In this episode, Zack and Brandon interview Dr. Param Srikantia and discuss several of the concepts he had raised in his talk "Why Life Sucks", such as the chattering monkey, Osho's teachings, and more. We also discuss the education system, how one can attempt to lessen confirmation bias, and how important it is to value people as humans, and not just because of their beliefs.
