A note on this episode:

There are lots of frustrations about this guest and his premise. I will address this in future episodes, including next week’s episode with criminologist Peter Moskos, but in the meantime, you can find Rob Wipond’s sourcing here. And I will renew my efforts to get Freddie DeBoer on the pod!
