Jefferson Smith and Courtenay Hameister join forces on today’s show to discuss a wide range of topics. Yes, Jefferson talks some more about his mayoral run, including discussions on learning difficult lessons like: “Just admit you’re wrong when you’re wrong, and try to be better,” and why most politicians avoid that particular advice at every opportunity. Why money doesn’t matter, until it matters, which sounds really simple until you realize how many elections happen (from mayoral to presidential) where nobody ever looks at the money. How running a campaign doesn’t have to be “Let’s beat this guy” and how telling people you’re the honest, integrity-filled campaign is a sure way to let people know you’re pretty dishonest and lacking integrity. But there’s also discussions on The Superman Problem, and why Marvel supeheroes tend to resonate more with people than the DC heroes, why Prometheus worked for Jefferson when it didn’t work for a lot of other people, barfy pets and how to handle them, and why the hell would you stay in a room you KNOW has a bunch of radioactive spiders in it?
