In this episode we discuss interpretation. From religious texts to constitution to Jaws, what defines the limits of interpretation? Are we bound to the author’s intent, the most literal reading of the work, or can anything mean whatever we think it means? We talk about all of this and the Nice (not nice) attack. Is this a sign of truck control legislation coming down the pipeline? Has there already been a new attack since then? As always, you get to hear us speculate in real-time! Finally, Colin, for one, welcomes our new Pokemon overlords. Is it worth the hype? Is it worth the cost (free)? Do you wash brand new underwear? Wait, what? Nevermind.
