There are two guests on this episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show.
Dr. Hakeem Oluseyi is the author (with Joshua Horwitz) of the new book A Quantum Life: My Unlikely Journey from the Street to the Stars. He is also a professor at the Florida Institute of Technology, and a frequent contributor to the Discovery Channel and National Geographic. Hakeem has given multiple TED talks and is regularly invited to speak at science forums all around the world.
Hakeem reflects on how he managed to go from being an at-risk youth and self-described gangster nerd to one of the leading astrophysicists in the world. He shares the choices, luck, highs and lows, and random good fortune that pushed him along on that journey.
Hakeem also offers wisdom and advice about navigating the color line as a black scientist, the importance of mentors, and his relationship with the late Chadwick Bowsman. And of course, he does some teaching on the likelihood of UFOs visiting the planet Earth, dark matter, and the multiverse.
Jason Colavito is a professional skeptic and author. His investigations have appeared on the American Heroes Channel and the History Channel. Colavito’s essays and commentary have also been featured by The New Republic and other leading publications. His forthcoming book is The Legends of the Pyramids.
Jason returns to the podcast to offer his thoughts on the Pentagon’s newly released UFO/UAP report and what it does and does not reveal about “extraterrestrials” and other “exotic” and “unknown” “aircraft” and their supposed encounters with the United States military.
Chauncey DeVega continues to warn that Donald Trump and his regime did in fact attempt a military coup.
And Chauncey also highlights one of the funniest and most dark and revealing new episodes in the white right’s anti-black and anti-brown “critical race theory” moral panic – Christian fascist Pat Robertson channeling his Django Unchained nightmare about black people taking up the “whip handle” against white people.
