2.16: Somebody's Going to Emergency, Somebody's Going to Jail (with Rob Lowe)

Sitting here in the darkness
I’ve gotta post the show
Somebody’s joining us this episode
Somebody named Rob Lowe
We found somebody to explain free trade
Cuz there is so muuuch we don’t knowwww
And we asked Aaron about the song…

It’s the West Wing Weekly (ooh-oo-oooh)
Aaron wrote us baaack!
It’s the West Wing Weekly (ooh-oo-oooh)
How f*$%ing cool is that?
It’s the West Wing Weekly (ooh-oo-oooh)
All the maps are wack
It’s the West Wing Weekly

We're joined by Rob Lowe (@RobLowe) to discuss this episode, which earned him an Emmy nomination. And we welcome back Ben Casselman (@bencasselman), chief economics writer for FiveThirtyEight, to give us some modern context for Toby's line, "Free trade stops wars." 

Ooh-oo-oooh!
