Million Dollar Extremists

This week is all about the recently-cancelled Adult Swim show Million Dollar Extreme: World Peace. Was it an "alt-right sketch comedy show?" Was it the victim of a liberal crusade, a casualty of corporate skittishness, or just not very good? This week's guests are editor Justin Lopez and comedian Matthew Robinson taking the pro and con sides of MDE. Isaac is outraged, Charles is agnostic. We talk about the events leading up to the show's cancellation, whether or not it was funny (and whether that even mattered), the purpose of comedy, and Isaac's new word "skitch."
