Show Notes & Recap: TMBS - Ep. 10 - Robert Wright & Trevor Beaulieu
 

Show Recap

Opening Commentary

Michael took on the mainstream media’s complicity in raising the profile of the Alt-Right and dismantled the polite bigotry of the Alt-Lite.

Guests

Michael talked with Robert Wright (@RobertWrighter) about his new book, 'Why Buddhism is True: The Science and Philosophy of Meditation and Enlightenment.' The conversation ranged from neuroscience to mindful resistance in the Time of Trump.

Trevor Beaulieu (@RickyRawls) of the Champagne Sharks Podcast was in studio for his first public appearance on the heels of his great piece in the Intercept. Michael and Trevor talked discussed selling socialism to the normies, the mainstreaming of Kaepernick’s #TakeAKnee and why he decided to take his advocacy public.

Pyramid

Michael threw Ben Shapiro in the Pyramid for his faux intellectual racism and abhorrent Columbus Day video. 

Special thanks to the team at the Institute for Progressive Memetics (@ipm_tweets) for creating the awesome pyramid video each week!
