Episode Info

Episode Info: What do Body Mass Index, the English measurement system, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average have in common? They're all living fossils, masterfully preserved in our culture for... well... no discernible reason. If you've ever heard the phrase, "That's the way we've always done it," and rolled your eyes, then this episode is for you! SPI #19 -- Outdated talks about three different things that just won't go away in spite of better options being available for each of them. Want to stand in defense of these things we called out today? Want to join in on the bashing? Email us your feedback at podcast@selfproclaimedintellectuals.com. We have a special request for you this week! If you'd like to hear our show on public radio, email into KMUW, Wichita's local NPR affiliate. Let them know you'd like to hear SPI on air!
