Marc has backup! Briahna Joy Gray (National Press Secretary for the Bernie Sanders 2020 presidential campaign) joins the latest episode of "What Do You Really Think?" to hit Buck with a good-spirited "Marxist ambush" (his words). The three of them have an in-depth conversation about the state of politics in America, including liberal vs. conservative media, filibuster reform, the future of the minimum wage, employee-owned companies, defining Marxism, a BLM founder's recent home purchase, and much more.
Buck is back! On this week's episode, Buck and Marc reflect on their (miserable) experiences with COVID and discuss the latest pandemic news (including an invitation to Dr. Fauci). And later, the guys talk about the voter debate raging in Georgia, including the discussion around wait times and Voter ID laws, the risk of voter fraud vs. voter disenfranchisement, and the question of whether or not we really want every American to vote.
Our thoughts this week are with Buck, who's out sick with (but thankfully recovering well from) COVID, so Marc opens the show solo on the latest episode with his thoughts (and his best guesses on Buck's thoughts) about Dr. Fauci, President Biden's press conference, immigration, the tragic shooting in Boulder, the Derek Chauvin trial, and the Meghan McCain and Sharon Osbourne trending stories. Plus, listen back to some of our favorite guest conversations with Candace Owens and Van Lathan, and don't forget to send your comments and questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Marc and Buck don’t waste any time on the latest episode of “What Do You Really Think?” getting right into the latest COVID news and policy/science developments before jumping to the other big topics of the week, including Teen Vogue’s decision to fire editor-in-chief Alexi McCammond over her past racist tweets, the nuances and various layers of “cancel culture,” the fast-changing dynamics of gender identity (including pronouns and “deadnaming”), and the media coverage of the terrible mass-shooting in Atlanta that left eight people dead. Thanks for listening, and please send your comments and questions to email@example.com.
On this week's episode, Buck and Marc kick things off with workout talk (Marc got a Peloton!) and an NCAA Tournament-inspired conversation about paying college athletes before transitioning to the big political news of the week: how Andrew Cuomo's fall from grace compares to other recent politicians (like John Edwards, Bill Clinton, Al Franken, and Rudy Giuliani), the problems with the imprecise language we use to discuss sexual misconduct, the right to be believed vs. the right to be heard, and the latest on COVID and masking, including Dr. Fauci's response to a recent Jake Tapper question about social distancing.
On this week’s “What Do You Really Think?” episode, Buck and Marc kick things off discussing Marc’s new tattoo before diving in on the week’s news, including Andrew Cuomo’s latest accusers (and the similarities to Al Franken/Donald Trump/Bill Maher), Buck’s latest frustrations with Dr. Fauci, more conversations around Dr. Seuss (plus other cartoons from the past including The Simpsons/Tom and Jerry/Pepe Le Pew), words that have been canceled (many for good reason), comparing “Apache” helicopters to Washington “Redskins,” Facebook regulations, police abolitionism, and much more.
This week’s “What Do You Really Think?” episode comes a day later than usual after Marc lost power in the Catskills during our first recording attempt, so he and Buck had an extra day's worth of news to discuss, including Buck’s experience at CPAC in Florida, what debating on cable TV news shows is *really* like, the “cancel” conversation from differing political perspectives, differing mask policies in Florida/California/Texas, their thoughts on the latest Derek Chauvin news, and the decision to remove six Dr. Seuss books from circulation. Plus, a throwback photo of Buck and Marc together at the White House Correspondents Dinner (back when President Obama outshined host Larry Wilmore).
On this week’s episode of “What Do You Really Think?”, Buck and Marc discuss the passing of Rush Limbaugh and the latest COVID-related revelations about Andrew Cuomo. Plus, a big pop culture episode: Marilyn Manson, Britney Spears, Michael Che, Woody Allen, Michael Jackson, Coldplay, and Black-ish (among many other topics). And finally, please don’t let your kid watch SpongeBob SquarePants without headphones at a restaurant table near Buck!
In their first episode since Trump's second impeachment acquittal, Buck and Marc discuss all aspects of the trial, its coverage in the media, and how it impacts Democrats and Republicans going forward. And later, they dig in on the many foreign policy topics covered in Marc's new book, Except For Palestine, and they exchange some thoughts on everything from Mitt Romney and Nancy Pelosi to Tom Brady and other sports legends who deserve to be in the GOAT debate.
Special guest Van Lathan (Host of the "Higher Learning" podcast) joins Buck and Marc to discuss the latest from the worlds of politics, social issues, and pop culture, including (among other topics): teachers unions and school closings, the NBA's decision to have an All-Star Game, the Capitol riots and Trump's future, Black Lives Matter, and Antifa. Plus, a spirited debate about The Godfather Part II versus Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
