In Greetings from Europe we discuss the Syrian refugees flooding into Europe and the need for immigrants to assimilate into their new country. Plus religious freedom and gay marriage. Trump takes an oath. Sanders refuses to feed the beast. Losing our faith in institutions and what is truth anyway? All that and Carl goes without his cellphone for a week. Leave your opinion myopia at the door, it’s time for Carl and Mike.

[01:53:] Podcasting, Cell Phones and the Need to Connect: Carl goes cell-phone less for a week, which leads into a conversation about the need to connect and how technology helps or hampers the communication process.
