51 - Don’t Call it a Comeback

June 22, 2020

We open this week’s episode with a report from the far-flung nation of the United States. Then the gang talks about the conspiracy theories around cops and those fireworks that are keeping you awake. Cuomo is trying to kill your grandparents, especially if you live in Troy. The dictatorship of the teen outsmarts the cheetoh-in-chief and for wildflowers we learn about a tortoise who has been a very busy boy.
