Weekly Podcast: Boston Aftermath

Joe and Nick discuss yesterday’s bombing in Boston. In particular, the panel addresses the flurry of media (and social media) speculation and the relative merits and demerits of a world where news is valued for speed as much as substance. They also discuss whether there is any value to even trying to make deductions based on the deluge of information from questionable sources. Finally, they shift gears and discuss Rand Paul’s recent trip to Howard University and ponder whether Paul’s disastrous appearance has long-lasting effects for the GOP.
