On Episode 216 I sit down with Scott Graham. Scott is a friend of mine from CrossFit Roots and you might recall my previous episode(#208) with his wife, Blakely Graham. If you enjoyed that conversation then you will most definitely enjoy my conversation with her other half. Scott grew up in Texas but is not your stereotypical, "Howdy Ya'll, Texas Vs. Everybody" type of Texas guy. Scott was the President of the Juggling Club at UT-Austin and was also in a band called the Schlitz Quartz which only sang songs about beer. Scott worked at IBM for 25 years and is now semi-retired and searching for his next move. Scott joined CrossFit Roots in 2009 after being adamant about not joining "the cult". The rest is history. This conversation was a whole lot of fun and I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did! Thank you for listening!

On this episode, Cullan talks with Professor Michal Kšiňan about his monograph on the Slovak national hero and co-founder of Czechoslovakia, Milan Rastislav Štefánik. Michal talks about Štefánik's military career and meteoric rise and the place he continues to hold in Czechoslovakia history and memory. Thanks for listening! ABOUT THE BOOK https://www.routledge.com/authors/i21001-michal-kian This is the first scientific biography of Milan Rastislav Štefánik (1880–1919) that is focused on analysing the process of how he became the Slovak national hero. Although he is relatively unknown internationally, his contemporaries compared him “to Choderlos de Laclos for the use of military tactics in love affairs, to Lawrence of Arabia for vision, to Bonaparte for ambition ... and to one of apostles for conviction”. He played the key role in founding an independent Czechoslovakia in 1918 through his relentless worldwide travels during the First World War in order to create the Czechoslovak Army: he visited Serbia and Romania on the eve of invasion by the Central Powers, Russia before the February revolution, the United States after it declared war on Germany, Italy dealing with the consequences of defeat in the Caporetto battle, and again when Russia plunged into Civil War. Several historical methods are used to analyse the aforementioned central research question of this biography such as social capital to explain his rise in French society, the charismatic leader to understand how he convinced and won over a relatively large number of people; more traditional political, military, and diplomatic history to show his contribution to the founding of Czechoslovakia, and memory studies to analyse his extraordinary popularity in Slovakia. By mapping his intriguing life, the book will be of interest to scholars in a broad range of areas including history of Central Europe, especially Czechoslovakia, international relations, social history, French society at the beginning of the 20th century and biographical research. ABOUT THE GUEST Michal Kšiňan is a researcher at the Institute of History of the Slovak Academy of Sciences in Bratislava. He defended his PhD theses in history summa cum laude in 2011. He wrote his PhD theses en cotutelle between University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, where he later also lectured (2018–2019), and the Institute of History of the Slovak Academy of Sciences, Bratislava where he currently works. He wrote several books about Štefánik, edited or coedited 5 volumes and published dozens of scientific papers on different topics. His works were published in Slovak, French, English, Italian, German and Russian. In 2006, he graduated from history and French language and literature at the Faculty of Pedagogy, Comenius University, Bratislava. In 2007, he got his Master 2 recherche from Contemporary Central European History at University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne. PRODUCER'S NOTE: This episode was recorded on November 1, 2022 via Zoom.

The search for a predictable framework to relations between China and the West provides some limited hope for 2023, but the fundamental differences between these actors remain, and another difficult year likely lies ahead.

On this episode, Lera speaks with Emily Joan Elliott of H-Net about what got her interested in Soviet and post-Soviet history and her particular focus on migration to Moscow and the Priemnaia (reception desk) of the Supreme Soviet. Per Elliott's research: "the Priemnaia received thousands of complaints and petitions annually, often from individuals or groups who argued that local soviets or enterprises failed to deliver on various aspects of their material wellbeing, including housing. But the Priemnaia also provided a place for these petitioners to voice their concerns and plead for the state to intercede on their behalf... Although the Soviet bureaucracy was a behemoth, the Priemnaia provided its citizens with direct means of engagement with government officials, cutting through red tape, and improving their material wellbeing." Thanks for listening! ABOUT THE GUEST Hailing from New York, Dr. Emily Joan Elliott is the associate director for research and publications at H-Net (https://www.h-net.org/). She received her PhD in Soviet and post-Soviet history from Michigan State University in 2019. After earning her degree, she pursued opportunities both inside and outside the academy.

The Genetic Lottery: Why DNA Matters for Equality

In recent years, scientists have shown that DNA makes us different, in our personalities and in our health — and in ways that matter for success in our current society. Reclaiming genetic science from the legacy of eugenics, Kathryn Paige Harden offers a bold new vision of society where everyone thrives, regardless of how one fares in the genetic lottery. Harden is Professor of Psychology at UT Austin, where she leads the Developmental Behavior Genetics lab and co-directs the Texas Twin Project. Using research from her book The Genetic Lottery, Harden dismantles dangerous ideas about racial superiority and challenging us to grapple with what equality means in a world where people are born different. Weaving personal stories with scientific evidence, Harden shows why our refusal to recognize the power of DNA perpetuates the myth of meritocracy, and argues that we must acknowledge the role of genetic luck if we are ever to create a fair society.

Welcome to The Nonlinear Library, where we use Text-to-Speech software to convert the best writing from the Rationalist and EA communities into audio. This is: r.i.c.e.'s neonatal lifesaving partnership is funded by GiveWell; a description of what we do, published by deanspears on December 9, 2022 on The Effective Altruism Forum. [The Forum found an unexpected way to help! A previous version of this post mistakenly suggested that a large donation from GiveWell risked changing r.i.c.e. from a public charity to a private foundation. We previously experienced this sort of risk with funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. We are very excited to learn from a Forum poster that GiveWell poses no such risk! Thank you! While we are still accepting additional donations to improve the health of a larger number of babies, there is no additional urgency to maintain the charity status of r.i.c.e.] I'm writing on behalf of my team at r.i.c.e., which is honored to be highlighted in GiveWell's “Our recommendations for giving in 2022” post. In this post, I present the details of our program that prevents neonatal deaths inexpensively by causing the implementation of a Kangaroo Mother Care program in India. A description of our work, in brief Some of you may be familiar with my work in population ethics or as Director of the Population Wellbeing Initiative at UT-Austin (or, more likely, for distributing utilitarianism t-shirts). Since long before this phase of my career, I've also been Executive Director of r.i.c.e., a 501(c)3 public charity working on early-life health in rural north India. In collaboration with the Government of Uttar Pradesh and an organization in India, we support a Kangaroo Mother Care program to promote neonatal survival in a context where low birth weight babies would not otherwise receive such lifesaving care. KMC is a well-established tool for preventing deaths that we did not invent. Instead, our contribution is managerial innovation: We developed a public-private partnership to cause the government's KMC guidelines to in fact be implemented cost-effectively in a public hospital where many low birth weight babies are born. That public healthcare systems in developing countries fail to implement life-saving policies and programs is a well-known problem in global health and in development economics. Because KMC is known to prevent neonatal death, and because the collaboration that we fostered found new ways to overcome the barriers to implementation in a context where many babies are not otherwise receiving needed care, it is not surprising that we can prevent neonatal deaths inexpensively. Our statistics show that we save lives very cost-effectively; indeed, about as inexpensively as any life-saving program known to EA. These statistics led to investments this year by two EA funders: first by Founders Pledge and then by GiveWell, after in-depth investigations of our work and our evidence. We have big plans for 2023, including continuing to save lives, starting a formal impact evaluation, and doing the advocacy and partnership-building needed to scale up the program to more districts. If you would like to further support this work, please donate to r.i.c.e. at this link to PayPal. It will let you donate either one time or by establishing a recurring monthly donation. If you don't like PayPal, you can mail a check to RICE Institute, Inc., 472 Old Colchester Rd, Amston, CT 06231. Longer set of details What is Kangaroo Mother Care and why is it good? Kangaroo Mother Care (KMC) is a way to inexpensively keep low birth weight babies (and other neonates) clean, fed, and warm. Here is GiveWell's summary of Kangaroo Mother Care in general. It is a bit broader than our program. To emphasize: KMC has been well-known to save lives for years. Our workwomanlike contribution is merely to get it implemented in a place where there are lots of low birth weight babies, in part because mothers are themselves often underweigh...

And Robyn Bergesen, who I speak to on the podcast, has joined my team for that! This gives me a greater ability to affect change in my patients when it comes to making diet and lifestyle changes and I'm very excited to be able to offer it. More information on pricing and scheduling is available on my website at www.madinamedicine.com. We discuss: What is a health coach? Why are they important? What kinds of things do you focus on in a session? How do you structure the sessions for the best success? How diet and lifestyle play such an important role in improving chronic disease. Our plans for introducing Health Coaching in our practice with details on pricing and scheduling. Guest Bio: Robyn's passion for functional health and wellness began over 10 years ago when she was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. At only 18 years old, she was determined that there had to be another way to live the rest of her life than on countless rounds of steroids and antibiotics. She was lucky enough to find a functional practitioner who helped rebuild her health and educate her on how to maintain this level of wellness throughout her life. Since then she completed her degree at UT Austin, starting first as a dance major and then switching into sports management with a minor in business. She got her Health Coaching degree through the Institute for Functional Medicine and has spent the last year developing meaningful relationships with clients and working together toward a positive outcome. She has a strong passion for meeting people where they are and working towards their goals together.

On this episode, Sergio talks with Yacov Zohn, football historian and former semi-professional footballer in Russia, France, and the US. Yacov's research into the development of Soviet football sheds light on the immense political pressure placed on the primary USSR team, the Sbornaya, to win each and every game--but ultimately the unrealistic aim to earn gold at the Olympics in 1952 is never realized. Yacov also discusses how Lavrentiy Beria himself was involved in the politics of the sport. The USSR furthermore declined the invitation to compete in the FIFA World Cup, undoubtedly due to concerns from Beria and others about the Soviet team's inability to perform with top teams internationally. ABOUT THE GUEST Yacov Zohn is a semi-professional footballer and a PhD candidate in history at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His dissertation traces the history of the national Soviet soccer team from its official recognition by the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) in 1946 to its tortuous disintegration in the early 1990s. His aim is to elucidate how the narrative of Soviet sports history intersects with the kaleidoscope of competing narratives from nation-states and global sport governing institutions to form a complex mosaic of transnational sports history.

Connor Crawford | Pike Robotics - Autonomous Robotic Inspection Platform Transforming Inspection of Oil & Gas facilities through Custom Robotic Solutions Pike Robotics was spun out of UT's Nuclear and Applied Robotics Group and originally funded by Phillips 66 to help with the real need they have for maintaining their product storage and refining facilities. We provide a next-gen robotic solution for in-service inspection of floating roof storage tanks (simulation and demo of robot Here) (Inspection results video Here). Our alternative to manned entry inspections increases safety of personnel, reduces operational issues associated with confined space permits and tank downtime, and accurately quantifies previously subjective inspection results. This approach also makes the seal inspection process simpler and less costly to the tank owner operators. The ability to monitor a large source of methane emissions also allows Pike to play an important role in cleaning up our environment, while at the same time improving the Environment, Social, & Governance scores of many companies in the Energy space. www.pikerobotics.com About Connor: Connor is the CEO & Co-Founder of Pike Robotics. He officially transitioned into the world of Robotics by returning to graduate school at UT Austin in 2019 and working as a GRA for the Nuclear and Applied Robotics Lab (NRG).
