Dan Savage and Eli Sanders are on vacation—whatever that is—so Rich Smith has orchestrated a Millennial takeover of the show. First, Heidi Groover and Kim Selling stop by to talk about what everybody learned from Trump’s rambling, racist rally in Phoenix Tuesday night. The President’s speech appeared to appease the Nazis who marched on Charlottesville last week, and who now include a group enterprising young women among their ranks. The panel discusses why some women would be attracted to a woman-hating boys club, and also decodes all the new Nazi symbols popping up.
Then, Sydney Brownstone and Chase Burns tackle the persistent idea that Millennials are destroying the media. A look at the death of the Village Voice in print and the backroom drama at Mic shows that Millennials might not be the generation to blame. Finally, Chase and Heidi return for a special segment called “Tweets We Faved This Week,” where the group opens up about the gems they found on that discourse dumpster, Twitter dot com.
Plus, as always, the music of Ahamefule J. Oluo.
