I feel all we should have to say is Sandy Hook was not a hoax. Unfortunately a number of people do believe that this tragic event, and others, was an attempt to regulate guns and spread discord in the world. Ranging from people thinking they are ballistic experts to lie detectors while relying on rolling news as fact, leads us to places where the death of innocent children can be spun in to a narrative where families are not torn apart but are harassed and accused.
This week on TLONs Myles and James are joined by David a evolutionary psychologist. Recently evolutionary psychology has been misinterpreted and painted in a negative light. Evolutionary psychology uses what we have learnt from the theory of Evolution and applies it to human psychology. On the face of it this should not have attracted much scorn yet today a number of people are happy to criticsise the field due to political belief.
Myles and James are joined by Fred Perlak from Monsanto co. Fred was part of the original team that developed and later launched Bt cotton. Fred went on to be VP of Monsanto co in Hawaii and became a distinguished science fellow. We were lucky enough to get an hour of Fred’s time to ask him what ever we liked.
Why do we respect privacy so much in the online community? Is it really that important? Are acts like ‘doxing’ serious? Myles and James talk about how important they view privacy and show some examples of where breaches of privacy have lead to real world issues

Myles and his co-host (Jack?) watch spooky ghost documentary. Unfortunately it really lacks in spookiness.

Myles and his cohost (James) are joined once again by the fantastic Thom Britton. Thom wants science and art to make fantastic things together, inspired by the true story of Hedy Lamarr and her invocation in wireless communication.
