After a somewhat lengthy introduction segment, Scott, Adam, Dave and Tanner (The Barber Shop Boys) play a game where Adam says the name of the a pop culture icon that passed away in 2017, and the rest of the gang compete to see who can first, successfully demonstrate that they know who the icon is. Nobody performs well, but Scott technically has the most points, making him the winner. We continue on, discussing the #metoo moment and talking about several of the people being accused of alleged sexual misconduct. We additionally talk about Trump's presidency, and "political larping".
Tanner takes us through some notable moments in the realm of science... namely Space X, privatized space travel, the first object to come through our solar system being identifiable as originating from outside of our solar system, the Cassini space probe, and the discovery of a large chamber in one of the Egyptian pyramids.
Finally, we finish up discussing NFL protests in one of our most confrontational, yet confusing segments yet. We really hope you enjoyed reflecting on 2017 with us, and we look forward to many more years providing content to our listeners and supporters. Murray Christmas, and a Hoppe new year from the contributors of the Ancap Barber Shop and Pax Libertas Productions!
And a happy Capitalismas.
