Our (not very timely) thoughts about the US elections, including both our pre-election speculation as well as our post-election musings. Don’t worry, there won’t be another episode like this for years to come.
Politics, much like religion, is an unusually divisive issue for many people. To be clear, the content of this episode is based on our personal experiences and backgrounds, so please do not regard this episode as prescriptive in any way.
The first part of the episode was recorded one day before voting day, and we spoke about some of the issues, candidates, and what we thought might happen. The second part was after the elections and we focused on some of the interesting outcomes.
- Paul Broun, ran unopposed as House Rep in Georgia: “Lies straight from the pit of hell”
- The Economist endorsement of Obama
- Possibly addictive substances to consume: marijuana, fast food
- Did America elect its first woman president?
