Nice interview subjects! Very impressive. I'd be curious to hear what made you decide to make an ideological Turing test part of every episode. It's clearly very in line with EA ideals, but why that exercise in particular?

Thanks :) The idea behind the Ideological Turing Test is (a) to put epistemic rationality into the spotlight (b) to see how good a model the guests have of the debate and how well they considered the other side, which should help you think about how seriously you should take their claims (c) we think it's kind of fun :)
