Topics of Discussion:
Thomas: Hello and welcome to Opening Arguments, this is episode 479. I’m Thomas, that’s Andrew. How’re you doing?
Andrew: I am fantastic, but also literally angry with rage. [Laughs]
Thomas: Oh, wow!
Andrew: So, how are you?
Thomas: I am – I mean, my angry with rage is that we’ve had to wait so long to get the thrilling part 2!
Thomas: This is like a real Star Wars situation, you know? You’ve gotta wait years for the sequels.
Thomas: I mean, back when they were good.
Andrew: You’re not kidding.
Thomas: The last one was really bad. Anyway.
Andrew: Oh god, yeah.
Thomas: Anyway, now we’re stirring up crap to good fans every which way, that’s how it works. Hey, Andrew, quick reminder for everybody, I know it’s the day this show is out, but we’ve got our Patreon Q&A, that’s our monthly Q&A where questions are available to patrons only and patrons also get to kind of vote on which questions they like, but everybody gets to come watch on YouTube, on the Opening Arguments YouTube channel, so everybody, that’s tonight as you’re possibly hearing this, that’s Tuesday the 6th at 3 pm Pacific, 6 pm Eastern. Come check us out, it’s so fun on YouTube. The questions are always great, Andrew’s ridiculous basement wall with a hole in it is always fun.
Andrew: Yeah, yeah.
Thomas: And the green screen off to the side that captures a couple pixels of the screen, very useful.
Thomas: Anyway [Laughs] Andrew curses at his dialup modem. It’s fun time for everybody.
Andrew: We do – all of those things are 100% true.
Thomas: [Laughs] One more time, Tuesday the 6th at 3 pm Pacific, 6 pm Eastern, we’ll see you there. But we’ve got to talk about originalism. This is part 2, it’s part 2 of 2 but not really because we could go forever. Part 2 of however many we can get to, essentially.
Thomas: I have leftover questions, I can’t wait to get into it. As a reminder, go back and check out 477 if you haven’t because this is part 2 of that conversation about originalism, so don’t miss that one. If you’re just coming to this one fresh, go back, check out 477, I’ll wait. No, no, you can just pause. Never mind.
Thomas: I don’t have to wait. Ah, technology! Isn’t it amazing? [Laughs] Go do that and now we’ll get to part 2, here we go.
