Episode 25: #NotAllMen, But Most Of Them, Apparently
2017 is terrible. Anyone who disagrees is probably a jerk. However, one of the few good things is the wave of men being held accountable for being total pieces of garbage. The list of men being accused of sexual harassment and sexual assault is never ending and every American industry is starting to flush out the monsters. Is this the beginning of the end of the patriarchy? Goddess, we flippin’ hope so.
On this episode, Ryan is joined by previous guests Alana, Julia, and Helen to discuss the recent outing of dozens of sexual predators. How do we feel about apologies? How do we deal with these people? We discuss Louis CK, Al Franken, Roy Moore, Donald Trump, Kevin Spacey, Harvey Weinstein, and many more. This one gets pretty honest and emotional, y’all.
Content Warning: This episode has a lot of personal stories and experiences about sexual harassment, violence, and assault.

Episode 23: Losing My Religion, But Not That REM Song
On this episode, we took a break from the usual political topics to talk religion. Darryl and Ryan are joined by network leader Malcolm Nygard and We’ll Get It Right Next Year’s Michael M. Rader to discuss their Christian upbringing and how that factors into their modern liberal sensibilities.
For this episode, Ryan builds his Jesus ethos by revealing he was raised a Catholic who maybe sort of went to church every once in a while. Darryl apparently had no real exposure to organized religion until he read the bible after he graduated college. Malcolm talks about his wholesome upbringing in a great church with a great community. Michael’s journey with Christianity was a little more intense until he ended up the full blown atheist we all know and love today. We also talk extensively about how obnoxious we all were as angsty teens. And how weird Paul is.
