  1. Episode #156 – 3 Days to Kill The Flop House

    Arg! This movie. As soon as my friend and I saw “McG”, we knew what we were in for. I hated that this movie didn’t even follow it’s own rules with the heartrate/hallucination conflict, the CIA broad who was at almost every action scene and could have been doing the job herself. Why dis she need Costner so badly? The bad guys who are trying to be inconspicuous yet are blasting off in public AND a prom??? Plus the Wolf could have easily been the boyfriend’s father which would have added a much needed layer to the character. Who brings their business partner to their son’s prom???

    I was MUCH more interested in the father/daughter story than the CIA action and the only fun moment was the Italian recipe scene.

    Costner was ok, but screw this movie.

    Besson has NO idea how to write women.

  10. You Are Not So Smart podcast 020: The Future - James Burke and Matt Novak - Boing Boing

    You are Not So Smart is hosted by David McRaney, a journalist and self-described psychology nerd. In each episode, David explores cognitive biases and delusions, and is often joined by a guest expert.

    If you love educational entertainment - programs about science, nature, history, technology and everything in between - it is a safe bet that the creators of those shows were heavily influenced by the founding fathers of science communication: Carl Sagan, David Attenborough, and James Burke.

    In this episode of the You Are Not So Smart Podcast we sit down with James Burke and discuss the past, the present, and where he sees us heading when we arrive in a future where scarcity is rare and home manufacturing can produce just about anything you desire.

    James Burke is a legendary science historian who created the landmark BBC series Connections which provided an alternative view of history and change by replacing the traditional “Great Man” timeline with an interconnected web in which all people influence one another to blindly direct the flow of progress. Burke is currently writing a new book about the coming age of abundance, and he continues to work on his Knowledge Web project.

    We also sit down with Matt Novak, creator and curator of Paleofuture, a blog that explores retro futurism, sifting through the many ways people in the past predicted how the future would turn out, sometimes correctly, mostly not.

    Together, Burke and Novak help us understand why we are to terrible at predicting the future and what we can learn about how history truly unfolds so we can better imagine who we will be in the decades to come.

    David McRaney is a journalist and self-described psychology nerd. He’s the author of the books You Are Not So Smart and You Are Now Less Dumb. He has written for several publications, including The Atlantic and Psychology Today. He lives in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.
