V for Vulnerable – Ep. 107 - None Sense
"Novotna produced one of the defining sporting moments of the 1990s when she stumbled in sight of victory against Steffi Graf, and then dampened the Duchess of Kent’s shoulder with her tears."

Enough – Ep. 1.5 - None Sense
This episode was inspired by an article I read about the race to develop artificial intelligence. It reminded me of a story that I heard about Jospeh Heller, which got me thinking about the concept of enough. References Tech Giants Are Paying Huge Salaries for Scarce A.I. Talent Vonnegut on Heller on Enough 1,200 Pairs of Shoes A $248,000 Tree House 30,000,000 to 8,000 as peanuts are served today 4,000,000 to 0 by accident 0 to 4,000 600 times more powerful than paper clips to end the...
Hamilton’s Warning – Ep. 1.4 - None Sense
In this episode, I explain why I believe that packing the courts with conservative jurists, as Trump and McConnell plan to do, will cause us to lose our rights.

The Illusion of Institutions - None Sense
In this second episode of None Sense, I respond to the following statement by Michelle Rosenberg: It’s a source of constant astonishment to me that the country has handed over the means to destroy civilization on this planet to an unhinged lunatic who lost the popular vote and was installed with the aid of a hostile foreign power. It’s such an epic institutional failure that it calls everything we thought we knew about this country’s stability into question. What's explained at length in...
Welcome to None Sense! – Ep. 0 - None Sense
Hi! In this inaugural episode, I introduce myself and explain what I'm doing with this podcast. To summarize, I'm a non-religious liberal who loves America. Or the idea of it, anyway. I explain more in the show, so give it a listen. Welcome! TRANSCRIPT Hi, I'm Jaime Escuder and welcome to this inaugural episode of None Sense. What is a "none"? (I'm actually not that kind of none that you're thinking about. Quite the opposite.) None, N-O-N-E, is someone who is secular or unaffiliated with...
