This episode Gustav is blessed to have Professor Brad join him for the second part of their rambling conversation which covers prostitution, environmental determinism, circumcision talk and the Articles of Confederation.
Professor Brad is an award winning historian and author and Gustav of course is just a guy who thinks he knows stuff. So it’s only natural for the two of them to discuss the possible merits for society of prostitution. Then they misidentify the wrong historic Louisiana governor, but that’s not important, since they were on a roll.
Brad tries to lure Gustav into political talk, but instead they settle on discussing their general location on the current political spectrum which then turns into Articles of Confederation talk. That leads to further discussion of socialism, democracy and libertarianism.
Gus asks if Brad remembered being as angry politically in his youth as the current landscape seems to be. The idea that a president needs a “Bad Guy” adversary is postulated.
Discussing presidents brings up the idea of the winners in history not always having to answer for their own sins as great as the defeated must. Gus and Brad discuss FDR’s internment camps as a prime example.
And then Brad yanks the wheel and we head into the ditch for circumcision talk which somehow leads to Brad dispelling environmental determinism.
