On W.V.O. Quine's "Epistemology Naturalized" (1969). What justifies scientific theory? Not theory-free observations, as Quine shows us by considering how we figure out foreign languages. Instead of basing science on epistemology, Quine thought we need to make epistemology part of science. Get more at partiallyexaminedlife.com.

In this episode, I sat down with Vietnam War veteran and now best selling author William V. Taylor to talk about his memoir “On Full Automatic: Surviving 13 Months In Vietnam.” During the discussion we talked about his enlistment and training process, the types and nature of combat during his time there, the role of the environment and how factors like heat and terrain affected him, his relationship to civilians in Vietnam, his changing view of the nature of the enemy as the war went on, the ways that big picture military strategy often clashed with the realities on the ground, the human element of war, the importance of letter writing for him, and ultimately his thoughts on one of the main questions he asks in his book: was it worth it? Bill Taylor, author of "On Full Automatic: Surviving 13 Months in Vietnam" served in the First Battalion, Third Marine Regiment in Vietnam for 13 months in 1967 and 1968. He has spoken for Veteran's Organizations and to local schools about the Vietnam War. He currently belongs to the VFW, Military Order of the Purple Heart, Disabled American Veterans, Third Marine Division Association, and the Marine Corp League.

In order to build the cities of the future, there is a need for synergy between a number of elements and institutions and, as philanthropy evolves with the times, an active approach to impacting the necessary changes means an understanding of these sometimes disparate forces. Joining us on the show today to discuss his philanthropic philosophy and plans is the Founder of GitLab, Sid Sijbrandij. Sid is also a supporter of the Charter Cities Institute while occupying an active role in the nutrition, software, crypto, and non-profits spaces. Today, he generously shares his thoughts on what is needed right now in order to push things forward for the next generation of cities. We discuss GitLab's approach to helping Ukraine and their contingent of employees who live in the country and we touch on what needs attention in the longer term, especially with regards to bridging gaps between separate industries or institutions for shared benefit before Sid shares his thoughts on how AI will influence philanthropy in the coming years and what he hopes to see in the cities of the future. To hear all this and much more from a very special guest, join us on Seeding the Future!

In a world where freedom is often seen as one of the highest ethical priorities, it's worth taking a closer look at what freedom really is.

How does GiveWell's approach to charity differ from other charitable organizations? Why does GiveWell list such a small number of recommended charities? How does GiveWell handle the fact that different moral frameworks measure causes differently? Why has GiveWell increased its preference for health-related causes over time? How does GiveWell weight QALYs and DALYs? How much does GiveWell rely on a priori moral philosophy versus people's actual moral intuitions? Why does GiveWell have such low levels of confidence in some of its most highly-recommended charities or interventions? What should someone do if they want to be more confident that their giving is actually having a positive impact? Why do expected values usually tend to drop as more information is gathered? How does GiveWell think about second-order effects? How much good does the median charity do? Why is it so hard to determine how impactful charities are? Many charities report on the effectiveness of individual projects, but why don't more of them report on their effectiveness overall as an organization? Venture capitalists often diversify their portfolios as much as possible because they know that, even though most startups will fail, one unicorn can repay their investments many times over; so, in a similar way, why doesn't GiveWell fund as many projects as possible rather than focusing on a few high performers? Why doesn't GiveWell recommend more animal charities? Does quantification sometimes go too far?Elie Hassenfeld co-founded GiveWell in 2007 and currently serves as its CEO.

We are joined by none other than Daniel Mullins, the mastermind behind last year's mind-bending Inscryption, a game that wormed its way into our collective subconscious by subverting the medium and freaking us out (in a good way.) Clearly, we can't stop talking about this game, so we take full advantage of our time with Daniel, picking his brain about his iterative game design process, the importance of playtesting, and whether or not he actually murdered someone and buried the body in a forest for the Inscryption ARG. Also: Keanu's empty chair at the Game Awards, the possibility of balloon porn, and looking to The Orange Box for inspiration. You don't want to miss this one. This week's games: OneShot, by futurecat Dr. Langeskov, The Tiger, and The Terribly Cursed Emerald: A Whirlwind Heist, by Crows Crows Crows The Night Journey, by Game Innovation Lab This week's cause is the Maximum Impact Fund from GiveWell. Givewell uses their latest research to grant the funds to the recommended charity (or charities) where they believe they'll do the most good. More information at their website.

Is it possible to ever be truly happy? What if your happiness rests on a backbone of degradation and exploitation? Is it right to sacrifice the few for the many?

Spar was born and raised in the suburbs of New York City, attending public schools. A violinist since age 6, he earned his bachelor's degree in music education from Ohio State University, graduating in 1994. That same year, he went to Daytona Beach to teach at Turie T. Small Elementary School, where more than 90 percent of the students lived in poverty. The music teacher soon found his voice as an advocate and has worked ever since on behalf of public school students, schools, teachers and education staff professionals. “I could not read when I was in first grade,” Spar recalls. “I struggled in school. But the educators in my life were empowered to make my success a priority, and that's just what they did. I want the same world for my family and for all of Florida's children.” At Turie T. Small, Spar served as school-improvement chair for two years and as a union steward for seven years. He would go on to become president of his local union in May 2003 and led Volusia United Educators until he was elected FEA vice president in 2018. In September 2020, he was named FEA president after the previous president, Fedrick C. Ingram, was elected secretary-treasurer of the American Federation of Teachers. During his 15 years leading the Volusia union, Spar negotiated 14 contracts, handled numerous grievances and arbitrations, and spent many long hours advocating for members and working families. In 2017, he led the merger of the Volusia Teachers Organization and the Volusia Educational Support Association to create Volusia United Educators(link is external). The new union has nearly 3,800 members and represents more than 6,000 teachers, paraprofessionals and office specialists in Volusia County Schools. Throughout his career, Spar has served on committees and task forces for the AFT. At FEA, he spent eight years on the executive cabinet.

In this interview, Mitch Belkin and Daniel Belkin speak with Stephan Guyenet, PhD, about Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and Semaglutide. They discuss GLP-1's mechanisms of action, Anthony Sclafoni's experiments on food reinforcement and nutrient receptors in the small intestines. Finally, they touch on some exciting new weight loss drugs that may replace semaglutide and potentially even bariatric surgery.Who is Stephan Guyenet?Dr. Stephan Guyenet received his PhD in Neurobiology and Behavior from the University of Washington. Afterward, he completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the neuroscience of obesity. He is the author of the book The Hungry Brain. Dr. Guyenet is the founder & director of Red Pen Reviews, which publishes expert reviews of popular nutrition books with structured semi-quantitative evaluations. In addition, he is a senior researcher at GiveWell where he conducts cost effectiveness analyses on water quality interventions and malnutrition treatments in low income countries.What is GLP-1 ?Glucagon-like peptide-1 is a hormone produced by the intestines. It is an incretin, meaning it signals the pancreas to increase insulin secretion in a glucose-dependent manner. Initially, GLP-1 agonists were developed for the treatment of diabetes. In both animal and human models, it was discovered that GLP-1 agonists suppress food intake, which led to weight loss. This discovery spurred its use in obesity trials, including STEP 1. Citations for Stephan Guyenet:@WHsourceThe Promise and Impact of the Next Generation of Weight Loss DrugsNEJM - Once-Weekly Semaglutide in Adults with Overweight or ObesitySafety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of concomitant administration of multiple doses of cagrilintide with semaglutide 2·4 mg for weight management: a randomised, controlled, phase 1b trialDanuglipron (PF-06882961) in type 2 diabetes: a randomized, placebo-controlled, multiple ascending-dose phase 1 trialDiabetes Prevention Program - 58% reduction in progression from pre-diabetes to diabetes.Stephanguyenet.comMarch 2021 article in Works in Progress______________________Follow us @ExMedPod, and sign up for our newsletter at www.externalmedicinepodcast.com/subscribeDaniel Belkin and Mitch Belkin are brothers and 4th year medical students.  The External Medicine Podcast is a podcast exploring nontraditional medical ideas and innovation.
