Episode Summary

In this episode, JR winds up Molly talking about shoulder surgery, that naturally segues to Mahatma Gandhi and Christian Nationalism before we veer of into deep hypocrisies and moral failings in the church in America. We close the show by discussing the need for increased vigilance with the advent of AI and how we need to reorient ourselves now. As usual, there's at least one recipe.
