Welcome mama bears and daddy bears to this the 216th edition of the Harvard Lunch Club political podcast – the Kraft Bears edition of the show – with your unbearable hosts, east coast radio guy Todd Feinburg and west coast AI guy Mike Stopa. We come to you every week with the pithy, the provocative and the funny stories that, well, that make you thirst for more.
This week, we discuss Robert Kraft, New England Patriots owner, winner of an unprecedented six Super Bowl Titles and (loyal?) patron of heretofore thriving establishments such as the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, Florida. As you surely know, Bob was caught with his hand, er, in the fortune cookie jar and rumor has it that there is videotape. Mr. Kraft says no. We shall see. The house of ill repute in question is more than just a whore house, however, and is a wing of a sex trafficking network.
- Should it matter to Kraft and his sentence and his future reputation that the prostitutes he patronized were (assuming they were) effectively sex slaves? and
- Should Kraft be made to serve 100 hours of community service (as first offenders typically do) just like anyone else as a penalty?
Then, we’re all about the bears…the sun bears, also known (adorably) as the honey bears! These little southeast asian critters have, according to world renowned scientists, exhibited the ability to mimic the facial expressions of their bear-buddies. Is that remarkable? We will discuss.
We have (you guessed, right?) our shower thoughts and our hidden gem – one of Todd’s favorite songs from one of his favorite groups – is Give a Damn, by Spanky and Our Gang. Enjoy!
