Kind of shows that the problem with attention is not purely an artifact of social media--that the lion's share of responses at academic conferences has always gone to the person who is both notably wrong or out-of-step with other experts and who refuses to give ground much despite being criticized.

Yes, JJM may not be worth attention anymore.

But here’s a 2 hr podcast about him with Dan Nexon. It meanders, but they get at deeper issues - like what is a scholar’s responsibility in public facing work. And they’re troubled by the substance. Highly recommended for a long car ride.
