Will is joined by legendary author Alan Moore to discuss evil architecture, magic & political power, fate & free will, and the enduring appeal of Lovecraft.

I am still thinking about the shape of the universe being like a football. And also I've had a weird apprehension of television in regards to democracy and referenda, because it seems very easy to manipulate the results of a vote by dumping money to change 4% of the public's opinion.
