Has it been four years already? It’s time for the Olympics yet again and the guys sit down to talk about it. There will be no sports analysis on this episode, instead we will be breaking down everything that surrounds the Olympic Games. Has the idea of bringing the world together for a single event to promote unity become antiquated? What is the cost not just in dollars but in human life to host the Olympics? Should economically unstable countries host the Olympics, and is it fair for the people who live in these cities? Do the Olympics pose a threat not just economically, but a threat to the stability of a nationalistic mob mentality? And of course, will we and will you be watching the Olympics? The guys also review a new craft beer and apologize for their laziness in maintaining a strict schedule during the dog days of summer. All this and more on episode #48 of The Philosophy Jerks!
