Episode #147: Zuck v. Musk, empty resolutions, Sidewalk Heart Guy

Goldbrener isn’t buying his partner’s antipathy toward the Sidewalk Chalk Heart Guy, no matter how persuasive the argument that the whimsical drawings are, in fact, vandalism, but he’s completely on board when it comes to choosing people over coyotes.

Is a Board of Supervisors resolution condemning anti-semitism good for the Jews?

Most of the second half of this podcast is taken up by the Elon Musk v.

Goldbrener ranges far afield, eventually doing a deep dive into  the welfare system and drones, but he does not manage to incorporate Israel into the discussion, thus losing his bet with Rosen. As for this week’s question, resolutions are nice, but ultimately, what do they mean?
