This week, we welcome back contributor Oriana Leckert and, for the first time, new contributor Alexander Augustyniak to discuss the abrupt firing of FBI Director James Comey, the most recent version of the American Health Care Act that was passed by the House, and Hulu’s prestige series adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale, starring Elisabeth Moss. Also, Charles Hinshaw returns to discuss the recently released movie, Guardians of The Galaxy, Vol. 2, directed by James Gunn and starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, and Kurt Russell. And along the way, we hear from Radio Dispatch’s John Knefel with his own take on the aforementioned AHCA passage in the House; we learn about a woman named Carol, who took a DNA test and found out a lot about members of her family she’d lost track of over the years, including her father, who left when she was nine years old; and we get an early listen to an exclusive performance by Fraidycat from an episode of BTR Live Studio set to be released next week.
Music composed by and show edited by Hansdale Hsu.
