    9.21.21- No Takeaways

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. 9/11 is over, but you can still buy Lila’s book, Some Kids Left Behind.

    2. The main correct takeaway from the CA Recall is that money was wasted and there’s nothing to learn from it.

    3. Everybody is trying to leave the Senate

    4. Losing statewide office once is one of the ways to get yourself onto a ballot for statewide office in Texas.

    5. Infrastructure season update: lol.

    6. Joe Biden, just like last time he was in the Executive Branch, is not afraid to deport you.

    8/30/21 - Pandemic of the Radio Hosts

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Lila’s book is in stores now. You should buy it.

    2. Hurricane Ida: Just the kind of disrespectful hurricane that chose to come in the middle of a pandemic as opposed to...literally any other time.

    3. Recall update: Idiots abound. Vote no.

    4. No one wants everyone to be evicted from their homes more than SCOTUS.

    5. Covid is now a pandemic of the radio hosts

    6. Infrastructure Season: Everybody has claimed victory and yet nobody has won anything yet.

    8/22/21 - Vote NO

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Lila’s book comes out on TUESDAY AUGUST 24th. Get a copy.

    2. If you’re in California, you already have your ballot and you only have to answer one question so voting NO on the recall couldn’t be easier.

    3. Prop 22 is as illegal and ridiculous as it sounded.

    4. Say it with us: Bush officials are not experts in Afghanistan, they are the opposite of that.

    5. The COVID booster shots are coming.

    6. Which is a good thing because there’s a post-vax Senate outbreak is in process.

    6/28/21 - Ennui on the Funeral Crashing Circuit

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. We’re starting with Britney. For the clicks.

    2. The votes are in in the New York City mayor’s race. So we’ll tell you who won in one to two months!

    3. Infrastructure. We’ve got nothing left on this one.

    4. SCOTUS went so far to the dark side that Clarence Thomas had to speak up.

    5. Don’t worry, you can still go to prison for longer than Derek Chauvin if you put your mind to it. Or if you just happen to be Black.

    6. Apparently the funeral crashing circuit got boring.
