320 w/ Harry Siegel - "Bonfire of Insanity, The Unmaking of a Mayor, CRT IRL"
New York Daily News columnist Harry Siegel joins TFC for the first hour to talk all things New York (with a focus on halfwit mayoral candidates jockeying to replace a halfwit mayor). But if you don't care about kvetching, NYCentric coastal elites, the back half of the show is, as usual, about how coastal elites are dumb, joyless, and boring. Something for everyone. - New York is back? Harry is back to tell us it never went away- Harry would rather be an effete, elitist jerk wearing his mask too long, thank you very much- The New York City mayoral race tells us nothing about America- The weirdness of Eric Adams- Check the crime, y'all- "Desegregating" NYC schoolsHarry Siegel Postgame- The increasingly annoying CRT debate- Defining truth in an era of lies- Pointless: the Joe and Vlad summit- More cyber war hawkishness from Moynihan (obviously) - The lessons we never learn from 9/11- The dangers of political violence--and of opposing (certain) political violence- You're wrong about Jeff Bezos's taxes See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

310 - "Two Live Shows and a Key West Hangover"
Florida is open for business, so The Fifth Column flung its masks into the garbage and headed to the Sunshine State for back-to-back live shows in Miami (coming soon to Patreon!) and a poolside recording in Key West (hence that hollow sound). Nursing hangovers and gasping in the heat, the lads stumble through the following pressing (and pointless) topics:- Those Miami shows were pretty fun, eh? - Wait, why exactly are we in Florida?- Kmele thinks Creepy Joe wasn't being creepy- The global minimum tax is dumb- Ransomware everywhere - This not wearing masks things is pretty great, innit?- COVID addicts, COVID miscellany- Kmele on the Fauci emails: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯- The end of Tiananmen- State violence works- And so very much more...

306 w/ Gustavo Arellano - "Ask a Mexican, Trump's a Mexican, and the Republican Crackup"
The lads (minus Kmele, recently felled by his second Pfizer shot) welcome Los Angeles Times columnist Gustavo Arellano, host of the new LAT podcast "The Times" and author of Taco USA: How Mexican Food Conquered America. Note that after an hour of Gustavo's trademark Southern California/Mexican smack talk--in which he defends Taco Bell, ruminates on "LatinX," explains "Tio Tacos" and "Chicanosauruses," and describes American ethnic tensions that don't involve white people (!)--Moynihan and Welch return to discuss the on-going disasters in Israel, the economy, and the Republican Party. Sure, everything is awful. But as always, The Fifth Column is here to point out just how awful and reassure you that it absolutely won't get better in the near future.Recorded May 12, 2021 See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
