Nicholas Christakis is an unusual academic—a physician, a sociologist, and more. He is also a champion of free speech. Christakis is a Greek American, who grew up in both countries. He has a lofty position at Yale: Sterling Professor of Social and Natural Science. He has written a book about the pandemic, “Apollo’s Arrow.” He talks about this, both knowledgeably and movingly. He and Jay discuss a number of other issues too, including “wokeness” on campus, and the need for good old-fashioned pluralism. Get to know the extraordinary Nicholas Christakis.

    Thanks for the interview. I don’t know. I really feel like there is a certain disconnect –  even for those who have been through a woke mob situation like the professor – that it isn’t that bad or things will work out. At this point I’m rather pessimistic and wish those who have gone through an experience like he has would be sounding the warning more. Is he holding back because he’s still working for Yale?
