Dream Government: A More Perfect Union

During this episode: 
Kevin and Jaime dream about a better way to govern, to create a more perfect union. In a "dream" episode, there are no barriers to creating a new "ideal." This week, they discuss what works for our government, what doesn't, and what steps they would take to make US government more functional.  

Their expertise in regards to governance? Very little, in fact they were fairly certain a governor just kept company vehicles throttled.
Their qualifications to discuss the topic? Random life experience and caffeination during recording sessions.
Basically, anything they discuss? Don’t take their word for it - but they hope you enjoy the show!
