Paul Scheer (check out his new podcast! https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/unspooled/id1381507437?mt=2), Amanda Seales, and labor activist Saru Jayaraman join Jon to break down the week’s news. Plus we do like 30 seconds on Laurel/Yanni.

Special guests: Dr. Jennifer Golbeck, Ashley Feinberg, and Deray Mckesson in Baltimore and Dr. Robert Bond, Ana Marie Cox, and Ziwe Fumudoh in Columbus. Like, fave, rate, poke, survive.
