  1. What the ’90s Web Can Teach Us About the Future of the Internet

    Fire up your Netscape Navigators! Alli and Jen talk to Jay Hoffmann, author of The History of the Web, about his research into the early internet.

    The History of the Web is a weekly newsletter that began as a place for coders to reminisce about CSS and Bulletin Board software. But it quickly evolved into a definitive timeline of our shared online history. The story of the Web (the public-facing network of pages that everyone has access to) is arguably the most important sociological endeavor of our time.

    This week on 2 Girls 1 Podcast, Alli and Jen (actors who perform weird internet stuff on stage) chat with Jay Hoffmann, author of The History of the Web, about his inspiration and research into the early internet, and the proto-communities that formed online in the ’90s around weblogs, browser wars, grief, and virtual pets.

  4. Atheist Debates - Arguing for vs against propositions

    Part of the Atheist Debates Patreon project: http://www.patreon.com/AtheistDebates

    In order to clear up some confusion and work toward a couple of different video series, it’s important to clarify the difference between arguing for and arguing against positions…and how to be clear that you’re arguing against whether belief in X is reasonable (burden of proof met) or against whether X is true.

    The distinctions between "I am not convinced" and "I am convinced of the opposite" as well as "I am convinced your reasoning is flawed" and "I am convinced your conclusion is false"…are both important clarifications when arguing.

  5. Atheist Debates - Personal Testimony vs Data

    Part of the Atheist Debates Patreon project: http://www.patreon.com/AtheistDebates

    A lengthy discussion about politics and religion over my Xmas vacation resulted in a strange conversation roadblock about whether it was more justified to rely on personal testimony than data.

    Much like trying to convince someone that they DO, in fact, value logic…by using logic, we can similarly show that they ARE valuing data, and that the primary difference is what they know or trust about the source - and whether or not that trust is warranted.

  9. FFR 62: Starship Troopers

    You’re going to love this week’s phenomenal conversation about Starship Troopers (1997) with special guests Mary Robinette Kowal and Max Temkin!

    Tune in for a thought-provoking discussion (and very amicable disagreement) about how successfully the film executes its satire of fascist military fantasies. Just what are the possibilities and limits of satire? What can director Paul Verhoeven’s career tell us about this "pointed critique of American imperialism"? And exactly how long will it take Anita to remember the name of the game Spec Ops without Carolyn to help? Timestamps: 0:00 - Introductions (special guests Mary Robinette Kowal and Max Temkin) 1:47 - Pop Culture News Terry Crews is amazing and does not deserve or need any commentary from comedian D.L. Hughley Shout out to the SAG Awards winners we like; no mention of those winners we don’t like 5:39 - Starship Troopers 41:20 What’s Your FREQ Out You Owe Me a Murder Martha Ann Maxwell
