Quizzes! Impressions! Shouting at cable news clips! And everyone’s favorite: nuanced discussion. New episodes every Saturday.

"Lovett waxes poetic on everything from Disney villains with queer undertones (Scar? Ursula? come on) to Big Little Lies."

"Lovett can squeeze a Trump diss out of any situation and even finds a way to mock him during the ads. When talk turns to a story about internet privacy, he ramps up the critique. He is preaching to a like-minded audience, but wouldn’t it be fun to throw a hardcore Republican into the quick-thinking bear pit and see what happens? There’s as much chance of that as of anyone on this podcast swearing allegiance to Trump, but it’s still worth a listen."

"Funny commentary on the Bob Woodward interviews with President Trump. The host is knowledgable about politics and witty, look forward to listening to a few more episodes. Didn't make it past the few 15 minutes though."
