Fresh off their failed attempt to repeal Obamacare, Republicans are chugging ahead with a whole bunch of other terrible ideas. For starters, taking away your internet privacy and rolling back environmental regulations meant to stave off global warming. Dan Savage, Rich Smith, and Eli Sanders talk about all that, as well as the stalled out Russia-Trump investigation in the US House, and then dive into something a little more uplifting: the special election in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District. Democrat Jon Ossoff, the 30-year-old who’s captured liberals’ hopes, seems to really have a chance. Maybe. We discuss. And finally, the books we’re reading and the movie Dan’s watching to escape all this madness. Plus, as always, the music of Ahamefule J. Oluo.
