In our latest podcast, Jessica and I discussed the past week in politics and atheism.
We talked about:

— Pete Buttigieg had a weird week when it came to vaccination policy. (3:50)

— Why are these men not going to jail for their crimes? (10:48)
— Pat Robertson, in rare form, said something sensible about Creationism. Now Creationists are complaining about it. (13:59)
