Episode 026 - Gun Hysteria and Our Response to Knee-Jerk Reactions
2 days ago
In this episode, the Dynamically Drunken Duo lay aside the topic they were originally going to record (an Oxford-style debate on socialism in professional sports) in favor of addressing gun hysteria in the wake of the Florida high school shooting. Brett tosses aside many gun myths with well-researched facts, and Rob debunks politicians' and the media's definition of an assault weapon with the true meaning of the term. Sit back, relax, have a drink if you can, and listen to Brett and Rob slay some gun myth dragons.

Rob apologizes for his audio. He was experimenting with reflective sound reduction via moving blankets whilst recording and he got his microphone too near the blankets. That's why he sounds like he's trapped in a box. He'll ensure that it is better next time or Brett will make him kiss a picture of Abraham Lincoln. Blech!
