  • Unity! Now get the fuck out
  • What Rep, Meijer wrong about January 6th
  • Dear Congress: gimme some truth about January 6th
  • Why Nancy Pelosi wanted impeachment to fail
  • To get out of an anti-democratic moment, we must have even less democracy
  • 'You voted to impeach and your career has been weird ever since' - Matt Welch
  • Was that terrorism? Or just a bunch of delusional losers
  • Is the insurrection investigation the job of congress or...historians?
  • He's 'fucking furious'
  • Exit question to Rep. Meijer: What say you about Julian Assange?
  • 'Just find out about the UFOs' - Kmele Foster
  • An hour of post-Meijer postgame
  • A mask for Dmitrios: remembering Kmele's trip to Greece
  • Pack the court! / Kmele's insane Elizabeth Warren impression

Foster and Fisher are joined by legendary civil liberties attorney Ken White (of Popehat blogger and Twitter fame) and Damon Root (Reason's resident SCOTUS journalo and the author of 'Overruled') to chop up the Justice Anthony Kennedy's surprise retirement announcement, his legacy, and the confirmation shitstorm that's sure to come.

Also on tap:

- SPLC's capitulation to Maajid Nawaz's defamation suit- SCOTUS upholds the travel ban, busts public sector unions, and tells cops to get a warrant for long-term cellphone location records.

Bonus bull session on civility, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, civil rights, public accommodations, free association, and why no elected officials should be allowed to eat anywhere, ever.
