What happens when you cram 10 Democratic presidential candidates onto one debate stage in Miami, and then do it all over again the next night with 10 more candidates?

We’re finding out this week, and Eli Sanders, Katie Herzog, and Rich Smith have some thoughts about what to watch for and whether this is really that great a debate plan.

After that, Katie and Rich try to sort out whether Bernie Sanders’s new plan to eliminate student loan debt is better—or worse—than the plan Elizabeth Warren is already promoting.

Finally, Jasmyne Keimig and Chase Burns wade into the Pride Month “controversy” over Drag Queen Story Hours.

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