The boys kick it Ancient Greece style once more, discussing Aristophanes' uproarious comedy The Clouds. Bouncing off a reader question, they discuss what Aristophanes' view of Socrates, the main target of the play, actually is. They also talk conservatism in art and whether society can withstand massive upheaval, and dissect some of the trickier formal elements of the play.

 

Theme Music: "Shostakovich," by Mucca Pazza.
