    Episode 228: Trumpian Missile Crisis

    Episode 228: Trumpian Missile Crisis

    Dan Savage, Eli Sanders, and Rich Smith talk about President Trump’s standoff with Iran, which escalated this week when Trump ordered a missile strike that killed a top Iranian general. Iran then fired missiles at US bases in Iraq in response, and now—at least for the moment—Trump is talking peace. After that, a question: Would the Donald Trump we know create a new round of Middle East conflict just to distract from impeachment? Katie Herzog helps Dan and Eli with an answer, and then she explains why, with the Iowa caucuses fast approaching, she’s turned on Elizabeth Warren. Finally, Jasmyne Keimig and Chase Burns talk about what happened at the Golden Globes, what it all means, and what errors and omissions need to be corrected before February's Oscars. Plus, as always, the music of Ahamefule J. Oluo.

    Episode 227: Impeached? Check!

    Episode 227: Impeached? Check!

    Dan Savage, Eli Sanders, and Katie Herzog mark Impeachment Day with an examination of Trump’s deranged letter to Nancy Pelosi, an appreciation for Pelosi’s coolness under fire, and of course some angst about whether this will actually help Trump get re-elected in 2020. After that, with yet another Democratic debate coming up (this one, mercifully, including only 7 candidates), Rich Smith helps Dan and Eli understand why young Pete Buttigieg is so loathed by the young, liberal Twitterati. Finally, Chase Burns gets riled up about the new movie Cats and Jasmyne Keimig explains why she loved Little Women (and why it’s not just for women, dudes). Plus, as always, the music of Ahamefule J. Oluo.
