East Meets West 298 – Serial time

Roger parties does a horrible job of promoting an awesome comic. We recall MathNet, what you watch when you’re young, do standards of violence and sexuality in entertainment go in cycles? All that and more. Is a slow recovery better than boom and bust?

East Meets West 297 – Migrate!

Why people feel powerless. Are we better off in tribes than we are now? Was Hobbes right? What would be the best way to be governed? Does one system work for everyone? What replaces nation-states? Migratory patterns of humans. What should immigration policy be like?

East Meets West 295 – Greasy sickness

Roger relates his water heater problems. We talk about the weather but it’s really interesting. Voting with your cups at 7-11. Our love/hate relationship with malls. Roger’s dietary issues.
