Episode 147 hears Democratic Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal's prescription for winning the upcoming midterm elections. Also discussed: comebacks for #MeToo-felled men, the new Rachel Dolezal doc, and Michelle Wolf. John Boal


Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal is back on the show this week with her recipe for Democratic success in the upcoming midterm elections. She also answers Rich Smith’s burning questions about whether the national Democratic Party is interfering too much in local primary races. (Heads up Seattle listeners: Jayapal is holding a town hall meeting tonight at 5:30 pm at the downtown Seattle Public Library.)

But before all that, Dan Savage, Katie Herzog, and Eli Sanders trip through another crazy week—including the “raid” on Trump’s old doctor, Trump’s Nobel nomination, and Mueller’s long list of questions for the president. They also tackle Michelle Wolf’s “controversial” comedy set at the White House Correspondents Dinner and an important, hard-to-answer question: What do we do with the #MeToo-felled men who now want to make a comeback?

Also, Katie Herzog encourages listeners to check out the new Rachel Dolezal documentary, The Rachel Divide, which was recently released on Netxflix. There’s more to it than you might imagine. And Rich Smith reads a Lucille Clifton poem.

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