Cynthia Garrett is a lawyer in California who is involved with the organization FACE, Families Advocating for Campus Equality. She discusses with David the problems with the existing Title IX procedures to investigate allegations of sexual assault by students at US colleges and universities, such as the use of a single investigator, pressure on colleges to increase the rate of sanctions, lack of access to evidence, and lack of cross-examination. They also how misunderstandings between young people, and misunderstandings of sexual consent can stimulate investigations when nobody is really at fault. The impact of campus sanctions on students and their families is also discussed. Garrett’s knowledge is derived from the 1500 cases that FACE has been involved with.

David discusses conspiracy theories with Kurtis Hagen, a former professor, who has written papers, books, and now a pamphlet, on the subject. He believes in “particularism”, that simply states that every theory that is tarred as a “conspiracy theory” needs to be evaluated individually on its merits, it’s logically absurd to a priori assume that all conspiracy theories are false, especially since we know that some (such as Watergate and absence of WMDs in Iraq) were belittled as conspiracy theories before being shown to be true.
