This week, Matt Ruby joins us for another edition of Twitter Moments, in which we talk about these topics that were trending on Twitter as we recorded:
1) Adult film star Stormy Daniels alleges she slept with Trump, In Touch reports
2)Boyfriend’s reaction to this selfie was extra and people are loving it
3)Eric Trump says his father is the ‘least racist’ person he knows
4)Peanut Butter on Hot Dogs
We’re also joined by Jacqueline Soller to discuss the recently released movie, The Post, directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks. Along the way, we’ll also hear from Radio Dispatch’s John Knefel with his thoughts on the recent scare in Hawaii when a mistaken alert went out warning of an imminent missile attack; we’ll hear from a woman named Kaitlyn, who told us about one of her most embarrassing memories; and we’ll take an exclusive early listen to a performance by by Brooklyn songsmith, Benjamin Cartel, from an episode of BTR Live Studio set to be released next week.
