This was all about homosexuals and adoption and discussed a recent case in the news. Professor Viktor Huliganov calls in to Fiona about the 34th minute and speaks until the end of this clip, in favour of giving adopted children parents bringing the characteristics of both sexes to the family, but before that at first you hear someone call Bob, stating himself to be a homosexual seeking to adopt with his partner, make his case in favour of allowing such applications for adoption.

Edited from the podcast of 10th March 2009. Which is where I am on the podcast catch up right now. It’s an open secret that “Connor” is actually none other than the Atlanta correspondent of “Downfall” fame doing a persona. Tommy gets very passionate and ranty, and although he has no callers in this show he lets himself go with the flow and we get some classic Boyd as a result.
Oddly I am actually listening only now to the audiobook of Atlas Shrugged after hearing it from Tommy Boyd 12 years previously. Its popularity is not dimishing and it is even more actual today than it ever was.

We’re discussing the whole area of racism and nationalism – is it possible for a person ever to be completely free of a trace of racism and nationalism? Isn’t it a trait too deeply ingrained in our tribal characters? Is it always necessarily bad to have preconceptions about other races and nations? What about racial or nationalist jokes – can they ever be acceptable?
