Dan Savage returns to help Eli Sanders and Katie Herzog deal with Trump’s very weird and upsetting State of the Union address.

Also discussed: Nancy Pelosi’s epic clapback and Stacey Abrams’s delivery of the official Democratic response to Trump’s speech.

After that, WTF is going in Virginia? Rich Smith tells Eli and Katie what he thinks should be done about a Democratic governor, lieutenant governor, and attorney general who are all suddenly in very big trouble over pasts that appear to include either blackface or alleged sexual assault, depending on the politician.

Finally, Chase Burns, Jasmyne Keimig, and Nathalie Graham discuss The Velvet Buzzsaw, new filmic treatments of Ted Bundy, and Netflix’s potential use of Big Data to shape its content.

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