#82 – RJD2
2020 sees the release of “The Fun Ones”, the 7th solo album in the constantly expanding RJD2 catalog. The album draws largely from that basic DNA of hip-hop, funk music, but taken to a level of sophistication not seen before from this guy. Heavy on the brass, plenty of thump, and some slicker than average chord changes all add up to a rollicking good time. On “One Of A Kind”, RJ links up with Homeboy Sandman to push the levels of syncopation into the red. On “Pull Up On Love”, longtime collaborators STS and Khari Mateen reconvene to bring the spirit of James Brown to the quintessential Atlanta rib shack. Jordan Brown steps in to bring a falsetto lilt over a cacophonous drum break that would leave Ginger Baker scratching his chin. And the duo who brought you Magnificent City(Aceyalone and yours truly) reform on “A Genuine Gentleman”, a futuristic Meter’s-esque groove with the king of west coast abstract rhyming. All in all, the album flirts with vocal stylings, but stays firmly on-task for the mission of propelling the world of modern funk and instrumental music forward. Assembled as a mixtape with samples taken from a number of conversations with his contemporaries, the album leads a secondary role as a themed statement on the subject of, well, I’ll let you figure that out.

Philosopher of mind Keith Frankish is one of the leading proponents of “illusionism,” the theory that argues that your subjective experience is a trick of the mind. It’s a counterintuitive theory, but Keith makes the case for it in this episode, while explaining the other leading theories of consciousness and why he rejects them. He writes mainly about the human mind and is well known for defending an illusionist view of phenomenal consciousness and a two-level theory of the human mind. He has authored two books -- a monograph on the structure of the mind and a textbook on consciousness -- and has edited several collections, including a volume of essays on dual-process theories of reasoning, handbooks to cognitive science and artificial intelligence, and a collection of articles on illusionism as a theory of consciousness. He is currently working on several new projects, including new two books on consciousness.

#66 – Gary Fettke
Gary Fettke, an orthopedic surgeon, was sanctioned in 2016 by regulators (the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency or AHPRA) for recommending a low-carb lifestyle to patients he felt could improve their health by changing their diets. As we wrote in November 2016, Dr. Fettke was officially ‘silenced’ by the AHPRA; this means he was forbidden to give diet-related advice to his patients. The AHPRA has repealed its decision in its entirety and cleared Dr. Fettke of all charges. He also received a written apology: Connect with Gary Fettke: http://www.nofructose.com/ https://isupportgary.com/ https://www.facebook.com/belindanofructose/ T:  @FructoseNo IG: @isupportgary www.nutritionforlife.healthcare Personal Health Coaching: https://www.primalosophy.com/ Nick Holderbaum’s Weekly Newsletter: Sunday Goods (T): @primalosophy (IG): @primalosophy iTunes: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-primalosophy-podcast/id1462578947 YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBn7jiHxx2jzXydzDqrJT2A The Unfucked Firefighter Challenge
