Brad Robinson of the Skid Row Housing Trust is this week's guest in preparation for his appearance on next week's "very intense" homelessness episode. This week the show looks at the ongoing Asia Argento story (and was recorded before any super-recent developments) and Isaac ties it in to his pet theory about Anthony Bourdain.
Then a quick examination of the bicyclists who were killed in Tajikistan and why certain parties where so quick to turn it into a narrative about their pet issues. Also: how is Tajikistan pronounced? The identity of the person who knows will surprise you.
Also: someone keeps chewing gum, everyone gets called a fascist (including our long-suffering listeners), and a new sound clip makes its debut.
