Episode 16 - Political Polarization on the Left and Right

April 6, 2018
00:0000:00

 

So you're saying...you're alt right? Alt left? Is there room in-between anymore in our increasingly polarized political theatre for moderation and compromise.  Has political correctness gone too far? Is there a free speech crisis on college campuses?

Join the Thunk Tank crew as we discuss the state of modern political polarization in America . Good think we had some beers on hand for this one. Perhaps politicians should follow suit? X)

We are also happy to announce a new website for proper long form thunking where we will write longer blog posts to accompany episodes.  Read this episodes blog post at the following link:

"I urge you to please notice when you are happy, and exclaim or murmur or think at some point, 'If this isn’t nice, I don’t know what is.'" We couldn't agree more, Mr. Vonnegut! As such, why not crack a beer and join us in episode 10 - Kurt Vonnegut! In this first of many double digit episodes to come we discuss the late, great dark satirist author of the 20th century, none other than Kurt Vonnegut. Featuring plenty of classic quotes, literary discussion, and of course great beer, dive into the tank with us and explore the wonderfully thoughtful mind of one of modern history's most cutting and cunning social commentators.

The good news? We made it through 2017! The bad, well, we drank all the beer. But no worries! 2018 is almost here, and as such, there's plenty to be proud of and look forward to in the coming year. What reflections should we meditate on? What changes can we make within both ourselves and in society? What beers should we crack come January 1st? Explore these questions - and hopefully answers - in our end of year episode, "2017 Year in Review". 

Lastly, please check us out on our other platforms! Thank you all so much for a fantastic 2017 - we couldn't do this without all of your support, and we can't wait to continue bringing you great beer, cheer, and thunking in 2018. Happy New Year to all, and to all a good drink!
