The hosts are back in the studio and ready to launch into perhaps the show's most disturbing episode ever! We cover it all: was Anthony Fauci incompetent or simply functioning as scientists must? Is this unrest the natural result of years of inequality or fomented by international enemies? And most importantly: who can save the US from its coming nightmare?
Also: the problem with Trump, the uselessness of talking and teaching, and what defunding the police actually means.
It's a clash of the personality-defected titans! Isaac recently completed work on an art project (www.CollabGenerator.com) and did not receive supportive words from Charles. Is Charles a spiteful, thoughtless crusher of creativity or is Isaac an oversensitive crybaby? Maybe it's both! Personality disorders are diagnosed and the healing begins! Listeners are encouraged to write in their own diagnoses to firstname.lastname@example.org
Also: Isaac's desire for a 1991 Toyota Camry, Charles is nice to women but not men, and the value of "sandwich stuff."

Your friendly hosts have been locked up in their houses consuming content, and here is a report! It's time to talk about two extremely popular TV series about big news stories that took place in the 1990s: the Chicago Bulls's final championship run and the siege of the Branch Davidian complex near Waco, Texas.
Isaac is the show's resident sports guy and Charles last paid attention to sports when he was in high school. Together they investigate the joys of ESPN's The Last Dance and discuss Michael Jordan's value as an entertainer, the cinematic career of Dennis Rodman, and why Ken Burns is so salty. (Note: this episode only discusses the first four parts of The Last Dance).
Then it's time for Waco, the Paramount Network limited series burning up Netflix: how did something so sympathetic to David Koresh get made? Is it one of the best series ever made? And what will the Not a Huge Fan prestige TV show opening credits look like?
Also discussed: listener emails, a show Discord server, and why Facebook bans mention of the Ukraine whistleblower.
We know you've been waiting for it and here it is: a political catch up on the state of the race! What happened during the primary? Why couldn't Bernie win? Why didn't Warren do better? Is Biden fit to be running? Is Joe Rogan correct to vote for Trump over Biden? Your intrepid hosts state their own voting preferences and give their predictions!
