“Bulletproof, slow, and full of wine” is how The New York Times describes a very special train that Kim Jong Un likes to ride around in, and Dan Savage, Rich Smith, and Eli Sanders all admit—it sounds kinda nice. But more importantly: there’s the Stormy Daniels interview on 60 Minutes to discuss, the new US Census citizenship requirement to freak out about, and a very important question to ponder: Should we just flat-out repeal the Second Amendment? A former US Supreme Court Justice says we should, but is his argument just a gift to Trump and the frothing, paranoid right ahead of the midterms? After all that, Chase Burns is back to discuss what we all found when we downloaded our own Facebook data. When was the last time Eli got “poked”? What debt-related ad did Rich get caught clicking on? Whose contact information was given to PediaSure? And how do we feel about all this??? All is revealed. (Along with an update on the latest Facebook data scandal developments.) Finally, Katie Herzog watched this week’s insanely popular reboot of Roseanne and also spent a very long time with Oregon cult members while watching Netflix’s Wild, Wild Country. She tells Dan and Eli all about it. Plus, as always, the music of Ahamefule J. Oluo!
So, wait a minute: If Stormy Daniels wins her fight against Trump’s lawyers, and she releases Trump sexts and (gasp) dick pics to the world, does that constitute… revenge porn? Dan Savage, Rich Smith, and Eli Sanders consider this urgent question, and then they dive into the lessons of the recent primary elections in Illinois and hear from a pro-life Democrat in Pennsylvania who wants to be accepted by the party’s pro-choice members. Plus, Rich Smith asks: Why, amid all the many Trump outrages, are we not more outraged by the Trump administration’s flagrant corruption? After that, social media expert Chase Burns is back to help Dan and Eli think about the scandal involving Facebook data and the Trump campaign’s data firm, Cambridge Analytica. Should we #DeleteFacebook? Finally, Katie Herzog addresses the furor over her rant on last week’s show about Emotional Support Animals in general, and dogs on planes in particular. Katie reads an excerpt from one of many comments posted in our Blabbermouth Podcast Facebook group about this incendiary issue, and Dan—shockingly—doesn’t hold back about his dog feelings. Plus, what Rich is watching, what Dan is reading, and why Eli will be at his local March for Our Lives on Saturday, March 24—and why you should be, too. And, as always, the music of Ahamefule J. Oluo!
