Tamler wades into a Twitter controversy about Serena Williams – could this be his fast-track pass into the IDW? And since we’re talking about that, why not throw in a discussion of Louis CK’s surprise set at the Comedy Cellar? In the second segment, we step outside of last week’s social media culture wars to discuss “But I Could Be Wrong,” a paper by philosopher George Sher from Rice University. What happens once we realize that our moral convictions are often not better justified than the convictions of people who disagree with us? Does that mean it’s no longer rational to act on them? And is the problem deeper for moral beliefs than it is for empirical or aesthetic beliefs?
