The week after Christmas is the interregnum where we attempt to resume a more moderate level of eating and drinking before the football-anchored binge of New Year’s Eve, and so instead of one three-whisky podcast, Lucretia and I decided—for this week only—to do a short, daily single-shot whiskycast, focusing on just one topic for just 20 minutes or so. So you can binge-listen, even if you can’t binge-drink. We try to be equally intoxicating.

Today’s episode takes up an academic question raised by a listener about a stray comment of Steve’s about how the twain shall never meet between philosophy and political philosophy.

Tomorrow we’ll take up the subject of election integrity, as there’s a fair bit of recent news on this front. We haven’t planned much beyond tomorrow, so we welcome reader suggestions for topics (also whisky). Just drop in your questions or comments in the comment thread below. And go light on the whisky until Friday!

    A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, didn’t the Jedi use that same series of mate-selection equations to measure a padawan’s potential to harness The Force?

    What’s the outro music? It sounds Karn Evil 9-ish.

    Let’s Go Brandon!

    Good call! Ir’s Gentle Giant! Meant to annoy Lucretia above all.  It’s going to be a long week.

    That was pretty awesome.

    I generally don’t touch the hardcore analytic stuff myself.

    Steve’s idea, not mine.  Too intellectually pretentious for my taste!

    Is it intellectually pretentious to critique the intellectually pretentious?

    It better be, or I’m out of business! (At least according to Lucretia.)
