Podcast Ep. 310: Eugenics “Works,” Says Richard Dawkins

— High school girls are suing to prevent trans athletes from competing against them. (21:26)

— A professor who refused to call a student by the proper pronoun has lost his legal challenge. (22:22)

— Holy Land Experience, a Christian theme park, looks like it’ll be shutting down soon. (24:24)

— For some reason, Richard Dawkins wants you to know that eugenics works. (28:30)

— A satirical pro-Trump road sign was a bit too realistic for many. (43:22)
