The Weeds: Retirement age, terrorism, and C-sections

This week, Ezra Klein, Matt Yglesias, and I discuss the flaws in DC elites' favorite idea, raising the retirement age; consider how to respond to terrorist attacks (with a bonus digression about 19th-century anarchist assassins); and debate a striking new data set that shows the baffling variation in how frequently different hospitals perform C-sections rather than traditional childbirths.

As always, you can subscribe to The Weeds on iTunes, rate us there, and reach out with feedback at A small programming note: The Weeds will be off for the Thanksgiving next week, and will return a week from Friday, on December 4. Enjoy the holiday!
