Australian Survivor: The Kings Are Dead, Long Live The Kings

It's been an eventful week on Australian Survivor and we invited back Adam Rida, the only Australian we've ever met, to talk about it.

All this and more on this episode available below, here, or on iTunes here.

Survivor 35: Cast + Season Preview

Charlottesville + Fighting Fascists with Curtis Morrison

In the wake of the chaos in Charlottesville, white nationalism is back in the spotlight. Are these wannabe Nazis just sad teenagers in their basements podcasting gaming all day or do they represent a larger threat? Whatever this threat is, what tactics are morally justifiable and tactically effective at fighting it? And how has Trump's victory enabled and emboldened fringe movements? We cover these questions and more on the first of what may be a series of political episodes, available below, here, or on iTunes here.
