#401 - Dying, Lying, and Birding (Live at the Ritz)

69

Live in front of a crowd of five exhausted crew members, broadcasting from a suite at the Ritz-Carlton in midtown Manhattan (we’ll explain later), it’s another of those *forgive us father, for we are deep in our cups* episodes.

So take it all with a rather large rock of salt:

Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou, RIP
The philosemitic film festival
Peter Sellers was, in fact, Jewish (Sameach Pesach, btw)
Ugh. We have to talk about the Trump arrest.
The door wasn’t held. America is in crisis
That Trump speech
So who’s winning?
There’s bit of the führerprinzip in there, eh?
Political earthquakes in Wisconsin / Chicago
A qualified defense of Junior
A qualified defense of Don Lemon?
Birding while black
