This week, we welcome back contributor Matt Ruby and, for the first time, new contributor Ester Steinberg to discuss the particulars of a potential Mike Pence presidency should Donald Trump somehow end up out of office and the rise of political perspectives and criticism among late night television talk show hosts. Also, Charles Hinshaw returns to discuss the new movie, Alien: Covenant, directed by Ridley Scott; and along the way we hear from Radio Dispatch‘s John Knefel, who answers the question, “Who Is Robert Mueller;” we hear from a woman named Alice, who tells us about her first crush; and we take an exclusive early listen to a performance by Emel from an episode of BTR Live Studio set to be released next week.
Music composed by and show edited by Hansdale Hsu.
