@mike today’s episode on Ask Science Mike was beautiful. You are able to communicate and explain intricate scientific ideas while being incredibly compassionate. I enjoy John Oliver’s snark/irony/sarcasm too, but I think we need more vulnerable, emphatetic and real content in the world, and I believe you do that very well. Thank you, Mike.

Has anyone else here watched “Tim’s Vermeer”? It is the most fascinating documentary I have ever watched and I can’t recommend it enough. If you’re into art, watch it!

I’ve recently bought a PS4 and it came with the Spider Man game, which was absolutely phenomenal. What are some of your favorite games you’ve played on the PS4? I’m in need of recommendations!

Has anyone else here read Mistakes Were Made (but not by me)? An awesome book on cognitive dissonance, confirmation bias and self-justification.


Tonight in my weakly peace prayers meeting we prayed that we could all learn to better love our neighbors, and then I thought about how the earth/environment/creation is also our neighbor. And also how the generations after ours are our neighbors. Why is it so hard for so many Americans to see the earth and the future as neighbors we should love?

Life is all about doing the next right thing.

Sometimes, the next step towards your next book, your next talk, your next project, dream or work in the world, is something as elementary as unpacking boxes and hanging up clothes.

Let’s just keep doing the next right thing.

Realizing that one thing I really love about this community is that as much as we all love @mike @vishnu @WilliamMatt22 and @hillarymcbride, the community isn't *about* them. This space doesn't feel like a cult of celebrity, it feels like a bunch of people who care about the same questions and have the same wonderings. Already have had so many great convos on here, without even really talking about the podcast itself. Thankful for the humility of the hosts and this space.

Any other fans of The Good Place here? Such a beautiful, interesting, hilarious show!

Any other The 1975 fans here? I absolutely love their latest record - the political/social/meta/existential commentary is brilliant, and it feels reconstructive instead of deconstructive/nihilist.

Hey everybody! My name is Lucas, I'm a 23 year old guitarist and I live in Nashville, TN. I was born and raised in São Paulo, Brazil and I moved to the US when I was 18. I went to music school in LA, got my work Visa in 2017 (it was approved the day before Trump's Inauguration... phew) and moved to Nashville a little over a year ago. Anyone else here lives in Nashville?
