We're not to blame for climate change. It's a part of the natural cycle. The earth is flat. The round Earth conspiracy is orchestrated by NASA and other government agencies. No one should get the coronavirus vaccine. Bill Gates wants to use it to implant microchips in people. This is, of course, all bunk. But how can we change the minds of people who believe it to be true? Lee McIntyre offered thoughts and suggestions to try and reach, communicate, and change the minds of science deniers in How to Talk to a Science Denier. And, he warned, it's best not to just dismiss them and ignore them. Why? Science denial can kill. From attending a flat earth conference to chats with anti-vaxxers, McIntire presented the five factors involved in science denial: cherry-picking evidence, belief in conspiracy theories, reliance on fake experts, logical errors, and setting impossible expectations on what science can achieve. Can we achieve understanding with the irrational? Not through belittling them or through anger, McIntyre said, but through calm, respectful rationality. Lee McIntyre is a Research Fellow at the Center for Philosophy and History of Science at Boston University. He is the author of Dark Ages: The Case for a Science of Human Behavior, Post-Truth, and The Scientific Attitude: Defending Science from Denial, Fraud, and Pseudoscience.

If you're confused about China's stance on the use of coal, well, you're definitely not alone. This week, China went on a global coal buying binge in a frantic effort to put a stop to rolling blackouts that have afflicted millions of residents, factories, and businesses in at least nine provinces over the past several weeks.But just two weeks earlier, President Xi Jinping told everyone at the United Nations General Assembly that Beijing planned to phase out the use of dirty fuels as part of an ambitious effort to reach peak carbon dioxide emissions before 2030. And the President also said his government would halt the building of new coal-fired power plants abroad.So, China is doubling down on coal at home while abandoning the dirty fuel abroad?Rishikesh Ram Bhandary, assistant director of Boston University's Global Economic Governance Initiative and a leading expert on renewable energy in BRI countries joins Eric & Cobus to discuss the complex, confusing role that coal plays in Chinese energy policy.SHOW NOTES:The Journal of Energy Research and Social Science: Banking on coal?

Saying what others are afraid to with Communications Leader Nancy Murphy   Founder & President, CSR Communications Nancy's spent her career saying what others are afraid to – and learning to say it in ways that others will listen. She's the founder and president of CSR Communications and creator of Intrapreneurs Influence Lab. Her passion is helping leaders of change within established organizations (intrapreneurs) influence and persuade others so that they can realize their vision for change faster, with less frustration and resistance. From her Catholic school student days challenging stereotypes of girls, to her first job after college convincing nonprofits to engage youth volunteers, or her role as board chair of a global nonprofit attempting to transform the way we do international development, Nancy's experienced the challenges of leading big change within established organizations. As an “intrapreneur” herself, she made all the mistakes you can make and now helps others learn from them. Nancy's worked in philanthropy for Steve and Jean Case's family foundation, as a federal government program officer with the Corporation for National & Community Service, and as a global consultant for APCO Worldwide, where her clients included UPS, Johnson Controls, Target, and W.K. Kellogg Foundation. Nancy mentors and advises executives from local governments, federal agencies, global nonprofits, foundations, and Fortune 100 companies. As a trainer and speaker, Nancy's shared her expertise from Kuala Lumpur to Kansas City and London to Las Vegas.

Over 40 years ago, he pioneered research on the Dionysian mysteries of ancient and classical Greece. He was shunned and ostracized by some of his peers, but pursuing the truth was always more important to Carl than being relevant to current dogmatic beliefs. In this discussion, Carl brings his decades of learning and wisdom from studying the shamanic roots of Western culture – roots that have been unpopular to discuss until very recently.

On today's show, we're going all the way back to May 5th, 2014 when we did an exclusive interview with the legendary John Anthony West. This is perhaps our favorite interview we've ever done. John Anthony West was an American author, lecturer, guide, and proponent of the Sphinx water erosion hypothesis in geology. Influenced by R.A. Schwaller de Lubicz,  in 1993 his work with Robert M. Schoch, a geologist and associate professor of natural science at the College of General Studies at Boston University was presented by Charlton Heston in an NBC special called “The Mystery of the Sphinx” that won a News & Documentary Emmy Award for Best Research and a nomination for Best Documentary. The documentary contends that the main type of weathering evident on the Great Sphinx and surrounding enclosure walls could only have been caused by prolonged and extensive rainfall during the time period from 10,000 to 5000 BCE and was carved out of limestone bedrock by an ancient advanced culture. This challenged the conventional dating of the carving of the statue circa 2500 BCE. West suggested that the Sphinx may be over twice as old as originally determined, whereas Schoch made a more conservative determination of between 5000 and 7000 BCE.

The Great Sphinx of Giza is among the most widely recognized monuments in the world, and arguably one of the most astounding testaments left to us by past cultures. Archaeology has revealed many details about the way of life in Egypt at the time of its construction, although a number of questions remain. Robert Schoch, Ph.D., is a Boston University geologist who has studied the Sphinx for decades. His work there beginning in the 1990s led him to believe that the age of the monument may be greater than historians generally believe, an idea that has fueled his search for further evidence of a "forgotten civilization" which may have existed earlier than is generally thought. We discuss all of this with Schoch, and his rationale for extending the age of Giza's Sphinx, on this edition of The Micah Hanks Program.  The story doesn't end here... become an X Subscriber and get access to even more weekly content and monthly specials.

After four family members died in 2007 the focus of Hodgson's work changed from health/wellness to grief healing, and she is the author of 10 grief resources. Hodgson cared for three generations of family members. When her disabled husband was dying, she searched for ways to de-stress. To her surprise, she found a half hour of doodling refreshed her and she was able to return to caregiving with new energy. If doodling helped her Hodgson figured it could help others. Hodgson is Assistant Editor of the Open to Hope website, a member of the Association of Health Care Journalists, Alliance of Independent Authors, Rave Reviews Book Club, Rave Writers International Society of Authors, and Minnesota Coalition for Death Education and Support. She has appeared on more than 190 talk radio shows, including CBS Radio, dozens of television stations, including CNN, and dozens of Blog Talk Radio programs. A popular guest, she has given presentations at public health, Alzheimer's, bereavement, and caregiving conferences.

Charlie Coyle has charted a unique path during his hockey career, having grown up in Weymouth, MA before playing college hockey at Boston University and ultimately being drafted into the NHL by the San Jose Sharks. He spent the first 6 seasons of his career playing for the Minnesota Wild before being traded to his hometown Boston Bruins in 2019. The 2021-22 season will be Charlie's third full season with the Bruins, and he will enter training camp this fall after spending the summer recovering from offseason knee surgery. As most hockey fans know, NHL players are often very quiet about the injuries they deal with during the season – and it isn't until after the playoffs end that you hear about all the aches and pains the athletes endured during the season.  Charlie is no stranger to the brutality of the NHL season, and has been coming into our TB12 Performance & Recovery Center in Boston for treatment sessions throughout each of the last three seasons. He understands that you can't perform at a high level without a consistent focus on recovery, and has made pliability a key part of his preparation throughout the season.

Critical Race Theory boils down to not just a theory, but a worldview. And if you reject that worldview, you're labeled a racist, bigoted, mean-spirited, and ignorant. Here are just a few examples of that worldview: In the name of equity, UCLA law professor and critical race theorist Cheryl Harris has proposed suspending private property rights, seizing land and wealth, and redistributing them along racial lines. https://nypost.com/2021/05/06/what-critical-race-theory-is-really-about/ (https://nypost.com/2021/05/06/what-critical-race-theory-is-really-about/) Ibram X. Kendi, who directs the Center for Antiracist Research at Boston University, has proposed the creation of a federal Department of Antiracism. This department would be independent of (i.e., unaccountable to) the elected branches of government and would have the power to nullify, veto or abolish any law at any level of government and curtail the speech of political leaders and others deemed insufficiently “antiracist.” https://nypost.com/2021/05/06/what-critical-race-theory-is-really-about/ (https://nypost.com/2021/05/06/what-critical-race-theory-is-really-about/) One practical result of the creation of such a department would be the overthrow of capitalism, since, according to Kendi, “in order to truly be antiracist, you also have to truly be anticapitalist.” https://nypost.com/2021/05/06/what-critical-race-theory-is-really-about/ (https://nypost.com/2021/05/06/what-critical-race-theory-is-really-about/) Support this podcast
