We start this week off with the stupid United Airlines debacle and we tell you why every player involved was in the wrong.  Then it’s on to a Sheriff getting on his high horse and putting out an Al Qaeda and ISIS look-alike video.  That leads us to a discussion on the war on drugs and how it is doing more harm than good.  Of course, no conversation about the war on drugs is complete without pointing out the things that the money could’ve been spent on instead.  This leads to another chat about Hillbilly Elegy and how personal responsibility appears to be being phased out.  Lori then tries to sneak in a reboot conversation with her hated reboot jingle getting played, but she fails, and we run through IMDb’s list of upcoming reboots.  We talk about how vegans simply aren’t an accepting culture, and some are calling them racist.  We wrap up talking a bit about Tesla becoming the most valuable car company in America, and this all leads to some classic “Weird Al.”
