The Best Debate in the Universe - Quantum mechanics is an exciting branch of physics that deals with the properties of the very small. Many of the theories in this field are hotly contested, and some have even left the door open to introduce philosophy into science. That leads us to this week's debate: CAN QUANTUM MECHANICS PROVE REALITY IS SUBJECTIVE?
Monday January 15th 2018
Physicist James Ellias joins us this week to debate: is quantum mechanics proof that reality is subjective? This was an excellent debate that's grounded enough to avoid psuedo-scientific bullshit while simultaneously scratching your philosophical and scientific itch. That's what I do every time anyone interacts with me, as I am both a supreme philosopher and a supreme scientist. Watch the video version here at Madcast Media Network YouTube channel:
Rucka and James are both objectivists, which means that you'll hear a lot of exasperated sighs from both sides of the debate. Mikey Bolts couldn't make it this week due to explosive diarrhea. Last week's guest, Alan Denton calls in to gloat about his win, and Jesse P-S calls in to shit on podcasts in general.
And here's the new bonus episode:

Finally we round out the episode with a story that makes my dick shrivel with anger: 6-year-olds dabbing. Plus a fake ballistic missile warning for Hawaii. Plus some alt-right idiots trying to arrest the mayor of London "non-violently." Did you know non-violent also means peaceful? Huh!
