James A. Lindsay holds degrees in physics and mathematics, with a doctorate in the latter. His previous books include Dot, Dot, Dot: Infinity Plus God Equals Folly and Life in Light of Death.
He has been in the news for submitting, along with Peter Boghossian and Helen Pluckrose, a series of hoax papers to peer-review (seven of which were published) in fields that categorise as “grievance studies”.
In This Episode We Discuss

- How the “grievance studies” fields are published work that is anti-scientific
- Idea laundering
- How these fields of study do not continue the important and noble liberal work of the true civil rights movements
- How big of a problem actually is this?
