Think Again Podcast | Jim Gaffigan | You're Attacking My Grandpa?

source: Big Think    2016年8月29日
Jim Gaffigan is a Grammy nominated stand-up comedian and the New York Times best-selling author of “Dad is Fat” and other books, and he’s about to launch the second season of his semi-fictitious TV show, The Jim Gaffigan Show.
Each week on Think Again, we surprise smart people you may have heard of with short clips from Big Think's interview archives on every imaginable subject. These conversations could, and do, go anywhere. http://bigthink.com/think-again-podca...

On this week's episode of Think Again - a Big Think Podcast, Jim and host Jason Gots talk about "othering" people we disagree with, and how bigotry is a bipartisan phenomenon. Trump comes up, as do The Simpsons, Richard Pryor, George Carlin, New Yorkers' weird ideas about the Midwest and vice versa, and Jim's Grandpa (sort of).
Surprise discussion clips in this episode: Princeton historian Sean Wilentz on the Trump phenomenon, Dan Pontefract on working with purpose.
