Episode Notes

Listen in as Travis is joined by Chris and Toby, part of the team behind Beyond Binary Thinking - a podcast where they try to discuss a path through the simplistic and tribalistic binary of whatever debates they find worth having. Join them as they share international perspectives on contemporary US presidential politics and discuss how the American "left" isn't really left of center at all.

You can find Chris & Toby's show on all major podcast platforms which they have conveniently linked for you on their website: beyondbinarythinking.com

You can also follow them across social media - Facebook & Twitter - and join in their conversation!

Would You Rather...?

How about some thinkers to cleanse the palate? Enjoy!

  • Much like in the US, both the UK and Sweden have made recreational marijuana illegal. Would you rather see your home country legalize recreational marijuana or see the monarchy abolished?

  • You've been chosen as prime minister of your country and on the first day, a major tabloid in your home country runs a salacious story about your past. Would you rather it be a story of how you stuck a private part of your anatomy into a dead pig's mouth during university or a story about how you paid a porn star for sex while you were married?

  • Prevent your country's socialized healthcare system from being privatized or see responsible climate legislation passed in your home country?

  • You are the president of the US and you're on a visit to the UK and you are giving a sit-down interview with some network. Would you rather be interviewed by Piers Morgan or James Cordon?
