CONTEXT: Stephen Wolfram and Nassim Nicholas Taleb in Conversation

Here are two brilliant and original thinkers, covering topics ranging from fat tails in statistics, theory vs. experience, evidence-based medicine, cryptocurrencies, intuition and non-Gaussian distributions, survival and absorbing barriers, risk-taking and precaution, the difference between economics and finance, and much more. The conversation is in two parts, totalling more than three and a half hours, with questions from participants in the 2021 Wolfram Summer School. I found it more than worth the investment of time.
