    The Trump Assassination Attempt: Five scenarios for what might happen now

    The Trump Assassination Attempt: Five scenarios for what might happen now

    Hello!
    Today, we talk about what exactly is going to happen to the country just a few days after the assassination attempt of Donald Trump and whether this will go down as a turning point in the country’s history or if it might just be quickly forgotten as everyone goes deep into RNC and JD Vance talk. Jay shares his very stupid thoughts on whether Donald Trump might have seen God after a near-death experience and the chances that he might be a changed man and Tyler makes both the best case and worst case for what will happen with the Trump/Vance ticket.
    Enjoy!

    Should Biden stay or should he go? Jay and Tyler DEBATE

    Should Biden stay or should he go? Jay and Tyler DEBATE

    Hello!
    This week, we are back from vacation and catching up on the only story in America, which is the mental fitness of the President. Jay is on Team “The Democrats are probably too incompetent and divided to actually run a difference candidate in time and so it might actually make sense for them to just get behind Biden and hope everything breaks correctly and they draw to flush against Trump’s made two pair.” Tyler is on Team “It is fundamentally bad to have a President who cannot do normal things and needs 12 days to recover from an international flight. Also what are we doing here?!” WE DEBATE.

    The misunderstood 1990s, LA Riots, and the triumph of the Paleoconservatives with John Ganz

    The misunderstood 1990s, LA Riots, and the triumph of the Paleoconservatives with John Ganz

    Hello!
    Today, we are extremely excited to have on John Ganz, author of the new book When the Clock Broke, a retelling of the 1990s that touches on politics, music, television, and the history of right wing cranks who ultimately would become a prelude for Trumpism. There’s a ton that we discuss: The LA riots, Pat Buchanan, Murray Rothbard, Sister Souljah, and much more. If you’re interested in how the fringe elements of the 1990s became much less fringe by 2016, this is a wonderfully written and engaging history that not only feels relevant and prescient, but also funny and alive.
    QUICK NOTE: We will not have an episode next week bc of vacation stuff but we will have a lot of announcements about the show throughout July so please stay tuned.

    Dimension Apple, Biden's Age, and Modern Tiger Parenting

    Hello!
    Today we’re doing a Pardon The Interruption-styled show in which we go down a list of topics. We’re experimenting a bit with format these days and so please let us know if this more rapid fire version works for you!
    Today’s topics:
    Hobby Horsing as a sport?
    Dimension Apple from a great post from the Read Max Substack.
    Tiger parenting in 2024. Are you a crazy sports parent or a math/violin parent? Is there a difference?
    Joe Biden’s age and the promise of President Harris.
    The jumps in this are incredible fwiw.
    Just a warning: We will be taking July 4th weekend off but should have a fun post for you that week. Enjoy!

    VICTIM, a hilarious new novel by Andrew Boryga. Plus Caitlin Clark takes and James by Percival Everett

    VICTIM, a hilarious new novel by Andrew Boryga. Plus Caitlin Clark takes and James by Percival Everett

    Hello!
    Today, we have a great conversation with Andrew Boryga, the author of VICTIM, a truly subversive and funny novel about a young writer who hustles his way through the media world by just giving it what it wants from him: oppression stories, identity trauma tales, and a lot of embellishment.
    We also talk about Caitlin Clark (Jay tries to do a sports talk segment) and the great novel JAMES by Percival Everett. Do books like JAMES and VICTIM signal some change in the way that the publishing industry thinks about race and what stories it might want to promote right now?
    ALSO WE ARE NOW ON YOUTUBE. Please take the time to check out our video stuff and subscribe if you can.
    Enjoy!

    What are Children For? A talk with Anastasia Berg and Rachel Wiseman about their new book

    What are Children For? A talk with Anastasia Berg and Rachel Wiseman about their new book

    Hello!
    Today’s show is a talk about an exciting new book by Anastasia Berg and Rachel Wiseman titled “What are Children For?” (Release date: June 11) We talked about “slow love,” the common complaint from millennials that they do not have enough financial stability to start families, the ambivalent mother narrative, and something right in Tyler’s wheelhouse: eco apocalypse fiction. Why is the United States birthrate declining? Why are middle and upper-middle class women waiting longer to have children, or, in many cases, forgoing the decision altogether? We discuss all that with Anastasia and Rachel.
    If you’d like a little preview of the show, we have it up on our BRAND NEW YOUTUBE PAGE. (PLEASE SUBSCRIBE AND LIKE!)
    Just as a reminder: Tyler and I will be rolling out a bunch of new features in July for paid subscribers but for now, please bear with us we add video to our show.
    Thank you!

Mthreegan ,

Fun show

Tammy and Jay cover topics most media does not and with more nuance. The recent polyamory episode was weird: polyamory is basically mainstream in queer communities and with it is a focus on communication, honesty and non-hierarchical structures. It’s rooted in politics! I think what you’re actually annoyed with it bourgeois people co-opting polyamory and making it about personal growth. I mean, what did you expect?

Can't get a car2go ,

Ok

Thankful for some of the more informed and thoughtful guests on the show. (like Vincent Bevins), but it can get really tiring to listen to liberal corporate media, journalists naval gaze from the perspective of their own niche occupation and class all the time.

Left Plain ,

Tyler Austin Harper: Midwit

You cannot imagine a bigger downgrade than going from Andy B. Liu to Tyler Austin Harper.
