Ep 420 - Candide, by Voltaire

Candide is a novella-length takedown of the idea that we are living in the best of all possible worlds, as ordained by God. These days it's hard to believe we need a whole book about this but it's pretty funny anyway?

Our new theme music was composed by Nick Lerangis.
