This week marks the return of our favourite palaeontologist/author Wayne Telford, along with Josh (the co-host of “Science, But Simple”), discussing what superpowers would be the most ideal to use in a realistic (less vigilante-like) sense and which ones they think they’d get if they were a fictional character. As well as the above, a fairly detailed discussion on human culling & utilitarianism takes reigns halfway through the talk, mentioning Thanos’ idea of balance and how, or if, it could work, followed by opinions on assisted suicide, “anti-natalism”, abortion and stem-cells. Next week will technically be a part 2 of this chat, but we are having them as two separate podcast episodes as the second half of the chat delves into different topical territory, where religion & faith and palaeontology are discussed, as well as Josh, Wayne & Mike’s favourite water-dwelling, land-dwelling and extinct creatures, so anyone who’s interested in learning about some cool new animals and some of the crazy things they do, be sure to return!
