Season 2, Episode 12 - A Joke About Orphanages

For this very special episode of Thinkery, Brian will take a very slightly less half-assed approach to the show notes! 

HOW CAN THIS BE, you ask? IT BE, CAN!

So what got discussed this week, in this very slightly late episode? LOTS, probably!

  • If everyone else exploded, could Schwarzenegger have been made President?
  • How small is our audience? 
  • Paul was quoted on cnn.com!
  • Is Bustle.com crazy reputable? YOU KNOW IT!
  • Were the DNC Primaries rigged? Are the leaked emails a smoking gun?
  • Spoiler: NO, THEY WEREN'T.
  • First-world kids these days don't know what shitty world leaders are like.
  • Should you vote your conscience, or should you be pragmatic?
  • Related: being an adult means compromising sometimes!
  • Jerks!
  • How bad would President Trump be?
  • OH MAN.
  • Holy Sweet Lord, Obama's DNC speech was inspiring.
  • Orphanages, zing!
