Young people change the gun debate in a matter of days. NRA talking points ring hollow at a CNN town hall. Black Panther helps register voters. And Jon demands a gay superhero. A guy with laser eyes and a boyfriend. What’s the problem? Mayor Michael Tubbs of Stockton, Black Lives Matter activist Alicia Garza, and comedian Jenny Yang join Jon in Sacramento to break down the week’s news and mock Marco Rubio because he deserves it.
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! Check out more Lovett or Leave It episodes!
