After extensive Special Days, we talk about what we’ve been up to since our last podcast—including Arthur’s imposed “radio silence”. Jason, who has a cold, shares two stories. In fact, we spend most of the first half of the podcast just catching up.
When we get to politics and such, we begin with talking about the US military action in Libya. The US so often ends up backing despots in pursuit of its goals and objectives. Jason asks, what do you do? Arthur says that the US dependence of foreign oil dictates its foreign policy in support of despots. We both think the number one security issue facing the world is dependence on Middle Eastern oil. This leads to a discussion about some small ways forward.
