Your brain hallucinates your conscious reality | Anil Seth. Right now, billions of neurons in your brain are working together to generate a conscious experience -- and not just any conscious experience, your experience of the world around you and of yourself within it. How does this happen? According to neuroscientist Anil Seth, we're all hallucinating all the time; when we agree about our hallucinations, we call it "reality." Join Seth for a delightfully disorienting talk that may leave you questioning the very nature of your existence.

Rank #1: A Cynic Goes to the Women’s Convention. We speak with Jezebel’s Megan Reynolds, freshly back from the Women’s Convention in Detroit, about her weekend in Social Justice City. Also: Paul Manafort is indicted and Prachi reads a spooky story.
Rank #2: Gloria Allred on Marines United & Sexual Assault in the Military. Iconic civil rights attorney Gloria Allred joins Joanna and Prachi to discuss the shocking Marines United nude photo scandal, in which male military members shared nonconsensual photos of current and former female colleagues online. The initial incident, tied with the persistent reports of sexual assault in the military, has shed new light on a larger culture of sexual harassment in the military that has gone unaddressed for years. They also speak with Miranda Petersen, executive director of military advocacy group Protect Our Defenders.
Rank #1: Praise for a Drunk 10-Year-Old. This week on The 451, your hosts aren't ashamed that they skipped out on the Congressional Address. That speech is still a good lead-in to talking about punditry, the old Malaysian Airlines 24/7 news cycle, Twitter conspiracies and uh, Russia. Their guest is the estimable Janai Nelson, associate director-general of the NAACP LDF, who has been down in Texas (with a broken leg!) fighting a court battle over some ugly voter ID laws.
Rank #2: Baby On the Window Ledge. This week, it's just your folksy, friendly hosts, sitting around and talking the talk. Summer, Jonathan and Jesse got together during the snowstorm to record their thoughts about affordable health care, the welfare state, the Overton window, and switching Trump and Clinton's genders. A special shout-out to cosplay wizard Ginny McQueen, who sent us all some resistance t-shirts!
Rank #1: Episode V: The Voting Gap. What is driving the disconnect between our legislators and working Americans? Music: "Future People" & "Don't Wanna Fight" by Alabama Shakes from the album Sound and Color
Rank #2: Framing the Message with Professor George Lakoff. George Lakoff is a professor of cognitive linguistics and philosophy at the University of California at Berkeley. Now, you might be asking yourself, “what does cognitive science, linguistic science, and phenomenology have to do with working families and the economy?” Well, as it turns out, quite a bit. Professor Lakoff studies the way that human beings think about ideas, including politics, and the way that the things we hear and say affect the things we believe. Music by: Podington Bear
Rank #1: The Republican Party's Descent Into the Dark Ages. It’s hard to boil down all the ways the Trump campaign and presidency have reshaped American political norms into a single conceptual frame.But in his new, best-selling book Devil’s Bargain: Steve Bannon, Donald Trump, and The Storming of the Presidency, Businessweek’s Joshua Green has done just that. He joined New Republic Senior Editor Brian Beutler in studio to discuss the duo's impact on politics, and whether there’s any going back to how things were before.
Rank #2: The Republicans' Obamacare 'Waterloo' Moment Has Arrived. Trumpcare is dead! At least for now. Senate Republicans lack sufficient support to repeal and replace Obamacare, or do anything to the health care system on a purely partisan basis. So what happens next? Will Republicans sabotage Obamacare for revenge? Will they feel compelled to stabilize the health care system? And how will congressional Republicans’ passivity toward Trump change now that their legislative agenda is in freefall. Daily Beast politics editor Sam Stein joined New Republic Senior Editor Brian Beutler in studio to discuss.
Rank #1: 65: White Men are Canceled Effective Immediately. Devon and Sarah discuss the Trump administration's obsession with controlling women and the links between free or low-cost birth control and women in poverty. They also name the Dickwad of the Week. Thank you to our sponsors for this week:Sun Basket - http://sunbasket.com/hellbentquip - http://getquip.com/hellbent WordPress.com - http://wordpress.com/hellbent

Plus, Oscar weirdness & LA LA LAND trutherism AKA "I Happen To Have Barry Jenkins Right Here" AKA "Mongolian Dreadlocks" AKA "Ginger Is The Color Of Matt Damon's Hair."
Rank #2: It Unfollows. Molly and Alex are joined by Andrew Ti of Yo is this Racist to discuss the horror film It Follows and the HBO show The Young Pope.
Rank #1: Emma Watson and the Half-Paid Taxes & Keeping Up With Blac Chyna. It's time to ring up 'Speed Dial with Ira and Doreen' again, MTV's bi-coastal podcast that tackles music, pop culture, sex and race. This week: Ira Madison III and Doreen St. Félix talk about Bell Hooks' favorite feminist Emma Watson and her secret offshore bank accounts. Also ahead, Rihanna's cinematic and afrofuturistic Anti Tour, Blac Chyna's feud with the Kardashians, and how Madonna scammed her way into the Prince tribute at the Billboard Music Awards.
Rank #2: This Some Bull***t. It happened. Last week, a nightmare took hold on all our realities, and will maintain its grip for at least four years. After taking a week to regroup, Ira and Doreen are back. First, they discuss some of the white liberal and conservative fantasies that have been bubbling under the surface for years. In the interest of being proactive, your Speeddial hosts also offer some reading and viewing suggestions to help you prepare for survival, from black creators like James Baldwin, bell hooks, and Ava DuVernay. Next, Ira and Doreen lighten things up with conversations on the birth of our lord and savior, Dream Kardashian, and the uncomfortable comedy of Leslie Jones. Rounding this episode out is two feedback questions from our listeners.
Rank #1: THE DARKEST TIMELINE. We weren’t prepared for this episode. We mean that in every way. We did not expect this outcome. We did not mentally prepare ourselves. We had no plan for this. Like a lot of people (we’re guessing most of you), we’ve been dealing with the emotional fallout and confusion that comes with this election result. Without any script or any plan, we decided to record our raw reactions 36 hours after the event. There’s no cold open, no special guest, no bleeping of swear words--just two people trying to process. Dan tells a story about visiting a local library. Maureen talks about running headfirst into chaos. Mostly, we wanted to make something to make people feel less alone. We talk about building and about taking the time to process before making decisions about what’s next. For sure, the rawest episode of Says Who ever but maybe the one we’d most like people to hear. Stay together. Reach out. Do what you need to right now. Your Intrepid Hosts: Maureen Johnson and Dan Sinker Our awesome theme is courtesy of Ted Leo. Says Who's Logo was made by the one and only Darth
Rank #2: COPETOBER!. Okay. So. Even by 2017 standards, the last two weeks have been a bit much. So Dan and Maureen are stepping back and devoting an entire episode to COPING and YOUR QUESTIONS. First, Dan and Maureen take a quick trip to Puerto Rico with the President. Maureen talks about the potato chip van. Dan remembers the World's Finest chocolate bar. You ask: how do you get things done in 2017? How do you cope with right-wing co-workers? Should there be more debates? Is the Disney Dining Pass worth it? And is there an official Says Who cocktail? We get to it all. The fall is upon us, Says Whovians. We have to take care of each other. Pull up a pumpkin. It's Says Who time! SHOW NOTES: Pub for PR! Bid on an hour of BAD LIFE COACHING from Maureen! Get yourself a $30 word processor! To make Dan's Grey Stuff pie, simply follow this recipe for The Grey Stuff, but scoop it into an oreo cookie pie crust. Try the grey stuff, It's DELICIOUS.

Rank #1: 7: Al Sharpton. The Reverend Al Sharpton, whose career was shaped by the same New York tabloid media that created Donald Trump, said Trump called him soon after the election to praise his analysis on MSNBC of Trump's New York roots. He also said Trump's notoriously thin skin is the result of the fact that he has no cause beyond his own brand. "I don't mind getting the crap beaten out of me if I can turn around and say to Abner Louima, “those cops went to jail for forty years.” And we did," he said on NewsFeed. "So if you're only goal is you — yeah, we all have an ego, yeah we like the spreads in Vanity Fair. But that's not the goal. That's the means to the end. To him, that is the end. So if you're attacking him, you're attacking his goal." Sharpton also talked about another longtime acquaintance on the right, the late Fox News chief Roger Ailes. "I'd see Roger Ailes and we'd talk, and the funniest thing, he would always tell me, 'You know,' and he showed me a picture he took with Malcolm X back in the day, as a reporter. And I used to tease him, I said, 'So you're going to show me the Malcolm X picture. Why don't you show me the Nixon picture?' I said, 'I think you might've interviewed Malcolm. You worked and helped create Nixon.'" And he blamed Hillary Clinton's defeat not on her failure to bring in white voters, but on her lack of effort in rallying black ones. "You lost Michigan, by what, 15,000, 20,000 votes? You could've got that if you mobilized two housing projects or three churches," he said. "You didn't identify with those in identity politics, that's why you had the lowest turnout you had around blacks in a long time."
Rank #2: 6: David Folkenflik on Roger Ailes. When Roger Ailes' wife Elizabeth sent a statement on her husband's death to The Drudge Report instead of Fox News it was, according to NPR Media Correspondent David Folkenflik, "the final act of Roger Ailes' revenge" against the network he created. In an interview for the podcast NewsFeed with @BuzzFeedBen, BuzzFeed editor-in-chief Ben Smith talks with Folkenflik about Ailes' contentious relationship with the Murdochs and the way he wielded — and abused — his power as the head of Fox News. "It was a paranoid cult culture, it was a control culture, we knew that it was a punitive culture," said Folkenflik. In the interview, Folkenflik also talks about the allegations of sexual abuse that got Ailes kicked out of Fox News and how the network is navigating Trump's presidency without him. "The people who are in that [morning] meeting basically have a triptych, incense, candles, a hologram machine, designed to conjure up the spirit of Roger Ailes and figure out what the hell would he do if he was handed these cards to play," he said. David Folkenflik is the author of Murdoch's World: The Last of the Old Media Empires.

Rank #1: This Is Alexis Neiers Calling. In 2010, Alexis Haines (formerly Alexis Neiers) made reality TV history when she, facing prison time for her involvement in the infamous bling ring, screamed and sobbed on a reporter’s voicemail, saying the now iconic line, “Nancy Jo? This is Alexis Neiers calling.” Since her time on Pretty Wild, Alexis has opened up about the serious drug addiction that controlled her life for her tween and teen years and now seven years sober, she is a certified addiction counselor and doula.

Rank #2: What If You Fart in A Quiet Place?. With Jordan Peele’s Oscar win for “Get Out” and John Krasinski’s directorial breakout “A Quiet Place,” horror films have become in demand for A list talent. What does that mean for the genre? What does it mean for the press cycle? What makes a good horror film good and a bad horror film bad, and are bad scary movies actually the BEST scary movies? Joining us for the discussion is writer, editor, and lifelong horror fan, Corban Goble (Pitchfork, the Players Tribute, Inverse).Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
Rank #1: Week 38: The National Dolt. Trump fails a basic test on how the economy works, and we're all looking forward to him failing an IQ test too. He threatens to pull out of Puerto Rico and gives away the game on Pence's NFL stunt.

Rank #2: Anthony Weiner Relives His Run For Mayor Of New York City. When Anthony Weiner resigned from Congress in 2011, his career in politics appeared over, crushed by a scandal in which he sent lurid tweets and texts. But less than two years later, Weiner surprised many by launching a run for mayor of New York City. It was a tumultuous ride. Weiner briefly led the polls before scandal struck yet again. In the latest Candidate Confessional, he relives the race, and all its emotional highs and lows. For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy
