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!
Trump's State of the Union never happened. Fox News is screaming about socialism. And Senator Kirsten Gillibrand joins Jon on stage at the Anthem in Washington, DC to discuss her 2020 campaign, health care, and the ugly scandals unfolding in Virginia. She also becomes the first presidential candidate to face the "Queen for a Day" gauntlet on Lovett or Leave It. Alex Wagner, Alyssa Mastromonaco, and Akilah Hughes are here to help break down the week's news and rant about Marie Kondo and The Bachelor. This week was a mess.
Adam Schiff, Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, discusses Mueller, Trump's feud with intelligence officials, impeachment, congressional oversight, and vegan hamburgers. Plus Tawny Newsome and Naomi Ekperigin are back to break down the week's news on Howard Schultz, health care, and Netflix shows about serial killers. Then the panel quizzes the audience on Trump's approach to Venezuela. Sports podcaster Brandon Newman stops by to quiz Lovett on the game of football. And I still don't care that Starbucks burns the beans.
And we're back! Jon Favreau and Tommy Vietor join Lovett to cover Trump's surrender on the shutdown and Roger Stone’s indictment. Then Zoe Lister-Jones, Mitra Jouhari, Andrew Ti, and D’Arcy Carden join to talk about Pelosi versus Trump, the nationwide teacher strikes, those MAGA teens, dueling Fyre Festival documentaries, Rudy Giuliani’s emo streak, and more. Season 3! Here we go.
Well, he came, he sniffed, he lied. Lovett, Jon Favreau, Tommy Vietor, and Julissa Arce play "OK, Stop" through Trump's absurd waste of an oval office address. Also, Lovett or Leave It is going on tour! Get your tickets now: crooked.com/events
2018 ends as it began: with a looming government shutdown, chaos in the White House, and Paul Ryan hiding behind a potted plant. In a special holiday episode, we highlight some of our favorite moments from Lovett or Leave It this year, from Fox’s take on Colin Kaepernick, to Ijeoma Oluo’s take on #MeToo, to Emily Heller’s take on shark thieves, and Lovett’s take on the food pyramid, the downfall of Hooters, and policies that force people to show up at work when they’re sick, and more.
