SIO233: Welp…. Joe Biden.

It’s a solo show! We’ve got a couple Tuesdays’ worth of primary results to discuss, and they aren’t good for Bernie Sanders. So why is Bernie doing so much worse than in 2016? According to Amanda Marcotte and others, it’s maybe due to sexism. I discuss that and other responses to it. I also talk about some mindset changes I’ve been having, spurred by how awful Twitter has been in this primary and also by the book Politics is for Power, that really has opened my eyes to how many ways politics is merely a hobby and why that’s not good.

SIO230: Blue No Matter Whomberg?

We had ourselves another debate and it was intense, and poorly moderated. Jamie and I break it down, and also go into the question that seemed a lot more relevant last week: would we vote for Bloomberg if he’s the candidate to face Trump in the general? Find out!

SIO229: Means Testing, #metoo, and Bernie Bros

It’s time for listener questions! It’s been far too long so some of these are older, but they’re very worthwhile to discuss still. First up, why do we prefer means testing for Yang’s UBI but not free tuition to public universities? Then, was there no evidence that Dr. Ford ever met Kavanaugh? Should Franken be able to make a comeback? Why do daycare workers make so little? (insert heated debate about Bernie supporters…) Then finally, some questions about inner monologue!

SIO228: Iowa, The Debate, and New Hampshire

Well we took a week off of politics and a WHOLE bunch of politics happened, so we need to do some catch-up!

***Jamie had some severe audio problems. Due to a family trip, I don’t have the ability to re-record so I figured it was better to release than not have an episode this week. Apologies for the quality issues.

SIO227: Do You Have an Internal Monologue?

… because one of your beloved hosts of SIO does not! Needless to say, this was a mind blowing realization to that person. We talk about the extraordinary differences in human internal experience, and some of the current science and philosophy on the topic. This was really one of my favorite episodes in SIO history!
