This episode features a clip from HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher where Bill chastises liberals who talk about being unwilling to support the lesser of two liberal candidates because one isn't sufficiently pure. As a life-long Bernie supporter who loves Ralph Nader, I can relate to both sides, but I 100% agree with Bill here. Hillary's going to be just fine if enough people don't let perfect be the enemy of the good.

This episode features an extended clip of Sam Harris' Waking Up podcast where he discusses Meat Without Misery with Uma Valeti, cardiologist and CEO of Memphis Meats. I don't normally put such long clips on, but this is something I'm particularly interested in, and I couldn't get it any shorter. Also, while the clip is long it is nevertheless significantly edited down. So if you're interested, listen to the whole interview.
