This episode features a clip from Al Pitcher's stand-up routine from the Raw Comedy Club discussing his inability to learn to speak Swedish despite living in Stockholm and wanting to learn. The music I talked over this episode was "Le Bateleur" by Max Von Sydow, "Cuban Lips" by Yttling Jazz, and "Clean Gloves, Dirty Hands" by Smile, all from the album Ingrid Volym 1 (iTunes, Amazon).
This episode features a clip from HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher, where Bill addresses Ben Franklin's famous (if inaccurately perceived) quote about sacrificing liberty for security, the 4th amendment, and the trade-offs between them in our current world.
This episode features from Comedy Central's new series Inside Amy Schumer which is very funny.

This episode features a clip from The Colbert Report about NYC's awesome new bike share system Citi Bikes, which you can watch unedited on the Colbert Nation website, as well as a clip from a recent episode of HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher where he debunks the common wisdom that Ronald Reagan wouldn't be conservative enough to be accepted by today's batshit crazy Republican Party. To the contrary, he'd fit right in.
