Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club podcast for July 25, 2017 it’s the Smart Girl Goes to Harvard edition of the podcast with our special (smart) guest CO-HOST (first time ever!) Teri Christoph of Smart Girl Politics Podcast fame.

It’s kind of like a podcast version of a junior high school dance. We’re all a little bit clumsy and awkward, but the (political) hormones are thick in the air! We had a great time. As for Teri maybe she didn’t, like, listen to our show before agreeing to join us. But it all turns out for the best in the end.

We talk about whether the Trump Administration has now and forever gone over to Democrat Party control with the Russian battle being fought with the tenacity of Stalingrad. Can they keep sandbaggin forever? Does the whole perpetual scandal/outrage have any real effect on (a) the process of policy in D.C. and (b) the perspective on the Trump Administration in the heartland? We will discuss.

Then, we will discuss subscription boxes. Is anyone out there trying to piece together in their mind what a “subscription box” might be, as I was when I first heard the term? For the most part I don’t regret being on the outside of the culture looking in. But I’d rather at least be looking in from someplace closer than, oh, Andromeda. But Teri will fill us in on subscription boxes (I actually first learned about them from her recent podcast on the issue) and the, OMG, youtube videos of people opening subscription boxes and showing us what they like and don’t like. For us here at HLC it is a bit of a gender bender. But now we’re sold.

We will have three (count ’em, three) shower thoughts and Teri has graciously chosen this week’s hidden gem from the Beatles: Rain.

    It’s good to know that there will always be at least one guy who’s on the same page as I am.

    Harvard Lunch Club and Smart Girl Politics are two of my favorite podcasts here. Other than Victor Davis Hanson and maybe Andrew Klavan everyone else seems to be stuck in the “I Hate/Am Very Concerned about Trump” mode.

    Pointing out criticisms of Trump (especially from a conservative view) is okay sometimes, but don’t we get enough of that every second of the day from … I don’t know — EVERYWHERE ELSE?!!

    Try nearly anything once. Pretty weird Jules and Jim dynamic. T levels hit bottom when Mike apologized for the “guy thing” aspect of the skydiving outing. T levels of the show that is. T levels of the hosts were holding up just fine.

    Which one of us was Jules and which one Jim?

    Honestly, for me you’re still the Frog and Toad of Trump supporters. No confusion about roles there.

    I always listen to you guys and to Smart Girls so couldn’t miss this. Teri is too cheery for your usual drole dynamic (which I like) . Perhaps that has something to do with the photo pick.

    The story of the brother and underwear at camp reminded me of my days as a camp counselor in the mid-to-late 1970’s. We counselors (I’m a guy) were instructed to remind our charges to change their underwear, because it truly wouldn’t occur to the boys to do so. We also worked hard to ensure they got in the lake approximately daily to try to keep grime build-up from getting too severe (since getting some of the boys to a shower was often hopeless).
