Liz Preza and Joshua Holland kick off this week's show by recoiling in horror at the thought of sexy-time with Rudy Giuliani -- and by wondering if Borat will end up saving the republic. 
 
Then we're joined by Oliver Willis, a senior writer at The American Independent, for a wide-ranging discussion of what a post-Trump GOP might look like, and what Democrats should and definitely not learn from Trump if they manage to regain power in January. (And Joshua continues his tireless campaign lobbying Oliver to get another dog.)

This week, Liz Preza and Joshua Holland talk about Rudy Giuliani's clumsy attempt to make an October Surprise out of Hunter Biden's emails and the predictable outrage from the right when the legacy media didn't run with it like they did Uranium One four years ago. 
 
Then we're joined by attorney and CNN columnist Jill Filipovic to discuss Amy Coney Barrett's confirmation hearings and what a 6-3 Court with Neil Gorsuch serving as the median vote might actually look like.

This week, Liz Preza and Joshua Holland survey the damage from Wednesday's unpleasant vice presidential debate, and talk about Trump bailing on the second presidential wrangle. 
 
Then we're joined by Greg Sargent from The Washington Post to talk about how Trump contracting Covid has devastated his campaign, why seniors are fleeing the GOP and how Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell may have concluded that Trump is going to lose and is setting up a new Tea Party movement for a Biden presidency.

This week, Liz Preza and Joshua Holland kick off the show with a sad, very disappointed look at the nightmarish first -- and in a perfect world, last -- debate between Joe Biden and Donald Trump.
 
Then we're joined by Pulitzer Prize-winning author David Cay Johnston to talk about what we learned from -- and may yet discover in the future -- the New York Times' getting its hands on years of Donald Trump's taxes.
