  • Jon talks with (very charming, very British) BBC foreign correspondent Gabriel Gatehouse about his work covering the U.S. elections—which turned into reporting on QAnon, because what’s an election without a global cabal of blood-drinking billionaires? Jon is also joined by writers Kris Acimovic and Robby Slowik to discuss their favorite conspiracy theories, and maybe start some new ones.

  • You've probably heard that inflation is getting worse—and not just from your grandpa who remembers when soda cost a nickel and movies were movies. Jon talks with Thomas Hoenig, former president and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, about how the Fed has destroyed everything we hold dear. Jon is joined by staff writers Alexa Loftus and Kasaun Wilson to discuss the news of the week, including Rand Paul’s TV subscriptions and the gymnastic abilities of skunks.

  • Domestic violence is a predictor for gun violence, yet we have a problem enforcing laws that strip firearms from domestic abusers. Jon talks with head writer Chelsea Devantez about her experiences with these issues, possible solutions...and also, somehow, puppet TV shows from the '70s. Jon then talks with bounce musician Big Freedia about her documentary, Freedia Got a Gun, and how gun violence has affected her hometown of New Orleans.
