Episode 87 talks about the confirmation of Betsy DeVos, the silencing of Elizabeth Warren, and a safe space for rational argument. Nate Gowdy

First, Dan Savage and Rich Smith chew through all that’s happened this week (which, once again, is quite a lot). In particular, we’ll discuss the Betsy DeVos confirmation, the silencing of Elizabeth Warren, and why Dan is furious at Jill Stein all over again.

After that, Sydney Brownstone talks about what it was like to be in the courthouse as a federal judge halted Donald Trump’s travel ban—and where the case against the ban goes next.

Finally, Dan and Rich are back to remind you: The Congressional recess is coming! Time to sharpen your town hall meeting questions.

Plus, as always, the music of Ahamefule J. Oluo.
