In this episode, The Jacksway Collective read Hilary Putnam's paper Brains in a Vat and experience a collective hallucination. Well, not exactly. They do, however, discuss epistemology and the implications of what would happen if it were revealed tomorrow we were all just brains in a vat. The gang also dives into their most embarassing author they have on thier shelves and how to deal with social interactions with clammy hands.

Ah, the email. We all love a good email, don't we? The Jacksway Collective sure does. So go ahead. Start typing and send us an email at jackswaycollective@gmail.com. We'd love to hear your thoughts on the paper. Or if email isn't your style let us know what you think of the show by leaving a review on iTunes.
