Today, the guys start off by discussing the recently departed Norm Macdonald (1:00). They talk about his unique comic voice and the tremendous respect Ali and other comics had for him. Then, since both albums were released 30 years ago this month, the guys debate which album is better: Nirvana’s Nevermind’ or Pearl Jam’s ‘Ten (8:09)’. During their wide-ranging conversation, they reference the origins of the name “Smell’s Like Teen Spirit”, the recent lawsuit filed regarding the photo on the cover of ‘Nevermind’, Columbia house records, Andrew Wood and Temple of the Dog and Ali’s go-to karaoke song. Then Ali asks Asif about cognitive bias in medicine and how they can lead to diagnostic errors (30:48). Asif then discusses how the concepts around cognitive bias can lead us to better understand vaccine hesitancy (42:48).
