You like beer, and you like conversation, right? Of course you do. Pigweed and Crowhill review a beer (sometimes their own homebrews) and discuss issues of the day. They try to break down serious issues into bite-sized chunks, and add some humor when possible. But it's all in good fun. Just two pals chatting over a beer.
November 545: Five topics in five minutes
#1. The Left controls every institution in America. So if there's "institutional racism" in America, who's to blame?
#2. Mexicans celebrate their indigenous populations on holidays and such, but they are not treated well. It's a caste system.
#3. A French feminist is promoting the idea that women should erase men entirely from their lives.
#4. Pigweed shares his Zen experience with ambient videos.
#5. Is religious revival the only hope for restoring America?
The poor -- what causes poverty, and can we fix it?
What contributes to poverty? Does poverty cause bad neighborhoods? Do bad neighborhoods cause poverty? What makes poverty persist in an area?
A recent study shows a correlation between poor neighborhoods and less impulse control and less ability to delay gratification.
Are better programs and better policies able to fix poverty? (How did the war on poverty work out?)
On the other hand, are there steps people can take to stay out of poverty?
P&C drink and review Guinness' new Bourbon Barrel imperial stout, then call on their friend Longinus to have a chat about charter schools.
How does a charter school start? Where do they have class? Is it public or private? Who pays for it? Who hires the teachers? Why does the public school system cooperate?
Charter school success has been a topic of debate, but it seems clear they have helped inner city minorities. Why then do groups purporting to help inner city minorities oppose charter schools?

The 2020 election: Pigweed and Crowhill reflect
Despite the assurances of the pollsters, and the fact that Democrats severely outspent Republicans, there wasn't a blue wave.
Trump, the allegedly racist president, got more black and Hispanic votes than most Republicans.
Pigweed: "If Trump is up in five states that get slow-walked for a week or ten days, as ballots mysteriously appear, and then they get turned over? I'm calling BS on it."
And now, we brace for the post-election violence.
P&C drink and review Crowhill's Amber German Ale, then discuss homeschooling.
Homeschooling has been on the increase as a result of the pandemic. What exactly is homeschooling? Is it legal? What about socialization? Where do you get your curriculum? How do you get started? What about sports, and band, and clubs?
The boys discuss.

Came here for a Thomas Sowell episode and I’m hooked.
Really enjoy the podcast,lots of info and think they are great.A friendly,accessible podcast.Highly recomended!
These guys may know the beers, but they need to do better research on their discussion topic. The “Seven Deadly Sins” show was wrong from the start. You cannot attach a literal meaning to them. They are more of a gateway drug, into bigger and better things. Stick with simple topics, a Theological discussion on the Catholic religion isn’t a 30 minute podcast.
