Podcast 82: West Wing Season 5 wrap up

 As we have mentioned time and again this is truly the beginning of the decline of the West Wing. We had a great time rehashing the bright spots and abusing the mistakes in our season 5 wrap up. Thanks again to our loyal listeners for their thoughts (Jim, JD, and Mohammad). We also cover episodes 21-22 of The West Wing, Season 5.

Various topics discussed in this podcast include:
    Should we get TW5 merchandise?
    Joey's Culture Corner: Article 5 of the Constitution
    Principles of an American Life: Little Brother by Cory Doctorow
    It's not the situation that made you act in a certain way
    The writers are wrong to be fiddling around with long standing characters
    Music by Shayna Zaid
