Hollywood, baby! Home of rich celebrities, infuriating traffic and the systemic suppression of marginalized voices. We’ll discuss Tinseltown’s history of government censorship, the secret motivations of Candace Owens, and we’ll even meet an audience member who hasn’t seen Ghostbusters or The Dark Knight. Nicole Byer, Hannah Hart, and Tre’Vell Anderson join Lovett to figure out whether L.A. really is a liberal La La Land, or if there might be some conservatism hidden deep under the La Brea Tar Pits. City Of Staaaaaaaaars!
Well it’s all out in the open now, huh? Trump walks back his Helsinki walk back. ICE is younger than Monster Energy Drink. Joe Lieberman is terrible. Republicans meekly criticize a disloyal President. And Air Force One is going to be insanely ugly unless Boeing steps up. Jon is joined by comedians Kiran Deol, Dani Fernandez, Ben Sawyer and Mitra Jouhari to break down the week’s news and enter the national debate over double negatives.
House Republicans set a trap for Mueller and then fall into it themselves. Trump makes his SCOTUS pick from a sleazy menu and then heads off to NATO to say whatever pops into his head. Fox debates whether women should be worried about their bodily autonomy. And Starbucks is finding new ways to get us to pay for milk. Professor Melina Abdullah and comedians Megan Gailey and Kate Willett join Jon to break down the week's news in a week with a LOT of news.
Jon joins Jon Favreau and Dan Pfieffer in-studio to talk through the latest developments on immigration, SCOTUS, and the growing outrage of Democratic voters. Then Jon is joined by Tawny Newsome, Jose Antonio Vargas, and Molly Lambert to commiserate and discuss pre-existing conditions, "farm to fork" restaurants, the Olympics, and so much more. Happy 4th of July!
Kennedy gets out. Ocasio-Cortez gets votes. Nazis get retweets. And we all get sick of bad surprises. Guy Branum, Taz Ahmed, and Adam Lustick join Jon to discuss the week’s news, Marco Rubio’s twitter, Pepsi cinema, and the hearty genes of Ashkenazi jurists.
Recorded live at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Jon is joined by Symone Sanders, Liliana Segura, and Benjamin Sawyer to break down the week's news. Trump shifts, but families are still separated. Fox & Friends gets a little too honest about who deserves compassion. Kellyanne Conway faces an unlikely critic. And sometimes it's hard to tell the difference between a Trump stooge and a villain from X-Men. Anyway, awful week, but a great show at an amazing place.
