The Republican healthcare plan is in trouble, but it's not dead yet. Dan Savage, Rich Smith, and Eli Sanders talk about how to keep pushing back against Trumpcare over the Fourth of July recess, when your Senators will be back home. After that: how to survive in a conservative alt-reality that's getting a little too real. And finally, two controversies that involve the gay pride flag. In Philadelphia, the iconic symbol of gay liberation has been revised to include black and brown stripes. And in Chicago recently, a number of Jewish lesbians were asked to leave a dyke march because their pride flags had Jewish stars on them. Organizers said the Jewish lesbians' pride flags were too triggering. Plus, as always, the music of Ahamefule J. Oluo.
This week, Dan Savage, Eli Sanders, and Rich Smith talk about the Comey hearing and then dissect a notable new poll finding: more Americans now want Donald Trump impeached than support his job performance! After that, a battle royale over the recent unrest at The Evergreen State College, which is being held up nationally as the latest example of liberal campus intolerance and the rise of mob “discourse.” Finally, last week’s episode was apparently a triumphant one for Rich Smith: one caller believes Rich was, “for the first time,” correct about something last week, and another caller confesses to a “voice crush” on Rich and asks Rich to read him a poem. Will Rich comply? Plus, as always, the music of Ahamefule J. Oluo.
