Virgil and Brie recap the most important political event of the last week: The new Borat movie.
Also, they briefly review the second and final presidential debate before attempting to unpack Biden's byzantine healthcare policy. The conversation turns into a meditation on the strategic vulnerabilities intrinsic to incrementalism, how a lack of political courage hobbled the ACA, and whether a Biden administration would learn from those mistakes. And drugs. They talk about drugs.
The dynamic duo also discuss Brie's post-debate debate on Tight-Rope Podcast with Dr. Cornel West and Dr. Tricia Rose: The best conversation she's had all year that didn't involve Virgil Texas.
