In this episode, we start off by freshening our memories to some very relevant words that Barack Obama spoke, in 2006, concerning the nomination process for Supreme Court Justices. We take that conversation right into reading of the latest article, written by Alex Plitsas, on Antonin Scalia.
With Alex Plitsas on the phone, we are able to talk a little bit about Antonin Scalia's life, the Judicial process in the United States, and the murky details surrounding Scalia's death.
In the second half, Max Ancaporado calls in to talk a little aliens, and a little bit about releasing the Kraken. We end with the shocking study which shows that—get this—government subsidizing of college education actually causes tuition to go up! *gasp* Who woulda thunk it?
