—Unsolved Mysteries, the show the got Jason into the paranormal and true crime, is being rebooted by Netflix. The good news is that the original production team is involved. The bad news is, we don’t know who will host. Bobby is pretty excited, while Jason has a few reservations.
–What’s on Bobby’s mind? Politics, as usual. RIght now he is enamored with the idea of Trump not being able to deliver his State of the Union address as planned.
–He’s also thinking more about how much he pays in taxes, and is now reconsidering his political viewpoints. Jason talks again about the freedom of being tribeless and how political parties should die out.
–It’s time for us to talk about the latest viral outrage story of the week: MAGA kids vs Native American. We discuss how quickly the narrative fell apart, and how disappointed we are that political activists find it perfectly acceptable to demonize teenagers. Plus, how is it that the Black Hebrew Israelites, who were the one group there actually shouting racist and sexually derogatory terms, got such a big pass?
–CNN analyst Areva Martin accuses David Webb of “white privilege” before learning he, too, is black. Jason’s favorite story of the previous week!
–We received an email from “a true gentleman” who disagreed a bit with our take last week that consumers should buy the best products for the lowest prices, saying that political viewpoints should be more involved. Bobby talks about how, while he used to feel revulsion at shopping at a place like Hobby Lobby, for instance, he now is so concerned about saving money that he overlooks the CEOs views.
–We end the show with a recommendation and a reminder. Bobby recommends the show YOU on Netflix, a story of handsome stalker Joe Goldberg who inserts himself into the life of his love interest, Beck. Jason says that, by the time this podcast is made available, Conversations With A Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes, will be streaming on Netflix. So there ya go. Two good looking bad guys; one fictional, and the other very much not.
