This is the third episode of the Politerian podcast: a new podcast dedicated to intelligent discussion of political issues. In this episode, Josh Carr, Jon Ruth, and Andy Ottoson discuss Entitlements in the United States and Josh’s new proposal for replacing our current system. This is only part one of the discussion. If it seems like it ends abruptly, we’re sorry, but the rest will be available next week.

This is not a discussion we take lightly. We expect to revisit this conversation regularly in the show and hope that you’ll let us know what you think in the comments. Keep it civil and clean, otherwise you will be banned. Thanks!

Our hosts, Josh, Jon and Andy, are very opinionated realists that love to debate politics. While none of them are politicians, they still keep up with the current issues and never get tired of chowing down on the latest political drama. Jon is our resident liberal and Andy is our resident conservative. Josh gets to play moderator and sifts through the trash to come up with intelligent topics for our listeners. We will never talk stupidly about a link-bait topic. We are here to be your filter from the biased stupidity in the world of politics.

As we move forward with the podcast, we will cover the most important topics each week, have interviews with analysts and politicians alike, Q&A from our listeners, etc. We want your feedback. Sure, we’re doing this show because we love the attention, but we’re also doing it for you. If we mess up, we expect you to tell us. If you want us to answer a question, ask it. Feel free to leave a comment and we’ll get back to you.
