Each week hosts Dave Anthony and Josh Olson watch and then discuss an episode of The West Wing.
Red Haven's On Fire w/Special Guest Wyatt Cenac
Slow news week. Not much to cover. Wyatt stopped by to talk sports.
The California 47th w/Special Guest Aaron Thorpe
The gang flies to Orange County to help Rob Lowe exit the show gracefully. Plus, FUCK THE FRENCH, AM I RIGHT? THOSE GODDAM COWARDS!!!!
Inauguration Pt 2: Over There w/Special Guest Daniel Bessner
Daniel Bessner is back for Inauguration Part 2, as we dive deep, deep, deep into Aaron Sorkin's rewrite of Rwandan genocide.
Inauguration Part 1 w/Special Guest Daniel Bessner
We're joined by Bernie Sanders' foreign policy advisor to explain why Aaron Sorkin's handling of the genocide in Rwanda is less brilliant than you might think. Plus - Jed Bartlet, Contra-lover!
The Long Goodbye/Past Tense
In the middle of recording, a transporter accident sends Josh and Dave into a mirror universe where they find themselves hosts of The Star Trek Thing, a podcast in which Josh & Dave break down every episode of every Star Trek series and dissect them for their good politics. In this world, we're all still at brunch.
Guns Not Butter w/Special Guest Rob Rousseau
The gang deals with an important foreign aid bill that will go nowhere, a situation with a soldier on foodstamps that will go nowhere, and the fact that voters are stupid, and only people who can read read the New York Times.
Hilarious, educational, cathartic
I love these guys, I love this podcast, every bit as much as I hate The West Wing. (Note: that’s saying a lot.) I’d only ever seen one or two episodes of tww before, but heard it referred to (eg on Chapo Trap House) often enough that I had an idea what it would be like. Now I’ve been lent the boxed set by a well-meaning friend for quarantine bingeing, and in combination with this podcast, well, I’m having a weirdly great time. Josh, Dave: Thank you for your service!
