This episode features a clip from HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher where Bill chastises liberals who talk about being unwilling to support the lesser of two liberal candidates because one isn't sufficiently pure. As a life-long Bernie supporter who loves Ralph Nader, I can relate to both sides, but I 100% agree with Bill here. Hillary's going to be just fine if enough people don't let perfect be the enemy of the good.
This episode features a clip from WNYC's The Brian Lehrer Show with a montage of Donald Trump and Marco Rubio making fun of one another in very grown-up, presidential ways. And also a clip from HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher where Bill discusses the very mature state of the GOP presidential primary.
This episode features an extended clip of Sam Harris' Waking Up podcast where he discusses Meat Without Misery with Uma Valeti, cardiologist and CEO of Memphis Meats. I don't normally put such long clips on, but this is something I'm particularly interested in, and I couldn't get it any shorter. Also, while the clip is long it is nevertheless significantly edited down. So if you're interested, listen to the whole interview.
This is the last episode of Season 12 (that is, for the year of 2015). I'll be taking some time off at the start of the new year, and come back with new episodes in season 13, probably ramping back up in February 2016.
In case you missed it, listen to the special episode from 2007 about how Kelli and I met at a TMBG concert.
