In this slightly more freeform episode, the smartest guys in the room discuss what they expect in the Presidential race; including wedge issues and appeals to different demographics. As always, there are smart suggestions and then we wrap up with some fun at Edgar Allan Poe’s expense.
The fellas discuss Apple and price fixing, and we’re not talking about the cost of Gala and Pink Delicious. Jordan phones it in on his Smart Suggestion yet again, and Dean may or may not have ownership in Apple stock. Featuring the songs “No Slow Dancing” by Austin Leonard Jones and “The Beach!
