"Dominant groups do not give up their power easily." That's according to law professor and OG Tiger Mom Amy Chua. I've thought about this statement quite a bit, and I've come to reject this framing of our current state of the world. It's catchy but also panicky and outraged, and makes us feel hopeless and doomed. 

I believe there's another way. While dominant groups may not give up power easily, there IS a way to resolve in vs. out-group conflicts peacefully and even (dare I say) "normally." And who couldn't use a strong dose of normal these days? 

As always, thank you for listening!

“In the polarized era, the outcome isn't really about the candidates. What matters is what percentage of the electorate is Democratic and Democratic leaners, and how they get activated.” - Rachel Bitecofer

Here’s a hard truth: One day you may be forgotten. Eugene and David debate why that truth might be tough for some of us to swallow, and why it may be okay not to be remembered. Also in this episode, both David and Eugene were recently triggered watching “dads behaving badly.” We talk about what (respectively) triggered us about dad behavior in the wild. As always, thank you for listening!

What’s in a name? Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker finally reveals the mystery of Rey’s identity what it means for the Skywalker saga. Eugene and I discuss our thoughts on the movie (spoiler alert!) and the future of SW franchise. Our conversation also spills beyond the screen to how questions of Rey’s identity tie in to the real world. Happy new year everyone and thank you as always for listening!
