Scientific Podcast Goes Boink, Episode 21: Barry Bonds' Relentless Truculence

It's another Scientific Podcast Goes Boink, this time with special guest Jeb Lund! Things go all over the place, so strap in and enjoy the ride.

This week, Pete and Bill are thrilled -- THRILLED! -- to be joined by Jeb Lund, AKA the former Mobutu Sese Seko. The three comrades discuss a wide range of topics on this extra-long episode, including (but not limited to) Barrold Lamar Bonds, doxxing, Cuba Gooding Jr., 60 Chicken McNuggets in 60 minutes, writing a video for a Metallica song, exactly what the hell is Vevo, B. Brian Blair in all his glory, why Florida is the way it is and lots more.

Excerpt:

Jeb: [The original, British House of Cards] has that attitude, "We don't have to redeem anyone here." Whereas the American one feels like somebody who just found out that politics is a rigged game, like last week, writing a screenplay about it. "People have gotta know!" The British one is just like, "All of these people are scum. Everybody. Poor people, rich people, left, right, everybody, we're all scum. We suck."
Bill: Right. The British certainly came to that realization a long time before we did.
