This episode features clips from Air America Radio's The Rachel Maddow Show (7/31/08) where she brilliantly explains the slight of hand use by the Republican Party to conflate "America" with "American-in-Name-Only-Oil-Companies-with-Banks-in-Cayman-Islands" to justify their policy positions on domestic and foreign matters.

This episode features a clip from CNN's typically worthless Wolf Blitzer interviewing John McCain shill Gov. Mark Sanford who, despite claiming they do often, can't think of an example of how McCain differs from Bush on economic policy, only to inadvertently give an example of how they are the same (watch the clip here). It also features clips from a fine interview with one of my favorite authors, Michael Pollan, being interviewed by environmental blog e360 (listen to the whole interview here).

This episode features clips the excellent NY Times Magazine column The Ethicist with Randy Cohen (subscribe). I selected the first one because I too telecommute and have pondered the question, tho not ever gone that route. I just liked the second clip, but have no horse in that race, so to speak.

This episode features a brief clip of Patton Oswalt's "At Midnight I will Kill George Lucas with a Shovel" from his album Werewolves and Lollipops (iTunes) where he talks about wanting to prevent the creation of the Star Wars prequels, which seems appropriate given the recent release of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Which despite having a lot of problems with, I still managed to like a little.
