Matt Ruby and Rex Sorgatz bring their new segment back to the podcast: Bullsh**t or Legit? They dive into topics that have churned up misinformation and determine whether they believe the underlying story or conflict is legit or, in fact, bullshit. This week, they discuss whether we have entered the season of the grifter and a new age of satire.
Also, Jacqueline Soller and J. McVay discuss the newly released movie, Izzy Gets The F*ck Across Town, directed by Christian Papierniak and starring Mackenzie Davis, Alia Shawkat, Haley Joel Osment, Carrie Coon, and Lakeith Stanfield.
Along the way, we’ll also hear from Radio Dispatch’s John Knefel with his take on the children being held hostage by the Trump administration as part of their bid to enact tougher immigration policies; we’ll hear from a man named Matt about his first job as a DJ; and we’ll take an exclusive early listen to a performance by Trace Mountains, from an episode of BTR Live Studio set to be released next week.
Music composed by and show edited by Hansdale Hsu.
