147. Raoul Wallenberg
CONTENT WARNING: This episode deals with the violence of the Holocaust. We don’t go into graphic detail, but it also can’t be avoided.We wrap up our con artists miniseries and kick off our “Resisting Fascism” miniseries (the fascists made us do it) by talking about someone who used his con artist skills for the ultimate good: Raoul Wallenberg! Special guest Bridget Callahan joins us, and helps us remember that we are still technically a comedy podcast! Zach, Bridget, and Brian want you to help fight fascism with whatever tools you have (also it’s very late at night and I’m mad so this is in lieu of the traditional show notes).

146. L. Ron Hubbard
Brian opens this episode with an appeal for you to support your local abortion fund. If you’re looking for one, Cobalt is near and dear to our hearts, or you can support the National Network here.

Steve Vanderploeg and a very special surprise guest help us talk about L. Ron Hubbard! Due to computer issues, Brian had to record on a laptop in his kitchen and not the studio, so his audio is a little off, which we hope is not too noticeable.We love hearing from you!
