    Ep 269 | Scientist: STRESS from R*cism Is Killing Black People?

    In today’s episode, we look at new research that alleges the stress of racism in America is so bad that it actually causes negative health outcomes for black people. Then, a U.K. media watchdog says that the British media is getting more transphobic in its reporting by discussing issues that pertain to the political consequences of LGBT lobbying. Plus, the U.N. women’s group jumps on the useless intersectionality bandwagon, and lefty writers think the Virgin Mary promotes purity culture.

    Ep 268 | BASED Professor CANCELED by WOKE Students?

    In a situation that is perhaps reminiscent of Jordan Peterson's rise to fame, students at McGill University in Montreal are now demanding that another professor be punished. This time, it's because the professor in question, Philip Carl Salzman, simply espoused viewpoints contrary to the current progressive dogma.

    Ep 266 | DEATH PENALTY: Just Desserts or Grave Injustice?

    Ep 266 | DEATH PENALTY: Just Desserts or Grave Injustice?

    In this episode, Lauren explores the morality of the death penalty. Is it OK to carry out these sentences, and if so, why? Then, YouTube changes its policies again, ever decreasing the range of acceptable content. And Tulsi Gabbard is under fire again, this time for her proposal to clarify the laws around women's sports, which the trans community has not taken kindly to. Finally, DC Comics is releasing yet another super female hero, except instead of being a superhero, she's just an underachieving regular girl. How inspiring.

    Ep 264 | Matthew McConaughey BLASTED for SYMPATHIZING with Conservatives

    Ep 264 | Matthew McConaughey BLASTED for SYMPATHIZING with Conservatives

    Matthew McConaughey was recently lambasted when he appeared on Russell Brand's podcast and gave a very middle-of-the-lane political opinion, in which he rejected the far Left and far Right. However, many people on the Left have been acting as if he were a Nazi sympathizer. Can we just not get along? Wajahat Ali, an insufferable left-wing opinion writer for the New York Times, doesn't think so.
