About this Episode

The Jacksway Collective

Tolstoy is back in the Jacksway Collective's quest to find the story with the most possible suffering a human being can endure. Sarah, Brendan, Oliver, and Jhana dig into "God Sees the Truth, But Waits." During the episode they talk about holding on to one's faith and question whether or not truth ought to be the most fundamental virtue of our human experience.

The gang also reads their VERY FIRST LISTENER EMAIL. Ted from Vancouver asks us to clarify our views on blame, what it means to blame someone, and whether "brain states" are emancipatory in our evaluation of other people's deservingness of blame. Side note, Jhana wrote a longer blog response to this email below.
