As Whitley puts it in the second half of the show, “I think this might be the most important interview I have ever done.”
Whitley interviews Laird Scranton on the Mystery of Skara Brae, which may sound obscure but is actually one of the world’s greatest and most important mysteries, relating directly to why we even have civilization on Earth.
In the second half of the show, while listening to Laird describe some very deep secrets of the lost past, Whitley has a blinding insight about his own role in the world and where we are going from here. It’s an amazing moment. There is no other way to describe it.
