James Damore – Inside Google's Ideological Echo Chamber, Outrage Culture, and Deep State Media Scandals

In This Episode

Porter and Buck welcome James Damore, the ex-Google engineer and author of the viral internal company memo Google’s Ideological Echo Chamber. Why did Damore get fired for questioning progressive workplace diversity practices applied to hiring and promotion? Hear Porter tell you what really caught his attention while reading Damore’s memo, and what he thinks led us to the current lose-lose state of gender and race politics in business. Has discrimination become the new office inclusion policy in America?

Porter and Buck discuss the storm of deep state media sexual harassment scandals from Hollywood to Capitol Hill. Al Franken, John Lasseter, Charlie Rose, Harvey Weinstein, and Roy Moore are just a few examples of the latest business and political figures to fall. Buck has an explanation as to why this behavior has been allowed to go on for so long, and how this is just the beginning of these kind of salacious revelations.

Porter and Buck answer listener feedback about US state debt levels, Saint Gaudens rare coins, and whether-or-not the US will take a page from Japan’s economic playbook to deal with the trillions in debt piling up in America.
