Matt and writer / activist Sarah Schulman discuss Sarah’s controversial book ‘Conflict Is Not Abuse’ and its ideas, which turns into a larger talk about why we have an inclination to blame others instead of ourselves, the ways we hide behind modern technology, and ultimate-victim Donald Trump’s constant bitching about how he’s being harassed— even though he’s the most powerful man in the world.

Travis View | QAnon: Matt’s Favorite Thing Of All Time
4862

Expert QAnon Researcher Travis View joins Matt for a detailed discussion about the wild and weirdly popular right wing conspiracy theory that pits a heroic Donald Trump against an evil, satanic ‘deep state’ that includes Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, George Soros, and — somehow — Tom Hanks. Matt gets the full story and loves it all but particularly enjoys the theory that JFK Jr. is still alive— and planning to join President Trump on the 2020 ticket.

Joe Walsh | The Absolute Destruction Of The Truth
4061

Matt and former Tea Party Republican Congressman / popular conservative radio host Joe Walsh (‘The Joe Walsh Show’) disagree about almost everything besides Donald Trump— but they get along anyway. They discuss how our country is totally fucked, how no one listens to anyone besides who they already agree with, the 2020 election, deep fakes, QAnon, guns, and as the title suggests— the end of truth as we know it.
