Join the Paradox team (Matthias, Jordan, Zach) and our guest Dina Fraioli for the 17th episode of the Paradox Project Podcast.
Zach - There should be a healthcare law that keeps you from having to pay 7,000 small bills that slowly come trickling in.
Dina - I know nothing other than politics because I've been in a grand jury for three weeks. "Apparently I've hung out in a lot of neighborhoods that are not good."
Jordan - I wanted a middle ground with the discussion around the new Barbie body sizes because progressives tended to go overboard with making it a huge feminist landmark but conservatives had a weird annoyed backlash against it.
We discuss whether or not the Best Actor/Best Actress division will change to be more progressive, satirizing a bit on how complicated progressivism makes everything. We (mostly) agree that it probably won't and dismiss the idea as ridiculous.
GOP Debate/Iowa Caucuses
Dina celebrates how the Iowa Caucuses are distinctly American because it's "people sitting and deliberating." She wishes more political process were the same way. She gives a summary of why the Iowa Caucuses are important.
We make predictions for tomorrow's Iowa Caucuses and the Super Bowl.
Jordan - Ted Cruz will win.
Matthias - Agrees that Ted Cruz will win. It all comes down to whether or not Trump's campaign is organized enough.
Dina - The important thing for Rubio is that he needs to place in a very close third. She points out that New Hampshire and other vital primaries are still in play.
Jordan confesses that she has never watched a Super Bowl and doesn't even know who's playing. Dina tells her to shut her adorable face. All of us except Zach predict that the Panthers will win.
