Episode Seventeen: Demagogues

Another theme show this week, as Tim and Tom spend all three segments talking about demagogues.

In the news, we talk about a recent editorial by physicist Lawrence Krauss in which he lambasts religion in the name of science.

In history, we talk about the anniversary of the HUAC hearings that ultimately created the Hollywood Blacklist.

And in the arts, we talk about the magnum opus of Novelist Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged, and how that novel plays out in modern American politics.
