On this week's episode, the guys lead off with a discussion on mass data collection! Who owns your data? Does Google or Facebook own it? Do they own their own platforms?

Episode 13: Here Comes Inflation
This week, the guys start with a discussion about the CPI numbers from January.

Next, they talk about the Parkland shooting and some specific policies that could be implemented that could contribute to a safer society WITHOUT a mass ban on assault rifles.

Episode 11: The Government Shutdown is Our Fault
Josh is solo again for this episode, and begins by talking about the migrant crisis in Sweden. It is literally tearing the country pushing it apart and pushing it towards the brink of civil war. Next, the big topic this week is the government shutdown! Josh has an interesting take on it (see the title) but it's a great opportunity to examine our beliefs and what kind of government we want to live under.

10 Minutes of History: The Internment of Japanese Americans
This week's 10 Minutes of History is about the internment of Japanese Americans following Pearl Harbor during WWII. This story often gets lost in the talk of WWII because of the gravity of other events, but I believe that it is worth telling and reminding everyone of the events that occured. It is not impossible that something similar could happen today, and for that reason we must keep this story alive.

10 Minutes of History: The Great Recession
This week's 10 Minutes of History is about the Great Recession. This has come up a lot in our show, and I thought it would be a good idea to give you guys a short overview of what actually happened in the recession. This one is more like 20 Minutes of History, but who's counting anyway?
62 minutes | Dec 6, 2017
