HLC-123 Southern Fried Terrorism

HLC-123 Southern Fried Terrorism

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for June 6, 2017, it’s episode 123, the Southern Fried Terror edition of the podcast coming to you this week (or so it may sound) from the moon! Todd is in Farmington Connecticut, Mike is in Palo Alto, we are recording the podcast on a Dictaphone Steampunk Victorian Recording machine. You can *hear* the history!

Our topics this week are the reaction of Theresa May to the terror attacks in London and related thoughts. As the people of Britain ask: “what concretely are you going to *do*???” May answers (unbelievably) we’re going to spy on the internet…and we are going to have uncomfortable conversations. Look, uncomfortable conversations are fine and all…but how about simply rounding up the 3000 or so top terror suspects in the U.K. and either expelling them or locking them up?

Topic number two, we veer away from our proposed topic of Bill Maher and Kathy Griffin to talk about Trump’s withdrawal (not a moment too soon) from the Paris Accords. Oh, bliss. The wounded animal screams of the armageddon profiteers are music to our ears.

We will have, as always, our shower thoughts (re-enter Bill and Kathy) and our hidden gem for the week is the Lou Reed classic, Sweet Jane.

If you like the podcast, please drop us a couple bucks for a coffee, won’t ye mate?
