SIO157: Sustainable Agriculture, with Dr. Sarah Taber

What does a parking lot layout tell you about food safety? Why are sprouts so damn unhygienic? And more seriously, who should shoulder the burden for making our food more sustainable? Dr. Sarah Taber gives us her expertise on these questions and many more! (teaser alert: she also might have a pretty controversial view on farmers markets…)

Leave Thomas a voicemail! (916) 750-4746, remember short and to the point!

SIO155: Thoughts On McCain and Louis CK; Listener Voicemail

First I’ve got some monologuing to do on John McCain and speaking ill of the dead, and Louis CK apparently deciding he can just come back now. After recording this, I saw a great article by Roxane Gay that says a lot of what I said but also more and better, so check this out as well.

After that, it’s listener voicemail time! Got a lot of passionate reaction to my dire political predictions about 2022 and beyond.

Here are some links for points I made: Obama’s Income as President; Larry Summers Withdraws from Fed Job; Awesome 538 Trump Rating Tool

SIO153: Blame the Green Party? Plus – An Interview with Steve Hill

Today’s episode starts off with a bit of monologuing. I heard what I think are some bad arguments around the recent election results, so I wanted to put some thoughts out there. After that, I have a brief interview with Steve Hill! Steve will be the emcee of California Freethought Day this year. He is a comedian, atheist, satanist, activist, and more! We talk about his background, his run for the CA state senate, why he’s boycotting the NFL, and about a tragedy that struck his family this year.
