Episode 46 is uniquely dedicated to both Buddy Ryan’s 46 Defense and strong safety Doug Plank, “probably the most impactful player in football history that you never heard of.”
After reflecting on the Chicago Bears 1985 season, Nick draws similarities to virtue signaling surrounding pandemic management, specifically New York City Mayor Eric Adams exempting athletes and performers from the city’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate. “Shows how the elite have one set of rules, and then the rest of us have to live with a very different, less-free set of rules, that are much more stifling,” says Nick.
Next, Nick discusses President Biden’s recent comments on America’s “dependency on fossil fuels.” Followed by an analysis of gasoline prices and the Democratic response, as well as a look at how the prices of everything—from food containers to mortgages—is rising. Nick goes on to discuss the recent Bloomberg column “Inflation Stings Most If You Earn Less Than $300K. Here’s How to Deal.”; comments on companies that continue to do business with Russia; and reflects on P.J. O’Rourke and John Hughes.
