This week our guest is Liv Boeree, who got her start studying astrophysics in England, became well known as one of the world’s most successful poker players, then transitioned into effective altruism and science communication.
In this conversation, we dip our toes into Liv’s background, game theory, and the mental frameworks and motivations Liv uses to navigate reality. But the greater part of discussion explores the ways in which social media is negatively influencing rational discourse and our ability to be rational actors.
