Guests: Mick Sloniowski, Marshall Auerback and Jason Woodell

The League gathers a bevy of eminent members to break free from the cabin fever and swirling anxieties we’re all feeling during these surreal times. We discussed conspiracy theories, losing creature comforts, how the perfect wartime analogy doesn’t work when there’s little unity and cooperation between countries of the world, how this pandemic is exposing our supply chain weaknesses and a lack of basic political cognition and will, why Doug Ford looks like gold and Donald Trump continues to pretend it’s all about gold, how 30 million unemployed Americans will likely ensure that domestic abuse, suicide rates and general mental health challenges will likely remain our greatest existential threat. Trust me, it’s not all doom and gloom.
Theme: Peaches (The Presidents of the United States of America, 1995)
