Episode 8 – Gentrified

Sorry for the slight delay.  This week Matt and I rant about the anti-vaccination campaign.  Why are there counties in California with lower levels of vaccination than third-world countries?  These are, supposedly, educated people.  Also, we talk about an article that states gentrification is a myth.  Do you agree?  To round out the episode we cover Suge Knights arrest for murder and the usual entertainment round up.
