#32: The Comedy of Comey

Of course I talk about the Jura Impressa C60, but this time I also talk about the Keurig and a recent experience with paper filters in both the Keurig 1.0 and the Keurig 2.0. Then I talk about the relationship of politics and culture, and the importance of utilizing accurate generalizations. Then I talk about the circus that is politics—particularly American politics—and I express (mild) remorse that I’m not a funnier person so I could draw out just how hilarious I find politics. And I end the episode with a brief analysis of James Comey’s disastrous feelings.
