Season 2, Episode 5: Pragmatism vs. Idealism

After briefly reviewing the weeks' major economic policy speeches from Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, we dive into a discussion of whether and to what extent ethics in politics still matter. Should politicians be judged by voters on the ways they use power, or should we, as Sarah likes to say, stop hating the players and hate the game? We talk about ethical judgments of Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, and third parties. In The Heels, we talk about our newfound interests in bullet journaling.
