Bret Weinstein has spent two decades advancing the field of evolutionary biology, and is currently working to uncover the evolutionary meaning of large scale patterns in human history, and seeking a game theoretically stable path forward for humanity. Dr. Weinstein earned a PhD in Biology from the University of Michigan, where he was given the Don Tinkle Award for distinguished work in Evolutionary Ecology, and he earned a BA in Biology from UCSC. He was a professor at The Evergreen State College for 14 years. He and his wife, Heather Heying, resigned in the wake of 2017 campus riots that focused in part on Weinstein and Heying’s opposition to a day of racial segregation and other college “equity” proposals. His scholarly research is focused on evolutionary trade-offs. He has worked on the evolution of senescence and cancer, species diversity gradients, and the adaptive significance of human morality and religion. He has written for The Wall Street Journal and testified to the U.S. Congress regarding questions of freedom of expression on college campuses. He is currently writing a book with his wife Heather Heying, which will provide an evolutionary toolkit for living a good and honorable life as an ape in the 21st century. He is currently the host of Bret Weinstein’s DarkHorse Podcast.
