Dan Savage, Eli Sanders, and Katie Herzog discuss Attorney General William Barr’s problematic Congressional testimony and then try to figure out what’s so exciting about the presidential candidacy of Joe Biden.

After that, Rich Smith jumps in to consider the apparently false sexual assault smear against Pete Buttigieg and fresh outrages from the Trump administration’s war on immigrants.

Finally, Jasmyne Keimig and Chase Burns talk about three things you need to watch that are *not* Game of Thrones or the new Avengers movie. They are: Barry, Now Apocalypse, and the re-tooled Apocalypse Now.

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