Richard Dawkins and Julia Sweeney Discussed Science and Politics the Day After the 2016 Election

On November 9, the day after the election, Richard Dawkins sat down with comedian Julia Sweeney for a pre-planned interview at the University of Indianapolis.

Their conversation begins at the 7:20 mark with a brief venting session about the previous night… before getting into a longer conversation about science.

I haven’t had a chance to watch the entire conversation, so if any moments stand out to you, please leave a timestamp and summary in the comments.
