Episode 7 contains a serious discussion regarding the death penalty is framed by more humorous chit chat on topics like embroidered denim shirts, millenial’s 2 word response for the baby boomer generation, and one venue’s ban on cell phone use.

Join co-hosts Mark McNease and Rick Rose for our final Twist as a team. I'll be handing over the co-hosting duties to Qiuana Brown, hereafter known to you as Q. She was a guest on a recent podcast and she ROCKS! I had so much fun talking to her, and I know she's going to be awesome as Rick's new co-host on The Twist Podcast 2.0. They'll be blasting out their first episode very soon. Listen in as Rick and I, friends of over 30 years, podcasters for 8, and collaborators on many things together, take a bittersweet look at our past and our fabulous futures. And while we're at it, here's my final quote for the show: "So, Donald Trump, who just in the past two days refused to visit Denmark because it wouldn’t sell Greenland, tossed an anti-Semitic canard out to see how it landed on American Jews, retweeted a conspiracy theorist who claims Trump is the king of the Jews, reversed himself on gun policy and payroll taxes, and mulled ending birthright citizenship by way of executive order, just keeps on trucking. No check in sight. Don McGahn is not going to do anything to stop him, Congress is not going to do anything to stop him, Senate Republicans are not going to do anything to stop him, and Sean Spicer is on Dancing With the Stars. Cold comfort perhaps, but if you don’t feel that you are losing your damn mind, something would be profoundly wrong with you. We are all doing too much. And we are all also not doing enough. And there is nothing wrong with you, beyond being a human being in categorically insane times." Dahlia Lithwick, Slate
