Evaluating Evidence: Trump Dossier Ep. 3 – Let the Smackdown Begin
Scott, Matt, and Glenn begin reading from the Trump Dossier. You know… Infant Smackdown style. The text is linked below if you want to read along. And don’t skip the easter egg at the end of this episode. Unless you just really really want to.
Evaluating Evidence: Deconstructing the Trump Dossier – Part 1
What is the difference between “fake news” and “real news?” What is the impact of “alternative facts?” Is there really anything to this buzzfeed-leaked Dossier about Trump’s alleged connections with Russia? What is believable? What is not believable? Scott takes religion out from under the microscope and replaces it with politics in this introduction to a new smackdown series for Infants on Thrones. More to come.
Infants, Immigration, and Captain EO
Who says you should avoid talking about politics and religion? Matt and Glenn interview Melinda “Mindy” Butler, an immigration attorney for The Florence Project in Arizona, to learn more about the three recent Executive Orders on immigration.
Matt and Tom sit down with Ryan McKnight and Privacy P Pratt (not his real name) to discuss General Authority pay stubs, the difference between mormon- and wiki- leaking, and leaks and leakers and just a bunch of leaking stuff in general. You’re in for a real treat (as opposed to urine for a real treat). Cuz details matter.
Matt and Glenn try (and maybe sorta momentarily succeed, we hope) to sift away all partisanship from conversations from this past crazy week and focus on the one unifying message that everyone should agree on. Lewd and derogatory male attitudes towards women can no longer be considered acceptable in our world. It’s about much more than politics now. It’s about our mothers, and daughters, and wives, and friends. It’s about improving our shared social morality. Positive words can have a measurable impact on the physical world. That isn’t just magical thinking. We’re hoping the words of this episode will add our small piece to this current critical mass to make this moment of awareness one that will transform our world and not be soon forgotten. And Matt shares a clip from the Simpsons.
Randy, John, and Heather welcome siblings Jimmy and Ben to talk about the End of the World and to laugh and giggle. A lot. It’s a smart, funny discussion that will have you hoarding wheat, powdered milk, and liquor in no time. Enjoy.
