Ep. 91: Shooting Apathy, Reality Apathy, and Steve Bannon Apathy

This episode, we're talking through some news from the past month that we didn't get to in our regularly scheduled programming. At the top of the episode, we discuss the school shooting in Parkland, Florida. We also discuss Elon Musk shooting cars into space, the fact that we are doomed on this planet, an exciting new "radical markets"-centric form of slavery proposed by some ghouls in Politico, the evil MIT robot dog, and finally--something we can all relate to--REALITY APATHY.
