Ryan retires, Comey speaks, Rosenstein survives, Zuckerberg testifies, Cohen is screwed (and maybe did go to Prague?), Hannity loses his mind, and, late Friday, Trump launches military strikes in Syria. Erin Gloria Ryan, comedian Tien Tran, and activist Charlene Carruthers join Jon to break down an extraordinary week, recorded live at the Chicago Theatre. Also, pizza is debated and Malort is consumed.
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!
