Eli Sanders, Rich Smith, and Katie Herzog look into the latest Republican scare-talk: Democratic “mobs.”

Then it’s on to something that's actually, truly scary: the new climate change warnings from a panel of UN scientists.

After that, Katie announces her run for US Senator in Maine and then explores a student-made list of anonymous rape accusations at the University of Washington.

Finally, Stranger arts writer Jasmyne Keimig talks about the work of Natalie Diaz, who just won a MacArthur “Genius” grant.

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