Episode 110 - The 1776 Report by 24 People and Assorted Aides Appointed by the Trump Administration

123 minutes

Content Warnings: Our usual barnyard language, plus: political discussion & racism. It is impossible to discuss this report without also discussing politics and racism, so if you do not want to engage with these topics at the moment, please listen to this episode another time or never!
