#thepete #podcast for 9/20/16: Why "#Skittles" represents the #worst of #America


This week on #thepetepodcast: #DonaldTrump Jr makes an ultimately nonsensical comparison between Skittles and #refugees and in the process validates America's #paranoia and #cowardice. May have to do a sequel to this ep. So much to say!

Here's that graphic I mention in the podcast this week:
Yes, because deciding to eat a piece of candy is JUST LIKE
deciding whether to accept refugees into your country.

#thepete #podcast: #science and how we #think about it (and why it needs to change)


This week on #thepete #podcast: #science is not a #religion and how we #think about it needs to reflect that.  Mostly, it doesn't.  Mostly we think religion and science are analogous and they're not.  I think I'll have to do a part 2 of this theme.  Have a listen and tell me if you think it needs a part 2.

#thepete #podcast: the #WarOnDrugs is a lie. why aren't we angry?


Yep! Apparently, the #WarOnDrugs is a lie. Why isn't this all over the news? Why aren't we angry that we've been lied to for decades? #Drugs ate not bad. They're not good either. But countless people have died for a racist, bigoted fairy tale.

#thepete #podcast: Hillary has Won NY (and the White House) (basically)



In this week's #thepete #podcast, I gripe about NY's closed primaries and how #HillaryClinton should just be crowned already. So, more #politics in this week's #thepetepodcast. Still wish #BernieSanders won NY. Oh and sorry for the abrupt ending of this week's regular edition! So much more to say so listen to the rest at patreon.thepete.com! Thanks!

#thepete #podcast: #Hillary v #Bernie v #Donald what the heck is going on?!? #politics from #thepetepodcast!


In this week's #thepete #podcast, I explore the moral weirdness of the #POTUS race that sees a #Bernie v #Donald v Hillary showdown in the #NYPrimary as a left v right v center debate. So much to go into! Listen and comment! Thanks!  Sorry this is a day late this week.  Family in town.

Here is a direct download of the 10 minute mp3 of this week's #thepete #podcast, or you can subscribe to #thepete #podcast! ;)

Got iTunes? Sure, we're all forced to! Subscribe to #thepete #podcast on iTunes!

Yep, this one went long again--so swing by patreon.thepete.com and pledge a buck (or more) to hear the rest.  It's a full 30 minutes again.  What do ya want?  I've got a lot to say!

Why listen to the full 30-minute episode of #thepete #podcast?

Simple--because you get to hear more details on why voting for Hillary is a bad idea.  It's an involved but pretty simple thing, to be honest.  Listen to find out how and why.

#thepete #podcast for March 23, 2016! This just in! We humans have caused #GlobalWarming/#ClimateChange! Not only with our burning of #FossilFuels but with our breathing.  Listen to this week's 'cast for more on this depressing (but not too surprising) news.
