Ken and Mike return with a spirited back-and-forth about North Carolina’s bathroom bill, a bit about Bernie, and a diatribe about Trump and the justice system. You know, the usual.

Ken refers to the excellent Dana Gould Hour podcast episode Left & Right, and this piece by Anna Garvey defining the Oregon Trail Generation.

And for those of you who fell asleep during U.S. History 1865-1945, here’s a refresher on the Mugwumps.

Episode 9: For What It’s Worth

Kids!

We’re back! Ken and Mike discuss the state of the race, make several archaic references to songs from their youth, and make broad sweeping generalizations about “these kids today”.

The essay Ken referred to in today’s episode was originally published in Harper’s, and is called “On The Uses Of A Liberal Education” by Mark Edmundson.
