Ep. 11: The Oxford English Dictionary and "Post-Truth"
Episode 11 of the NonProphets podcast, in which Atief, Robert, and Scott discuss the Oxford English Dictionary choosing "Post-Truth" as the 2016 word of the year, then discuss a listener question about polling, forecasting, and the practical differences between cautious and confident positions (27:07). They then speculate about some possible future events related to elections, including electoral college reform, making election day a national holiday, faithless electors, and the possibility of a Trump impeachment (37:45). They close with a discussion about what we might see, at least preliminarily, with respect to Trump's foreign policy, and then discuss the problems with naming your child "Kermit" (46:58).
