Two high school teachers, Patrick and Dennis, formulate a thesis statment, thought experiment, or construct a debate on topics they would love to teach in the classroom but content standards and curriculum maps do not permit. One host chooses a topic and each host is only permitted a week’s worth of research, hence the almost part of the show.  Then the pair analyze, examine, and debate said topic using logic, data, historical precedence, philosophy, and pop culture for around an hour.

Topics can range from alternate history, philosophical debate, postulations on utopia, transhumanism, geopolitics of space colonization, education, and Detroit history.

Finally each week Dennis and Patrick subject each other to a random insane five question warm up quiz loosely connected that the week’s topic

  1. Hello, my name is Brendan Pratt and I am a huge fan of the show. I often participate in the discussion by speaking out loud to the podcast. I know this is a long shot, but I was wondering if you would let me participate in an episode or two. If this sounds like something that you would like to pursue please send me an email, I look forward to possibly hearing back and talking more with you!
