First up Mark and Jonathan discuss the take over of Afghanistan by the Taliban! As with anything within touching distance of Trump, this entire thing wreaks of bad Trump decisions and trying to leave people holding the bag. The soldiers in the field were already living and working in Afghanistan, so this is nothing new for them. It's new to people in the USA on social media. So the men discuss in realms of American voters and what they should be paying attention to.
Next up, the guys discuss the anti-vaccine people and how their decisions are affecting the day to day life of people in America. Mark forgets his friends name but that brings up the fact that many people are crazy with their hatred of the vaccine. Jonathan brings up Chet Hanks and how his father couldn't possibly be proud to be associated with his son. This leads to a discussion about people that are conspiracy theorists and how they never grab on to educated science in life.
Finally, Mark wants to discuss diversity in media and specifically brings up this past Olympics coverage by NBC and how he is noticing it more and more with the panels of people they are choosing. But things take years to slowly implement and is this being shoved down peoples throats, or are we there now? Mark gets surprised by some info from Mr. May and it may make him understand better. You decide. All this and more from this episode of the Q.
