Fear and Loathing in the West (Episode 3)

Fear and Loathing in the West (Episode 3)

In which Matt and Robert followup on the controversy surrounding the Iranian nuclear deal, examine the new APUSH standards which stress "American exceptionalism," reexamine the possibility of a First Lady on money, and discuss how the most important people in history are crazy inventors like the Wright Brothers. Finally, Robert spends probably too much time dissecting a poorly written article about the supposed increase in xenophobia in Germany.
