This week, we welcome back contributors Oriana Leckert and Matt Ruby to discuss the ongoing hearings in the Senate Intelligence Committee on possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign, including John Knefel’s take on President Trump. Is there a collusion in the “deep state” to take down the president and, if there is, is that a bad thing?

We also discuss the recent controversies surrounding Kathy Griffin and Bill Maher and their apologies in response to public outcry. Where is the proverbial line? “The line is: white dudes shouldn’t say the N-word.”

Also, Jacqueline Soller returns to discuss the new movie, It Comes At Night, directed by Trey Edward Shults and starring Joel Edgerton; and along the way we’ll hear from a woman named Yvonne, who shares a couple of her scariest stories from her time traveling alone as a woman; and we’ll take an exclusive early listen to a performance by The Moonlandingz from an episode of BTR Live Studio set to be released next week.
