For the last year I have been listening a lot to Jordan Persons material and I’m in the prosses of finishing his program "past and future authoring". I find Peterson’s material and programs valuable and interesting. I think he’s doing important work especially for young men, even though there is something about his material that doesn’t feel right. I have a hard time articulate what exactly it is (particularly in English). Peterson is obviously more intelligent and competent than myself so i feels it’s out of my league to criticize him. I’m really curious about what the 10% of Peterson’s stuff you don’t agree with Sam. I and so many other people would really appreciate if you can talk about this in a podcast. And if you think the disagreement is important, don’t wait until you do the events with Peterson.

What is your advice for people of average intelligence who want to become reasonably well-educated/intellectually sophisticated? Given the huge chasm that now exists between the cognitive elite and everyone else, it seems to me that this is one of the more important questions that someone like you could spend time thinking about and answering.
