Episode #2×22: Director Despot

Andrew survives his flight across the Atlantic, eliminating any hopes we had of being on CNN.
  • Primary season sings its swan song as California and five other states go to the ballot box.
  • If I call Laura an ill-begotten slag, is that hate speech, or historical fact? Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft and others implement a new content policy in Europe and we straddle the fence between “okay sure” and “okay… no.”
  • BREAKING: Great swimmers everywhere exonerated of moral responsibility. Talented writers now free to commit acts of treason. In related news, the Stanford rape case is serving as a grotesque but important flashpoint for rape culture.
  • FBI Director James Comey asks Congress for help spying on American citizens’ internet history without a warrant. That’s not how this “legal system” thing works, Director Despot.
  • If your senator sits on either the Senate Judiciary Committee or Senate Intelligence Committee, call or email them — tell them your porn preferences are yours and yours alone.
  • Devil’s Advocate puts Laura in a super awkward position.
And in this week’s After Dark:
  • We plan our election season coverage, including a new segment idea and the possibility of a live in-person show in Washington, D.C.
  • We pack a Trump survival kit and decide we’re giving it away to a listener.
  • Surprise, bitch! I mean Secretary Clinton. Sorry. Do you have a moment to talk about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ?
