosts are well-informed and know what they are talking about. A very good (and much-needed) podcast on human genetics, covering topics as diverse as anthropology, archaeology, genetics, and evolutionary biology.

My wife and I enjoy listening to these podcasts. We're able to sit down and learn a little of history, archaeology, anthropology and genetics. This information provides us with perspective, insight and even some wisdom.
