Counterfactual analysis was a new idea for Justin in this episode - Stephen explains how he used that approach to consider what might have happened if international relations actors had been able to excercise interculturally competent adaptive frameshifting. Justin asks Stephen how far the implications of his project carry, and Stephen discusses the limits of research programs like this.

The guys also talk about highlights, lowlights, and insights for the week. Justin reflects on the time of the year and Stephen considers the ways in which a 1,000 piece puzzle reflects his own experience of the last several months.
