There's No Time To Explain #15: Greg Daniels
I have a conversation with Greg Daniels, owner of OneWebsitePlease.com, a full-service website development company, and host of the Untitled Personal Podcast Project. Greg and I share some conversational proclivities, mainly, never missing an opportunity to go off on a tangent and jumping off the deep end, reading the infinite in the mundane. Needless to say, it's a long episode. We talk about how his podcast and the mix of personalities featured led to some pretty testy moments between people with differing opinions. We talk about the nature of belief and what it takes for religious believers to reconsider their world view. Greg makes the case that Teddy, my son, is a minor web celebrity. My daughter punches Greg in the nuts. We discuss the oddly compelling world of the live-streaming app, Periscope. I ask Greg to weigh in on the political lip service heaped on small business owners as the economic engine of this country and we end up discussing the seemingly intentional and focused disenfranchisement of voters as a way to control elections and maintain power. We talk about what liberty, freedom, and happiness meant to the founding fathers. Greg and I agree 100% on the important issue of NOT wearing socks with sandals. We review Captain America:Civil War and unpack all the political allegory offered up in the movie. This discussion contains SPOILERS for Civil War. During my rant, I make the case that Republican primary voters who are unhappy with Trump as the nominee should change the race now by switching party affiliation and voting for Bernie Sanders in the remaining Democratic primaries and caucuses.
