Eli Sanders, Katie Herzog, and Rich Smith ponder the “dark psychic force” that was unleashed during this week’s first Democratic presidential candidate debate.

We have Marianne Williamson to thank for the phrase, but what do we make of Williamson's Trump-of-the-Left stylings? And how’d Warren and Bernie do? And how many more of these cage match debates can we take???

After that, three really interesting calls from Blabbermouth listeners on why “the revolution” isn’t coming.

And finally, Chase Burns and Jasmyne Keimig talk about the Criterion Collection and an epic journey the two of them are making to the lost world of DVDs.

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