Ari and Matt look back on a year of podcasts and a year of heroism.
Ari and Matt discuss the heroism shown at Sandy Hook Elementary School and discuss the difficulties of recommending heroism as a course of action when it hits close to home.
Ari and Matt are joined by Michelle and Thorsten Werning from Bonn, Germany. Michelle shares her experiences presenting Matt’s program in Germany and France as well as bringing up boys in a military family. Thorsten shares his thoughts on heroism as a member of the Navy helicopter rescue group and as a German.
Ari and Matt ask why there was a big empty space next to Ki Suk Han as he struggled for his life. The New York Post and R. Umar Abassi have been cast as the villains, but why do we have this same discussion about bystanders every time an incident like this happens? Why aren’t we doing something about it now so that next time there aren’t any bystanders?
