Ep. 86: The Very NEAR Future (Pondering 2018)

We have survived the no-good terrible very bad 2017. Now we have to deal with 2018 which is sure to be filled with bullshit as well. This week we're reviewing 2017 (briefly) and taking a long look at the predictions for 2018 in the realms of both policy and tech. We also clarify our perspective on Jeff Sessions--we feel like he hates ALL people of color, not just black folks.

BONUS: Casey's concise, spot-on Ronald Reagan impression.
