About This Show
I want to understand people I disagree with instead of just being angry at them. I want to have big conversations where I don't have to be politically correct or well-spoken. I'm a jumble of thoughts and words and really I just want to laugh and drink Gin & Tonics.

This is much better than building a wall. Or lying about building a wall.
This inauguration is an amazing opportunity for America. It’s time to take back the night, people of reason. This is the wake-up call. This is when the revolution happens. If not now, when?
Today I talk to Deepti Sahrawat, a lawyer/comedian living in New York. She’s marching in DC on Saturday and I wanted to get her feelings on the impending doom. Great chat. Hope you like it.
Let the good fight begin!
