What Am Germany?

What Am Germany?

When talking about Germany, often the subject turns to that big bad thing that happened with all those countries and that horrible monster of a man. So, rather than threading that tired ground, Steve and Richie made an episode focusing on Germany's fascinating origins and it's role in the modern world. All without ever mentioning... that thing.

What Am The Politics of Sex?

What Am The Politics of Sex?

Everyone can agree that sex is super sexy. But what about the disagreements that sex causes in politics?

Because they clearly don’t have anything else to argue about, politicians are always fighting over things like ‘family values’, porn, sex workers and sex education.  And how is sex approached in different countries?

It’s so scary, in fact, that Steve and Richie needed an adult to help them be brave boys and show them how it can be fixed. Enter Mark Little, journalist, entrepreneur, and all round great guy.

What Am Midterms?

What Am Midterms?

Yes, the buffoonery and bloviating that comes from the Oval Office can be quite distracting, but there is so much more to running the United States than the antics of the tangerine toddler. The US Houses of Congress creates laws, holds governmental hearings, conducts investigations, and serves as the voice of the people. On November 6th, American citizens will vote in the midterm elections for the Congressmen/women and Senators they wish to represent them.
