Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club podcast for November 15, 2016 it’s the Primal Scream edition of the podcast with your hosts, radio host Todd Feinburg and nanophysicist Mike Stopa. After six days we are all still screaming! Some scream for Donald Trump, some scream at Donald Trump and some scream, unaccountably, for ice cream.

This week on the podcast we will talk about more fallout from the election – from the enthusiastic protests of professional troublemakers and precious snowflakes to the promises, promises of Lena Durham and fellow travelers to leave the United States (don’t let the door hit you on the way out!); from the new odd couple in the White House – of course I am talking about Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon – to the nation’s courageous mayors who are reaffirming their commitment to stand in the schoolhouse doors and prevent the enforcement of Federal Law. We’ll talk about marches by the KKK that aren’t and Mike’s plan to use the purse strings of scientific research to force universities to ensure that their janitors and gardeners are all legal U.S. residents.

We’ll have, as usual, our fascinating shower thoughts and, as a tribute to the late, great Leonard Cohen we’ll have as our hidden gem of the week one of his early greats, Bird on a Wire.

So come and scream with us!

    Leave it to Harvard people to talk about janitors with a physicist. Didn’t y’all just hear the mandate? Intellectualism is kaput.

    I’m still mid-listen, I have to return later but I have to point out that the Ann Coulter prediction of Trump’s win was not this past summer , it took place in June 2015 , 17 months before the election.

    I almost always enjoy this podcast and the perspectives offered therein. Today was the worst example of this podcast’s biggest problem, Stop interrupting and talking all over Mike Stopa! Re-listen to this and count how many times you interrupted him and stopped the flow of intelligent conversation. The banter is usually good, but this today was terrible.

    This, one hundred times over! I like you guys, but the interruptions make me want to shout, “Get on with your point already!”

    Also, I’m going to reserve judgment on whether I think Trump is a genius or not–at least a conscious genius. I don’t think he’s playing a character, it’s just him. If he instinctively does things that work, that’s a bit different than playing a role to get a predetermined result.

    You sent me to YouTube to find Bird on the Wire. I listened to early 70s version and this 2013 and love the old growly voice best.

    Very moving.

    I listened with this in mind and I agree. We will amend.
