Episode 202 – 30th August 2013

This week we go in depth on Syria, looking at an academic study on whether interventions are effective, and the reasons why chemical weapons are viewed as so unpleasant. We also talk about the black death and the Sochi Olympics gay rights controversy. Because y’know, we’re keeping it light this week.
