Agreed that 'wiping out student loan debt' in any wide sweeping manor would be a political nightmare. What do you think about forgiving some debt on return for 2 yrs armed services duty or some other like-minded public service?

Joe Rogan has been using the 'I'm just a guy...' excuse from the time he was 'just a guy' until today where he has 11million listeners per episode. He ultimately has zero responsibility to anyone which is why I hope more artists and Podcasters put pressure on Spotify to hold him accountable. Someone's got to do it because he definitely has no interest in community health.

Some uh... interesting positions Scott's taken this week. That CNN unwarranted centrism kicking in before he starts there? I have to say, centrism for the sake of it is not better. Kara's much more thoughtful yet critical approach of the pros and cons of any position before deciding on those merits alone is a lot more "balanced" (unlike CNNs reporting). Scott's always had that forced bothsidesism to his discussions though..

a strange contrast with AT&T's challenge with media, would be Canada's Bell. after they divested Nortel stock, they went on a media shopping spree. media they still manage. Why the fuck is there not an auto caps after a period????

Andrew Yang is America's best hope for the future. The media hit pieces are SAD. Pay attention to the man not the press.

There is NO way Scott talks more than Kara, particularly if you include the times (i.e., always) Kara is talking WHILE Scott is talking. Love you, Kara, but let the air fill with just one voice now and again.
