We are joined by DIU Podcast’s substitute co-host, Kyle – who recently hooked the entire team up with fidget spinners!!! Gavin recalls Jack’s hatred for the toy on episode 51. Times have since changed, as Jack is the most obsessed with the toy out of the entire group.
Gavin brings in the topic of China’s Nobel laureate Liu Xiaobo passing away from multiple organ failure. Serving an 11-year prison sentence in China for “inciting inversion of state power,” Liu was denied access to medical treatment abroad. Many critics are outraged that China would not release the prisoner. We discuss if there is a “right” or a “wrong” approach to this situation, as well as brief thoughts on China and Communism. Meanwhile, Jack, undoubtedly self-conscious about his current position in life, talks about how many young adults are still living with their parents. We talk about how this was stigmatized in the past, but is slowly becoming more and more acceptable as cost of living continues to rise.
Afterwards, the Love Guru tells us about the three different types of men in this world – alpha, beta, and omegas – in a part one of this week’s Kao Lui Corner topic.
PS: I’m still waiting for the fidget spinner I ordered off Amazon for $3.57 – as mentioned on episode 51.
Edit: The package finally came on September 9th, 2017.
