Larry brings us the topic today: After AI takes over, all that will be left is human expression... or wait, will there also be POLITICS?? Crunch Dog and Larry start to unpack this together. This was recorded before Larry went to the super bowl so he's probably in worse shape now than he was when we recorded this
Joshua Avraham Shekelberg, our resident ex-antifa Jewish SJW bigot provocateur, makes a triumphant and exuberant return to the show, giving us an update on his post-Trump exodus to Toronto. We talk about Aziz Ansari, consent apps, Crime and Punishment, and the responsibility of an activist to measure the efficacy of their actions. The episode ends with Josh hitting a grand slam by explaining cultural appropriation to Larry via a lobster roll analogy.

We start this episode by trying to figure out the exact logistics of how North Korea might actually strike the east coast, i.e. where the missile would have to go. Then, we read a testimony by Professor Matt Blaze about the perils of electronic voting. That quickly degrades into a debate about compulsory voting. Uhh... enjoy? Also, we are starting a book club! Some time in March we'll be doing a three part episode...
We are back after a few weeks off to celebrate the holidays. We return to the garage to catch up with each other on what we've been thinking about. We discuss the book Project Drawdown, and Larry gets schooled on Bitcoin.

Last week we read The Cyberspace Manifesto. This week we went out and found an inhabitant of cyberspace. This person calls himself "BITS" and is a self-described Digital Libertarian. He is the CTO of a start-up and shares his his learned perspective on how to live life in a world where ALL that matters, is technology.
Don't even talk to us about #NetNeutrality unless you've read John Perry Barlow's Cyberspace Manifesto. Nobody should be regulating the internet - no government, no market. Our reading and discussion starts at 20:30
Michael Gay Fawkes comes on to talk to us about all sorts of "cool" technological shit, like how we're going to automate ourselves out of existence and the 20 shittiest percent of ourselves are going to survive the transition into the new digital world we're creating for ourselves. And we talk about birds a lot.
Politically Intoxicated is a show you should definitely check out. If we smoke weed and live in Massachusetts (we do) then they drink beers and live in Texas. Infer from that what you will. We cover all sorts of topics loosely focused around Free Speech, the consequences of, the need for it, and the responsibilities one has while practicing your right to speech.
