In a special episode recorded from his parents’ basement, Jack invites R Street Fellow, “senator,” and sloth enthusiast Shoshana Weissman to discuss why she loves sloths, why she’s passionate about occupational license reform, and why SpongeBob is so great.

    Shoshana is a delight, and also totally correct about occupational licensing.  I have made the point, within my own profession of architecture, that the ONLY legitimate aspects that should be subject to exam are those pertaining to health and safety (understanding of the fire performance of materials and emergency egress provisions, for example).  Yet the exam still includes mostly subjects that don’t relate at all to those key aspects.  Oh well…

    Keep up the great work, Ms. Weissmann!
