The sociopolitical landscape of the day is a minefield of cognitive dissonance, intellectual laziness, and disingenuous actors. Listen in weekly as four dudes navigate the perilous state of national discourse and laugh at current events. Because if you don't laugh you'll cry.
Let's Relitigate Some Cancel Cases
The guys take a look at some prominent examples of cancellations over the last couple of years - from R Kelly to Jessie Smollet to Louis CK, and have a conversation about the effectiveness of the cancellations in question and whether or not the crime justified the time.
Tuesday Dispatch: The Great Barrington Debacle, Hunter Biden's Emails, Schrodinger's Vote
The boys are back to break down the news of the week, including Nancy Pelosi getting pumped up for UFC 254 by exchanging blows with Wolf Blitzer, Trump's latest twitter conspiracy spiral, and the media's predictable yet disillusioning response to The Great Barrington Declaration.
Internet Hate Machine
The guys take a deep dive in to the evolution of mainstream internet culture, its origins in the primordial ooze of 4chan, and try to examine what happens when a subculture drenched in irony and absurdism meets a more earnest general population.
Tuesday Dispatch: Trump's Taliban Endorsement, Biden Court Packing, Priests be F****n
Find a comfy branch and put your wings up while the guys catch up on this week's current events. We've got stories on Trump's Taliban endorsement, another scientific journal endorsing Joe Biden, a priest and two dominatrix's walk into a church, and much more.
Move over Hot Ones -- the Parrot's Perch is coming with the spice. The guys put forth some truly insane hot takes and then try to convince each other - and you - that they're actually reasonable. Was Hitler good for civil rights? Was Judas really the good guy? Is Donald Trump not actually more racist than Joe Biden?
*FIXED* Tuesday Dispatch: Trump Has Covid, #WetBuzzardFart?, Claudia Conway
Just like the Republican Party, this week's dispatch gets absolutely dominated by Covid-19. The guys break down a bunch of angles on the Trump diagnosis. Is he actually playing 4D chess? Did the America writer's room finally jump the shark? Is someone going to make Claudia Conway "disappear"? Keep Squawkin' in the Free World.

Best podcast you haven’t heard of...yet.
These guys truly embody the ideas that they convey and aren’t just merely passing along information. Their conversations are fluid, humorous, thought provoking, and objective.
I’m 3 episodes in and I’ve enjoyed every bit of it. My attitude and outlook have been so negative and misguided lately that I really need to hear factual point of views. I really appreciate the way you lay out current events and popular theories in ways I can’t so I get the full picture. Side note: I love that the Covina parrots are behind the name! I thought it had something to do with misguided people “parroting” misinformation.. 😆😆 Keep it up guys!
Looking forward to more!
There are obviously some growing pains in this, but for a new podcast, I think they’ve done a really great job. I appreciate that they don’t necessarily agree with each other, but are able to talk about those points of view without fully shutting each other out. They are genuine in their opinions and obviously educated. There have been speeches made by the loudest guy which have given me chills. I’ve seen some ignorance within myself, some selfish actions in regards to people who have differing opinions than me, and I will do better to keep dialogue open, but not let hate spew. Can’t wait for more content!
