In this episode they discuss health care, inclusive of Obamacare and the limited amount they know about it, and Canadian health care and how oddly it doesn’t overcharge people or let them die if they can’t pay.

June thirtieth twenty thirteen

Is it possible to think too much?

Podcast: episode 17 – Speaking Up vs. Foot In Mouth

 

June 9, 2013, y’all.

Sometimes we keep silent when we should speak. Sometimes we speak when we should stay silent. How do you know the difference? Most people listening to this podcast will probably agree that we should have stayed silent rather than broadcast this episode of pure drivel. But that’s what learning is all about. Listen as two sleep deprived men approaching middle age giggle away in a basement laundry room instead of getting some sleep. This is time well spent!
