The fourth episode of the Duck of Minerva Podcast just went live. This one is about an hour. Patrick Thaddeus Jackson and I talk about the “End of IR Theory” question. But not before, according to my wife, we engage in a low-rent click-and-clack routine — in which we attempt to falsify the hypothesis that we share a brain.


  • Against the “Shared Brain” Hypotheses
  • PTJ and DHN Fail to Discuss SF
  • No to Yes.
  • The End of IR Theory?

Note: the publication date of the podcasts remains in flux, but I am aiming to have them appear Friday-Sunday each week.
