e57. You Kant Like That!

If you’ve listened to the show before you know that Hannah and Mav have an ongoing argument about how Riverdale is the best show on television and Hannah is incorrect in thinking that The Good Place is instead (and you can probably tell which one of us wrote the copy for this episode from that). You’ve probably been ins some kind of similar argument yourself: Marvel vs DC, Star Wars vs Star Trek, Beatles vs The Rolling Stones, EMACS vs vi, less filling vs. tastes great, left Twix vs. right Twix. Honestly, it’s all in good fun (until someone loses an eye), but it begs an interesting question: Why do we care if people like the things we like anyway? There’s actually a lot of complicated philosophical and cultural reasons why. Well, Mav and Hannah are joined by returning guest Danny Anderson break down the reasons why arguments about taste exist, what they mean, how they work and what we can learn from them. Give it a listen and let us know your thoughts.
