Jay and Mona are very enthusiastic Betsy DeVos fans, but they are skeptical, to say the least, about the federal department she will now head.

They also cover the president’s immigration order (pro and con), Garry Kasparov and the right, France’s election and Wikileaks, conservative versus liberal isolationism, Roberta McCain, Ben Sasse, and a hummingbird egg.

The podcast closes with an autumnal piano performance from the late Liberace. Jay approves, which is saying something.

    How do tweets from people I don’t follow show up in my feed?

    Twitter frequently shows you “things you might like”, which are popular tweets from people similar to the people you follow.

    The quote about caring more about your finger than an Earthquake in China was made by Adam Smith and it was more interesting and more sensible than most French philosophers.
