Lockdowns Loosen Up

The Politics of Evidence
The Dagnammit Duo™ hash out their opinions of facts - from the Reade allegations to reopening. Are our conclusions predetermined by how much we want Trump and Trumpers to lose?  Special guest @DavidGunderman makes the case that, yes, cancelling a cancerous President should be prioritized over Democrats shooting one of their own. Plus: MurderHornets™ - Aren't they the bee's torso?

How Far Is Far Enough?*
*If You're Moist From Sweating? How come the official rules of quarantine lag the need? And what will the rules be when we've gotten the "All Clear", or the "Some Clear"? R&D sort through the post-apocalyptic possibilities for 𝑤𝑜𝑟𝑘 and 𝑝𝑙𝑎𝑦. PS: Can our listener tell us what those words mean?

Don't Say Moist
OK. This was gonna be really good. But Randy - who has a *computer consulting business* - blew it. He let the recording stop RIGHT WHEN IT WAS GETTING GOOD.  *THEN*, once we re-started the recorded segment of the podcast, he misread the length of the recording and cut us off before anything good could get going.  So blame him. Also, thank him, because it's less than 20 minutes. And we say "MOIST".

Back the F*ck Up, Piglet
R&D are breaking it down so you can focus on having a breakdown: We give a quick snapshot of the coronavirus pandemic in America We discuss how much is too much when it comes to living a clean, quarantined life  Later, we move at least 6 feet away from the gloomy news by answering listener questions - It's a great way to get up-close-and-personal with Randy and Dave without getting infected.

Puppies in a Tennis Ball Factory
Dave’s been busy, so it’s his fault that we haven’t been putting out. But we’re back now, and boy do we have a LOT to say, much of it somewhat listenable. If you like jibber-jabber with a topical flair, you’ve come to the right place.  This week:  · How do you prioritize issues?  · Are assault-weapons the real "guns" problem ? What about handguns, that kill far more Americans?  · Is our national debt really anything?  and · Should a democratic nation deny entry to an ally’s elected leaders? So sit back, relax, and suffer a little bit for your country.
