    Bidentity Crisis

    Bidentity Crisis

    Trump is purging, Bernie is surging, Amy is emerging, Bloomberg is splurging, and Biden is... not doing so well.
    Larry Wilmore and Kara Brown join to cover the primary as it heads to Nevada and South Carolina. Up and coming journalist Ronan Farrow stops by to discuss revelations in his podcast AND relationship. Plus similarities between Nixon and Trump, life on a coronavirus cruise, and the power of Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union's example. What a week.

    New Hampshire, Don't F*ck This Up

    New Hampshire, Don't F*ck This Up

    What a week. What a MESS. Pete's "undeniable victory" in Iowa becomes less undeniable and Senate Republicans (except for Mitt who we LOVE now) tell Trump he's above the law. Emily Heller joins to break down the Democratic debate in New Hampshire. Franklin Leonard talks about this Sunday's Oscars and how Hollywood is (and isn't) changing. And Louis Virtel's savant-like Oscar trivia skills are put to the TEST. Plus we manage to talk about Baby Nut, Hotel Lighting, Dua Lipa, and Netflix autoplay. At some point Jon sat on the floor and talked about going to the nurse's office in elementary school. Anyway it's been a week. Hope everyone took lots of pictures because that was the LAST Iowa caucus.

    Iowa, Don't F*ck This Up

    Iowa, Don't F*ck This Up

    Republicans conspire to block witnesses and Iowans get ready to caucus like the country depends on it. LIVE from Iowa City, Jon is joined by filmmaker and activist Michael Moore, Iowa state auditor Rob Sand, Cedar Rapids Gazette columnist Lyn Lenz, and Linn County Supervisor Stacey Walker.
    They cover the latest on the trial, the primaries, and their perspective on how campaigns are faring on the ground. And we make time for Super Bowl ads, Brad Pitt's looks "hurting" his Oscar chances, and the difference between hot dish and casserole.

    The Rural Jurors

    The Rural Jurors

    The impeachment trial begins: Adam Schiff and the House managers make their case and Republican Senators both demand and refuse to allow new evidence. Florida's Republicans are undermining Amendment 4 which restores the vote to those convicted of felonies. Plus C-Span's production values are just OK and it's time we have an honest conversation about organic peanut butter. Aida Osman and Sam Pancake join to help break down the week's news and just sit around sharing memories of Mr. Peanut and really focus on making this a celebration of his life.

Plus Kara Swisher on Facebook and Little Women, Mitra Jouhari on Space Travel, and Damon Young on Joker's 11 Oscar nominations. First they cancel The OA. Now Mindhunter? Netflix, you season three thief!
