The Reality Check #57: Free Will/Determinism + Interview with Evan Bernstein + Baby Booms/Blackouts

Free Will

Apologies for the poor audio quality in this episode. Due to a mysterious technical problem during recording, the track had too much noise to remove cleanly, resulting in lots of digital artifacts. The interview with Evan Bernstein at 13:50 sounds fine though.

This week Darren discusses “free will” and its implications, Jon interview Evan Bersntein of the Skeptics’ Guide to the Universe podcast, and Adam explores the myth that blackouts cause baby booms.
