One of the many things I enjoyed about my recent conversation with Aaron Rabinowitz on his Embrace the Void podcast was concrete confirmation that one of my main aspirations f0r High Weirdness had met its target. That was the goal of weirding out in a “serious but not literal” way that pushed things as far as I could without invoking anything that a reasonably open-minded skeptic would feel compelled to reject out of hand. Rabinowitz is such a skeptic. He teaches philosophy at Rutgers, where he thinks about ethics from a largely analytic perspective, and though his show (and the companion Sci Fi podcast Philosophers in Space) ranges widely through many marvels, his bullshit detector is definitely set to stun. But he really grokked High Weirdness, and the conversation went to some excellent places. Definitely worth a listen.
