Plus, Donald Trump's Truth Social is producing an embarrassingly small amount of money, new inflation numbers, the issue of crime, and Sonny, subbing in for Tim, gives his opposing thoughts on the latest Samuel Alito/SCOTUS drama.

Tim, I can NEVER remember the name of this pod. I listened to the New Orleans live and agree. I vote for a rebrand.

I came here looking for Tim Miller content. I can only say, RUN TIM!!! Get as far away from these old people (I, too, am old) as you can because their taint will totally degrade your brand. The lady is a petulant scold who has a very perverse notion of propriety. (Who cares what Sen. Fetterman wears?!) The dude lost me when he started making excuses for BoBo Boebert and the theater fondle. I like Tim best on the Bulwark pod with Charlie. Hope he's there more often.

Holy hell... I would be mortified if my child supported Trump. I would be incredibly depressed wondering what I did wrong.

Funny how JVL had no idea his "BFF" Tim had been arrested back in the day.

What's the story behind the personal gym trainer who has a story somewhat akin to this tale. And are we to assume no homosexual activity took place to Falwell and Johan Carlos?

Emmm Arrrrr

I love this pod. I so appreciate the humility you all exhibit. I'm a crazy liberal, and I feel like you're a moderating influence on me.
