S4 E1: Introduction: Thinking About Politics
Show Notes

This is the start to potentially the most rant-filled season of all time! For Season 4, we are reading Alan Ryan's On Politics, a book discussing the history of political theory from Herodotus to the modern day. In this episode, we discuss the introduction as well as give an introduction for this season as a whole. We discuss the Athenian and Roman degrees of citizenship, how to think about politics, why it's not a good idea to have direct democracy, and much more! We also have the first of many long rants about the direct election of U.S. senators!  Follow us on Twitter! @UlmtdOpinions
