EP19: A Nuclear Bomb Won’t Probe your Uranus

Thanks for listening to the Junto Show!

Sep 14, 2017

The “Junto” is a club Benjamin Franklin founded way back when America was Great.
The purpose of the Junto was to debate questions of morals, politics, and natural
philosophy. Our show’s not quite that stuffy, but here and there we stumble upon
something profound between the geeky jokes.

The Junto Show is three friends, one black, one white, and one asian who get together
and discuss the news of the day, leadership, pop culture, and whatever else comes to
mind. We bring our unique perspectives to the table and hash it all out.
