No Drama Discipline with Dan Siegel - Reboot Your Kids Recast 007

While the Reboot Your Kids website lives on, it no longer hosts the podcasts I recorded with Kevin Geary last year. For posterity's sake, I'm putting those shows into the Choice Conversations feed.

In this episode, Kevin interviews Dr. Dan Siegel about his latest book No Drama Discipline. His book provides an effective, compassionate road map for dealing with tantrums, tensions, and tears. Dr. Siegel’s work is unique in that it places an emphasis on helping parents understand the relationship between brain development and their child’s behavior. Give the show a listen!

Gene Wars, IQ, and Immigration - The Fall of Stefan Molyneux part 3

Wes Bertrand and I are joined by geneticist Kevin McKernan for more analysis of Stefan Molyneux and Freedomain Radio. This time we take a close look at Molyneux's Gene Wars series, and the R vs K hypothosis discussed within. Kevin details how R vs K has long been dismissed as pseudo science by the scientific community, and that there is no evidence for the claims Stefan is making that political leanings are tied to genetics. From there, Kevin talks about how the claims Stef is making about IQ being linked to genetics also have no scientific evidence to back them. We discuss race quite a bit in this episode, and even dig into global warming a bit. This is a can't miss show, especially if you are an FDR listener!

Cannabis plants per year are derived from DEA seizure data (likely flawed but black market data is hard to get to)
http://www.drugscience.org/Archive/bcr2/estproc.html
http://www.dea.gov/ops/cannabis.shtml

DEA report over 4M plants seized and believes to only seize less than 10% of whats out there.
10,000 metric tons at 1 pound per plant = 2204 X10,000 or 22M plants in the USA alone (5% of global population)
about 4M people were born in the USA in 2010
