TSP 80: The Last Show of the Old World

Chad and Amanda get together on the Saturday night before Election Day 2016. We have a few drinks and speculate on what may and may not happen in the days after the election. We do share a couple of stories too. There was a technical issue that happens at about 22:50 in the track that we address as well.

TSP 76: Are We Hopeless?

Tiny and Chad speak of a few news stories but also discuss an article saying that atheism is hopeless and meaningless. Of course we disagree with the author.

TSP 75: Has no Witty Title

Chad and Amanda discuss a variety of topics. Just listen and enjoy. It's Also Talk like a Pirate Day, which we pretty quickly forget about.

* For some reason there is an odd sound to the recording that I could not quite get removed. I apologize if it bugs you as much as it bugs me.
