This clip is from an episode of the Planet Money podcast, which is a very interesting podcast about economics. This episode is all about how to divide things fairly.
For context, the speaker is talking about a common form of decision making when it is impossible to work out a fair way of sharing something.

The phrasal verb to deal with sth means to do something in order solve a problem. e.g. I’m too tired to tidy up tonight. I’ll deal with it tomorrow morning.
