Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political podcast number 176 (gads!) it’s the Lib on Lib edition of the show with you Conservative on Conservative hosts Todd Feinburg, radio guy, and Mike Stopa, nano-artificial-intelligencist. Welcome. Yes, welcome!

This week we discuss the lovely noises and gnashing of teeth that ensues when liberals face off against other liberals. In a couple of elections in the northeast (Massachusetts and Connecticut to be exact) two Black/Latino/gay politicians and labor organizers are squaring off against the white Democrat establishment in the state. These two challengers – Ayanna Pressley against sitting congressman Mike Capuano and Eva Bermudez Simmerman against Susan Bysiewicz for CT lieutenant governor – have decided to just wander off – Wander Off! – the Democrat plantation, *They* say that the Democrats are not doing enough for Blacks and Latinos! *They* say that Blacks and Latinos owe no special allegiance to the Democrat Party.

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political podcast number 175 (isn’t there like a name for that? like the sequeplus centennial or something?) it is the Dying Anyway Podcast with your handsome and charming hosts, radio guy Todd Feinburg and nanophysicist turned AI-guy Mike Stopa. We bring you the topics that you want to hear, analyzed the way that you want them to be analyzed.

This week, John McCain is in a bad way. Everyone knows that. But he still wants to express his opinion while he is on this side of the grass. But is there any reason we need to listen to him? He’s going to die anyway, right?

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club number 174 it’s the Trump Pulls Out edition of the podcast with your ever so charming hosts, Todd Feinburg radio guy and Mike Stopa nanophysicist!

This week we discuss the demise of the Iran Deal, the near-end of the Obama legacy, and the next phase of Trumpian disruption. Does this really make any sense? What is the point here? Get Iran to stop with the terrorism? Did they or did they not stop their nuclear program already?

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club number 173 it’s the Trump Love edition of the podcast with your ever so charming hosts, Todd Feinburg radio guy and Mike Stopa nanophysicist!

Today our topics are (1) What gives with Mueller already? What gives with the media blowing up every last gasp of hope that they will finally find the smoking gun to *bring him down*??? Enough already. And (2) IF (IF, IF, IF, IF) kim gives up his nukes, will Sweden allow him into the country to collect his Nobel Peace Prize and, more importantly, what drug will be strong enough for the GOP foreign policy elite #NeverTrumpers?

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Podcast for April 25, 2018. It’s the White Social Status edition of the program, with nano-physicist Mike Stopa coming to us from his new home in California (is he shifting yet on immigration?) and Todd connecting from Connecticut, where he hosts a daily talk show on WTIC in Hartford.

Our two topics this week:

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Podcast for April 18, 2018. It’s the Illegal Sanctuary edition of the program, with Mike taking the week off to get settled into his new life as resident of the Sanctuary State, beautiful California. In place of Mike, we’re joined by the smarter and way more fascinating Jessica Vaughan, the Director of Policy at the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS.org) in Washington DC.

Our two topics are:

Welcome to the HLC podcast number 170 (gads!) its the Early Morning Raid edition, with your law and order hosts radio guy Todd Feinburg and nanophysicst come artificial intelligence bot Mike Stopa.

This week we discuss the new Chappaquiddick movie and the raid on Michael Cohen’s offices. Todd has seen the movie, Mike has not. We’re both appalled (though Mike more so) by the Mueller loose cannon.

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast number 169 (!!!) it’s the Corruption on Campus edition of the show with your hosts radio guy Todd Feinburg and nanophysicist turned artificial intelligence bot Mike Stopa. This week we are happy to invite Mark Bauerlein back to the show with us!

We will talk with Mark about topic number one, which is the Big Lie that takes place on campus regarding racial equality. UPenn Law professor Amy Wax recently remarked (among other things) that “I don’t think I’ve ever seen a black graduate student in the top quarter of the class and rarely, rarely in the top half.” Mark penned a fascinating column in the Weekly Standard about the Penn Law faculty taking up pitchforks and torches and launching a carpet bombing attack on the 65 year old professor (how’s that for a mixed metaphor?!?).

Welcome to the HLC podcast for March 27, 2018 it’s edition number 168, the Rack of the Stormy Clifford Daniels edition of the show with your hosts Todd Feinburg the radio guy and Mike Stopa the nanophysicist. This week we will talk about Stormy and also the Republican challenge to hold Congress in 2018 (is it even worth it?).

The big (and we do mean yuge) story of the weekend is the Anderson Cooper interview of Stormy Daniels for 60 Minutes. Compelling TV! Intelligent woman! Even credits to A.C. for a legitimately, er, probing interview (the jokes write themselves here). First question: did it happen or didn’t it? Inquiring minds want to know. Next question: who really cares? Well, we’re talking about it, so i guess we do.

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political podcast number 167(!!) it’s the Self-Crashing Zuckerbergs edition of the show with your buckled-in hosts, radio guy Todd Feinburg and nanophysicist soon-to-be-Californian Mike Stopa.

This week on the show we discuss the convergence of advances in electric cars, autonomous vehicles and ride hailing…i.e. the future of transportation in America…or so says Stanford University futurist and disruption maven Tony Seba in a provocative lecture. One woman was tragically killed by a self-driving car in Arizona this week. Will it derail the autonomous vehicle future? Probably only for a while.

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for March 13, 2018, number 166! it’s the YoungUns edition of the show with your YoungUns hosts radio guy Todd Feinburg and nanophysicist Mike Stopa. This week, heavens to murgatroyd he’s done it again! We discuss Donald Trump’s stunning decision to meet with Kim Jong Un of North Korea before May, following communication with South Korean diplomats who have suggested that Kim *might* be willing to surrender his nuclear weapons. It is obviously too early to tell if anything here will pan out, but the great uproar following the announcement is just what we have come to expect here in the age of Trump. Surprisingly, many of the mainstream media – including CNN – have greeted this announcement with something resembling approval…or at least hope. Just about everyone has had the common decency to wish Trump and the Administration well in his negotiations. The only vocal, unbending and completely unhinged responses that we have seen come from two of the usual suspects, namely Rachel Maddow and Jennifer Rubin. Maddow, of course, is paid to be a nutcase. Rubin is evidently paid in spite of it.

Then we will discuss the upcoming high school “walkout” protests this Wednesday (3/14). Todd is far more peeved by this than Mike is. The main question is whether the protests are being wholesale appropriated by the anti-NRA lobby or whether there is anti-NRA sentiment being folded into the protests but that they are subsidiary to a general desire to talk about the issues from all sides. This will obviously depend on where you are from. We will see.

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for March 7, 2018, it is episode number 165 (!!) the Transgender Tariffs edition of the show with your stylish and classy hosts, Todd Feinburg, radio guy and Mike Stopa, nanophysicist. This week, as globalist Gary Cohn walks out the door at the White house, we talk about…transgender rights…but then we talk about Trump and the tariffs and the ascendency of the Forgotten Men and Women.

But topic number one: Delaware debates a bill that would allow children of age as young as five to obtain protection from their parents and would give them the right to choose their gender (and their race as well). Parental fascism has got to end! Let the state intervene! If the kid wants to make the transition who are the parents to be standing in the way. How on earth did this idea ever get to the point of even being a policy that is up for debate? Crikey!

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for February 27, 2018, number 164! It’s the Double Trump edition of the how with your humble hosts, radio guy Todd Feinburg and nanophysicist Mike Stopa. Today, Donald Trump announced at last what we’ve all been waiting for – that he is running for re-election! Well, you say, isn’t that a ways off? Didn’t he just, like, start being president a while ago? How often do they have to run, anyway? Is it two years or four now???

Well yeah. It’s four. But why wait? Donald Trump breaks the mold again. No one for a minute thinks that he *won’t* run for president in 2020. What, really, is the point of being coy about it? We will discuss.

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast, number 163, for February 22, 2018, it’s the California Dreamers edition of the show with your faithful hosts, Todd Feinburg, radio guy and Mike Stopa, nanophysicist. This week we explore two very juicy topics that will get you furious at the riggers and the schemers. First, California, according to a report released by the Census Department, now has the highest poverty rate in the United States – just edging Arizona. The main stream media appears to be totally flummoxed as to how that could happen. Isn’t California liberal *enough*??? Don’t they tax and redistribute more energetically than any state in the nation? What could possibly have gone wrong? It couldn’t have anything to do with, you know, the fact that they import poverty from Latin America at record setting levels, could it?

And speaking of importing poverty from Mexico and beyond, how does it stand now with the Dreamers that the latest push for Comprehensive Immigration Reform a.k.a. illegal alien amnesty has gone nowhere in the Senate? The Dreamers are now saying that they cannot accept amnesty if it means that their parents have to go back to where they came from. Alas, no one is yet demanding that they do so…but some day perhaps.

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for February 16, 2018, it’s number 162, the Liz Warren 2020! edition of the show with your humble hosts, Todd Feinburg, radio guy and Mike Stopa nanophysicist. This week, in anticipation of her nomination, election and coronation in 2020, is our all Liz week! What’s the point of swimming upstream? Socialism is nigh. We didn’t build it! Who doesn’t need a shrill school marm to keep us all in line? Who doesn’t yearn for that Patron Saint of people who can’t read the fine print on their credit card application?

We will reveal some things you never knew about Granny Warren and discuss some things you know only too well.

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political podcast number 161 it’s the Devin Nunes, Man of Steele edition of the show with your humble hosts, radio guy Todd Feinburg and nanophysicist Mike Stopa. In this week’s edition we dissect, trisect, septasect the Nunes memo, the Steele dossier (yichh!) and the FBI cabal that is working night and day to take Trump down.

This is a serious discussion. Of course the legacy media on the left (did I repeat myself?) are doing nothin but “debunking.” They call it fact checking but they set out with the clear and unvarnished objective to cut the Nunes memo down to size. Newsweek’s treatment is particularly egregious in its one-sidedness. But is the right a bit unhinged as well? Stopa thinks so, Todd is unconvinced. Is there really a conspiracy in the FBI? or is it simply partisanship that has gotten excessive? We will discuss.

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political podcast for January 29, 2018, it’s the The Glenn Reynolds Interview: Listen to it All edition of the show, episode number 160! Our special guest this week is the purveyor of Instapundit himself, Glenn Reynolds. We are truly psyched to have Glenn on. He represents the best in independent, libertarian, power-suspicious and iconoclastic podcast voices in the history of the internet.

We will have, in addition to the interview with Glenn, a discussion about gridlock and why it’s so bad after all. The New York Times blathers on about how Donald Trump has demolished the sweet, bipartisan spirit that had been, up until recently, embracing Washington for, how long? who knows?

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for January 23, 2018, it’s the Whither the Street Walkers? edition of the show with your humble Johns radio guy Todd Feinburg and nanophysicist Mike Stopa. This week we ask why aren’t the street walkers embraced whole-heartedly by the March for Women and the #MeToo movement? After all, who has more right to wear a pussy hat than professional sex workers? They have appeared this year at the Women’s March in Las Vegas (where their profession is, of course, legal) with their insignia red umbrellas, but they seem to generate some, er, friction with the movement, so to speak. We will analyze.

And then, the #NeverTrumpers….again….An interesting article by David Frum in the Atlantic. According to Frum, conservatives need to be culturally modern, economically inclusive and environmentally responsible. According to Frum, Trump appealed to what was mean and cruel and shameful.

Well it worked for the Long Blockchain nee Island Ice Tea Corporation, why can’t it work for us? The former Harvard Lunch Club Political podcast is now the Harvard Bitcoin Club Podcast…or maybe it’s the Harvard Lunch Club Bitcoin podcast…we’re not sure yet. But the Long Island Iced Tea Company tripled their share price last month after catching the bitcoin wave with a catchy name change to go along with their business model change. So we too are going for it!

In this edition of the Harvard Bitcoin Club podcast we talk about…Bitcoin! and then some more about bitcoin! and then (to show how flexible we are) we talk about racism and Donald Trump.

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for January 10, 2018, number 157, it’s the Let’s Go Get Sessions Stoned edition of the show with your Magical Mystery Tour guides Todd Feinburg and Mike Stopa.

This week we explore the non-changes to the federal law prohibiting the sale and use of marijuana and the radical suggestion (hasn’t he done this before?) by A.G. Jeff Sessions that we enforce the existing law!!! Where did they find this guy? Hasn’t he been around Washington enough to know that we pick and choose which laws we enforce based on our perceived anticipation of the arc of history? Our HLC edition #80 contains our interview with then Senator Sessions and is here.
