Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America offer a champagne toast to the military and space heroism of John Glenn. They are surprised to see a massive jump in economic optimism since Trump’s election. They shudder as free speech is trampled in the Netherlands. And they unload on Hillary Clinton after she claims fake news is having a major impact on the nation.

    When I listen to this podcast the audio reaches time stamp 3:20 then starts over again, while continuing to advance the clock. There is a bug somewhere: please fix.

    I was in sixth grade when Sputnik went up. We learned two things from this – both in school and news etc.

    One, we really need more school hours and more of the ones we have should be math and science.

    Two, while the US was making better, lighter missiles, Russia was stuck with old technology and old, heavy missiles, so they needed more launch power. That gave them a leg up on space. Nothing to worry about. Just a bit of focus.

    No one ever said anything about maybe their system was better than ours. EVER!
