We Know What We’re Getting Into

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club political podcast for October 24, 2017 it’s the We Know What We’re Getting Into edition of the podcast with your hosts, Hartford CT radio prince Todd Feinburg and nanophysics prince Mike Stopa. This week our special guest is Victor Davis Hanson!

We will discuss Victor’s new book: The Second World Wars: How the First Global Conflict Was Fought and Won. And we’ll also talk about presidential deportment in bereavement phone calls and the status of the NeverTrump movement…oops…maybe that’s un-PC!!!

Our shower thoughts as always and this week, finally, as a hidden gem, my favorite group, probably of all time, The Bad Plus and their cover of Comfortably Numb. Enjoy!

    You know it is very possible to believe that Trump totally bungled the phone call AND that Rep. Wilson is a showboating, pathetic democrat.

    Yes, but hardly required by events. In this case, the morally superior default goes to the Prez.

    Fascinates? Do explain, Stopa’s ego needs the boost.

    Morally superior? Trump? I guess maybe more so than Wilson, but that’s splitting hairs. Even in this case.

    I figure if they were kids, Feinburg would be the cool guy having to talk people out of wanting to fight Stopa after Stopa inserts himself into a conversation with pretty girls, rambles on far too long, and stuck his foot in his mouth even though he probably meant no harm :).

    love you both
