Stupid, and stupider

Every time I listen to Radiolab, or The Hidden Brain, it actively makes me stupider. Not just with what’s got to be the hosts willful pretend [1] stupidity in order to get the presenter to explain it to them, but the whooshing sound as the point is missed over and over again.


[1] Dogs, I hope it’s pretend. Surely they haven’t done and hosted an hour-long show for years, and never read about the subject they are discussing. Is there no way to do this in which you don’t have to 1) be ignorant, or 2) pretend to be ignorant?
