On this episode, Dan discusses how being a podcast host has led him to be overly confident about his knowledge of facts; Eric counters by reflecting on his over-enthusiasm and thoughtless reliance on broad adjectives. They also discuss matters of greater substance: Margaret Talbot on US immigration policy; reporter William Finnegan and his thoughtful piece about presidential hopeful Beto O'Rourke; Pulitzer prize winner Emily Nussbaum on television in the #metoo era; and Rivka Galchen on the story behind the creation of Curious George. A nice, long episode, with lots of good banter and discussion.
