Episode 080: Musketeers

Play

For the first, last, and only time, we talk about Elon Musk. (Wrong. Sad.)

Most of this episode is a response to Aeon‘s recent piece, “Whitey on Mars.” Whatever, you’ll hear when you hear. What’s important right now is that I tell you this: the word musketeer comes from musket. Musketeers were soldiers who carried muskets. Well what the fuck, how come the Three Musketeers just used swords? My whole life (and yours by extension) is a lie.
