In this listener mail episode, Mike and Jay tackle a bunch of questions including whether we’re spending the right amount of money on the right things for national defense, how to deal with a future in which machines are doing so many of the things people currently do, news outlets and columnists we don’t agree with but respect and recommend, why Americans pay so much for health care when American healthcare outcomes seem to lag those of other rich countries, and why we’re subsidizing the fossil fuel industry.

  1. Good show gentlemen. Any chance of getting links to all the people and places you mention in response to the question about where to go to for reasoned, centrist viewpoints to read up on? I didn’t catch all of them and specific links to them would be helpful. Thanks for the show and keep up the good work.
