19 - IATSE, Entertainment Unions, and the Hollywood Blacklist
With a potential looming strike from the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE) over the absolutely bogus working conditions in Hollywood, we thought it would be a perfect time to explore the history of unionization in Tinseltown, as well as the intimately related story of the Hollywood Blacklist.
Follow @ia_stories on Instagram for harrowing detail into why we support IATSE and their workers in their current efforts.
18 - War in Afghanistan
After twenty long years and four different presidential administrations, the US war in Afghanistan is finally over. In this new episode, Kyle and Lucia get deep into the morass to discuss exactly what happened in Afghanistan, from the British invasion (not that one) a hundred years ago to the Soviet-Afghan War of the 1980s all the way to today (technically yesterday).

Gleep my glorp!
As promised, folks, we're continuing our coverage of the recent UFO news! We go over the government UFO report as well as the hotly anticipated "more fun" stories –– about PRESIDENTS hanging out with ALIENS. It's a wild ride to the stars, so don't miss this wrap-up of our UFO coverage!

16 - UFOs
The truth is...right here!?
It's been a minute but we're back, and we're digging into the hottest news story this side of Saturn's rings –– UFOs! With the New York Times and the Department of Defense rolling out new disclosures seemingly by the day, we figure it's about time we got our Mulder and Mulderina on and dug into the truth.
Plus: We got married! And we talk about it!
15 – Filibuster
Filibustin' makes me feel good!
Hello friends and enemies, on the new ChickenPod we're getting into the history of the filibuster! We talk about how and why the filibuster is a Jim Crow relic, why there is a movement to abolish it, and how it got to be what it is today.
Plus: the White House Easter egg roll, an explanation of the end of Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, and Kyle saying "grind to a halt" way too many times!
Fun Chats About Important Stuff
Kyle and Lucia inform and entertain. The topics are important, the banter is silly, and the vibe is chill.
My new favorite podcast
Kyle and Lucia are wonderfully funny (and the perfect amount of horny) and really explain politics in a fun and easy to digest way. Great comedic timing from both of them. They are both sweet angels. I wish I could give it more than 5 stars, it’s just that good.
