Episode 117: Mintyvan

Bullies. Troublemakers. Destroyers. We all know them, we all detest them, and some of us actively fear them. But are “Jokers,” the wildcards of society, actually a fundamental reason why society works? Writing for ThisOrThat.com, Benjamin Chabot-Hanowell recently summarized a study out of Spain that first ran in the Journal of Theoretical Biology concluding just such a possibility. Never ones to take science at face value, Kevin, Kiki, and I joined forces with fan-turned-guest Matt Epperson to tackle this proposal head-on. So get ready for a wild ride through Gotham, game theory, and cooperative action… it’s BF time!
