Michael starts the podcast off with excerpts from an interview with Clint Eastwood. Clint answers the question, “What is the pussy generation?” He also goes on to give his take on what is wrong with the US presidential election, unemployment and free education. Michael sums up the interview saying, “I do love that this 86 year old tough guy is telling us…”
