Trump hires John Bolton, congratulates Putin, attacks Mueller, loses his lawyer, and confronts very detailed accounts of marital affairs and efforts to cover them up. Plus, young people lead a march against gun violence, Mark Zuckerberg defends Facebook on TV, and Cynthia Nixon it turns out is not the character she played on Sex and the City. Recorded live in DC, Symone Sanders, Wesley Lowery, and Mitra Jouhari join Jon to break down a week of news that somehow seems more packed with crazy than usual, if that’s possible.

Every Friday night, Jon and a panel of comedians, actors, journalists, and some of the many, many famous Friends of the Pod will break down the week’s biggest news and deal with whatever bullshit came flying over the transom in our broken, insane political nightmare factory. Plus it’s produced by a former head writer for The Office, Lee Eisenberg! So it’s got that kind of a vibe too. There will be rants! Games! Bad impressions! Quizzes! Dramatic Readings! Shouting at cable news clips! And everyone’s favorite: nuanced discussion!
