On Truth and Lies in the Age of Trump

Donald Trump and his administration have consistently lied to the American public. So much so that it invites us to seriously reflect on the nature of lying itself.

In this podcast, Justin D., Dylan, Zach, and Justin C. discuss political lies and their implications. In particular, they focus on mass-scale political lies and the proper way for politicians to come clean about them.


In the second half(ish) of our episode on Dylan’s article, “How to Apologize for a Lie,” we discuss dirty hands in politics, politicians’ lies, utilitarianism, strict liability, and Trump even makes a cameo. Everything one would want from a podcast.
