Why might it be the best? Partly because of the long video format — a full hour (with a provocative final question for Steve that you need to subscribe to The Daily Wire to see), and very well produced. Partly because Shapiro has done his homework.

That is more than you can say for some scientists and journalists I’m thinking of right now.

Meanwhile, a critic, French-Canadian neuroscientist Jean-Francois Gariépy, who is claimed by some to be an alt right figure (but that’s disputed), has made his own vid, at The Public Space reviewing/attacking Shapiro’s interview with Meyer:
“Intelligent Design Continues To Be Wrong | TPS #360″ begins around 15:40.
