Y’all ever create a constitutional crisis to own the libs? This week, Rick Wilson (@TheRickWilson) joins Ana Marie Cox (@anamariecox) to talk Ana down after another week of neverending bad news. They discuss light topics such as the recent pro-forced birth laws in Alabama and Georgia, the need for democrats to campaign in the Midwest, and the future of our country. Afterwards, Jordan Klepper (@jordanklepper) comes on to talk about the formation of his new show Klepper, and what it means to weaponize your privilege when your show is based on a flawed premise. Jordan reminds us that there are people working for good, and that the world is not ending quite yet-- at least not without a fight. Want to help that fight for good?

"He creates his own reality," Klepper says of his character, who's modeled after far-right conspiracy theorists like Alex Jones. "He sees the two dots and he fills the spaces with the things that make him feel more comfortable." Also, Maureen Corrigan reviews the debut novel 'Self-Portrait with Boy' by Rachel Lyon.
