In response to Kerry Howley’s meticulous reporting on the deceptions of Andrew Huberman in New York Magazine, Huberstans around the world are braying that the man’s private life has nothing to do with his virtue as a science communicator. Not so, we argue in this brief. Deception in one mirrors deception in the other, and there is no private life for the influencer who wants to influence your private life. Beyond shilling for Athletic Greens and saying that sunscreen winds up in your brain, Huberman opines on relationships, sex, and addiction issues as if he is an expert—instead of (an alleged) hot mess. Pseudoscience and pseudotherapy are parallel harms—both using manipulative jargon to convince consumers or women respectively that the influencer is well-researched and using best practices to be of service. So we advise all Huberstans to view their hero… holistically. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

If you're a fan of workplace comedies like the office or satire like the onion,


then I have a podcast that I know you'll love. It's called Mega. Mega is an improvised satire from the staff of a fictional mega church.


That's the premise each week.


The hosts Holly Laurent and Greg Hess are joined by guests since people like Cecily Strong or Jen Hatmaker


to portray characters inside the colorful world


of Twin Hills Community Church,


which they describe as a mega church with a tiny family feel.


The result is a sharp-witted and hilarious look into the world of commercialized religion


using humor to cope with the frightening amount of power


that church and religion have. So I very much recommend you checking out Megas


episodes like the one with Saturday Night Live


Cecily Strong playing C.C. String, a hilarious character who's fresh out of jail and


also comedian Jason Mansukas, you may find yourself dying of laughter and perhaps inspired


to take an improv class yourself.


Mega is able to keep you laughing as you think and reflect about the world we live in.


You can find Mega on Apple Podcasts, Spotify,


or wherever you listen to podcasts.


This episode is brought to you by the Jordan Harbinger Show.


Do you want a new podcast to look forward to each week?


One that's entertaining, informative,


and packed with actionable content?


Come on, of course you do.
