Allergic to Policy

August 25, 2016


The Chief kicks off the show by asking Lou Michels – “What would it take for you to adopt an all cash money system again?”

They discuss everything from the newly minted Guaranteed Rate Field to what would happen in Chicago if there was an extreme earthquake to Chief’s round of golf yesterday.

We ask the question – what are hardcore Trump voters actually voting for? Policy, ideals, or hate?

Just how corrupt is this epipen price hike? How deep does it go? We finish off the show with a heated debate about competitiveness across different industries before Chief challenges Lou to a real discussion about foreign policy on next week’s show.
