2PP122 – 31 January 2017

2PP_Album_art 1400x1400Two episodes in one month, posted around 24 hours after recording, and this episode is a reasonable length—where are the real Arthur and Jason?!

Just kidding—it really is us back so soon. We’re impressed by the level of protests. Is there something else going on, though? Today’s is a wide-ranging discussion eventually leading to talk about reforming the Electoral College and making it easier to vote, not harder. We even have comments! Jason closes out this episode with a non-political anecdote.

Watch out for the first 2Political Lite, coming soon to this podcast feed! (subscribers to the podcast will get them automatically)

Correction: Arthur misspoke: He took Chuck Schumer to task for promoting a “Top-Two Primary”, not for advocating awarding Electoral Votes by Congressional District. Coincidentally, however, the better solution to both would be the Alternative Vote.

Everyone’s welcome to leave a comment—agree or disagree!

    I really enjoyed Episode 122. To quote Bob Cesca, the last 3 weeks have been like sitting in front of a tennis ball machine with all of the crap flying at us from Trump’s administration. Sanity and being presidential flew away from Washington on January 2oth with Barrack and Michelle Obama.
