Join us as we take the week off, but still find time to dive deep into the Small Business Administration, or as you know them, the government agency that gave all that PPP money to Yeezy, The Archdiocese of New York, Joseph Kushner Hebrew Academy, Forbes Media, and TGI Fridays. First up, a 'Buzzed History' on the history of the SBA, followed by an interview with the President and founder of the American Small Business League, Lloyd Chapman. The ASBL has been spearheading litigation to acquire information on small business utilization in government contracts, and acting as a voice for small business in Washington DC. The general aim of the ASBL is to prevent federal small business contracts from being diverted to large corporation. We get into what the ASBL does and its history, the current lawsuit the ASBL has against the SBA for transparency for the PPP loans, and a few conspiracy theories might carry some weight....but as always, we'll let you decide for yourself. Throw on your flippers and dive right in; the water is fine.

Don't worry, we didn't forget the topic of the week: Voting and Voter Fraud, which is chock full of information with J's 'Buzzed History', this week's 'Bonehead of the Week', and we give our new editor-in-chief of the forthcoming 'The Intermediary' a call to discuss this topic as well.
