Dan Savage, Eli Sanders, and Rich Smith dive into the latest intrigue swirling around the Russia investigation and ask whether Paul Manafort just successfully played Special Counsel Robert Mueller. (On the flip side, they also ask: Is Mueller perhaps the most successful edge-dom in America?)

After that, Katie Herzog has some advice for processing the Trump administration climate change report and humanity’s frightening failure to take on this civilization-threatening problem.

Finally, Jasmyne Keimig tells Dan Savage about The Bisexual.

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