Episode 209 talks about the recent mass shootings, takes your calls, and praises the hell out of Fosse / Verdon. Scott Olson / Getty Images


Dan Savage, Eli Sanders, and Rich Smith talk about the mass shootings in Dayton and El Paso, Trump’s role in them, and whether we’ll now, finally see some Congressional action on common sense gun laws.

After that, a caller demands we stop talking about the Democratic presidential debates! (And we sorta comply—but only sorta.) Then, another caller takes Eli to task for comparing Marianne Williamson to Trump. Way off, she says.

Finally, Rich reflects on Toni Morrison and Dan talks about why he loves Fosse / Verdon on FX.

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