SIO76: Debunking Scott Adams on Trump

Scott Adams is the creator of Dilbert, and he also happens to be a Trump apologist to end all Trump apologists. He thinks Trump is the greatest persuader of people that has maybe ever lived, and he thinks half the country is in a mass hysteria and cognitive dissonance for not realizing that fact. You might have heard him on Sam Harris’s podcast a while back and you might also have slammed your head into your desk a few times. In a couple recent blog posts, Scott references a list of Trump’s incredible achievements. He alleges that lefties like me won’t be able to fit this list into their worldviews and will have to pretend it doesn’t exist. Let’s see how this list holds up!

Scott Adams blog 1, 2, pipelines, 100 ways Trump is hurting women, the women’s council that is MIA, Trump’s 2 for 1 regulation thing sucks, Trump hasn’t followed through on HBCUs.

I was on the Mythicist Milwaukee Podcast discussing the conference which I’ll be appearing at this month. Check them out here.

SIO74: Interview with a Dreamer on #DACA

I once again interrupt my regularly scheduled whatever in order to bring you an interview with an undocumented immigrant, Christian. Christian is currently working under DACA and if the program is ended, he won’t be able to work anymore, short of under the table/off the books jobs. He tells us his story and what exactly DACA means for him.

SIO73: FGM in the UK, with Chantelle

I’m joined by Chantelle Boduel, who recently completed her Masters in Human Rights Law at the University of Kent in Brussels. She did her thesis on FGM in the UK, and I thought it would be very educational to have her on to speak about what she learned. See the attached Word document for her sources.

SIO72: But Didn’t Obama Pardon Terrorists?

Today I’m talking about the Arpaio pardon – how awful Arpaio is as a human, what he did that was so egregious, what he was found guilty of, and how he compares to some other historically bad pardons. Isn’t it true that Obama pardoned some people who were WAY WORSE??? I investigate. Also, some great voicemails allow me the chance to talk about my appearance on wethepeoplelive – Josh Zepps’ show – and the whitelash that resulted. Additionally, I need to correct some statistic related mistakes I made on Monday’s episode.
