    Episode Two: Healthcare (Part One)

    Episode Two: Healthcare (Part One)

    In which guest host, Angie Horn, joins us to complain about healthcare in the United States, among other related s****y things in American politics and norms.

    Note: The Nixon tapes referenced in this episode record a conversation between John D. Ehrlichman and Nixon, where Erlichman mentions Edward Kaiser running his healthcare company for profit. The founder of Kaiser Permanente, Henry J. Kaiser, preceded Edward Kaiser by many years. We misstate that the founder was George Kaiser. George Kaiser is someone else entirely.

    Also of note: Laura Jean apologizes for the many grumbles and sighs and sniffles in this episode. She needed more healthcare.
