Eric Weinstein (right) talking with Bret Easton Ellis (left) on episode 7 of The Portal podcast

Eric sits down with Bret Easton Ellis; the two Gen X’ers graduated from rival high schools in a disaffected 1982 Los Angeles that inspired Ellis’ first novel “Less Than Zero”. In this conversation, they reflect on LA, Generation X, and the different notions of childhood held by Gen X and Millennials. They then discuss Bret's anti-anti-Trump position and Eric's anti-anti-anti-Trump position having both lost patience with the pro and anti-Trump views found in the Republican and Democratic party positions.
