Even though Buck doesn't care about the Olympics, he and Marc start this week's episode with two Olympics-related conversations -- 1) the enjoyment on the Right watching the "woke" U.S. women's soccer team's stunning defeat to Canada in the semifinals, and 2) whether people should have celebrated the "bravery" of Simone Biles for withdrawing from the Olympics for mental health-related reasons. And later, the guys inevitably turn the conversation to COVID updates, including the debates that continue to rage around mask policy and vaccine mandates.
On this week's episode, Buck and Marc open by discussing an undercovered story involving Clinton donor Ed Buck, and then the guys run through a bunch of topics in the news: rising COVID rates nationally, vax-shaming, natural immunity, the actual numbers on who's *not* getting vaccinated (Trump supporters vs. Black people), social distancing as a luxury, the "college pledge" and the hypocrisy of white liberals, holistic admissions policies and affirmative action, and more.
On "What Do You Really Think?" this week, Marc opens by describing his "Buck Moment" with masking policy in Maui, and then the guys run through several topics on their minds: the stock market's worst day of the Biden presidency, vaccine hesitancy and anti-vax sentiment, the media's continuing obsession with Trump, whether mandatory vaccines should be allowed in places like children's hospitals or senior centers, and the complicated situation in Cuba (and the American Left's divided response to it).
On this week's "What Do You Really Think?" episode, Buck and Marc break down the latest coronavirus news before diving deep into recent political news and potential future developments, including Trump vs. DeSantis, the Trump-Biden age debate, who would win a DeSantis vs. Kamala presidential election, whether the 2024 Democratic nominee be someone other than Biden or Harris, the final nail in Andrew Cuomo's political coffin, Gavin Newsom's uncertain future, and whether or not Marc or Buck would ever run for political office.
On this week's "What Do You Really Think?" episode, Buck and Marc discuss the tenure controversy involving Nikole Hannah-Jones and the University of North Carolina, Bill Cosby's surprising release from prison (after which he immediately tried to troll Marc on Twitter), reforming vs. abolishing the criminal justice and prison systems, and the debate around a transgender weightlifter's Olympic dream.
Forgive the guys if they're not quite as sharp this week -- Marc finally collected on his Biden election bet with Buck, which means they were out late last night enjoying some well-earned sake. That said, they still manage to cover plenty of important topics on the latest "What Do You Really Think?" episode, including VP Kamala Harris visiting the border, Joy Reid inviting Chris Rufo onto her show to discuss Critical Race Theory, and Senator Whitehouse defending his beach club membership, not to mention updates on Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and more.
On this week's "What Do You Really Think?" episode, the guys use Marc's latest viral interview (this time with Dr. Aruna Khilanani) to kickstart a wide-ranging conversation about the nuances of cultural appropriation, a battle of food analogies between melting pot vs. salad bowl to define America's multicultural society, and various examples and hypotheticals of cultural appropriation (cooking tacos + Eminem + Elvis) before wrapping things up with a quick aside about sports fandom as Buck prepares to host his new radio show with longtime sportswriter Clay Travis (Buck also explains why he and his large head couldn't play football).
A busy week abroad! On this week's episode, Buck and Marc discuss Kamala Harris' rough first foreign trip, the continuing issues at the border, and President Biden's G-7 Summit before turning their attention to the ongoing culture wars in America, particularly around the issue of critical race theory in schools.
On “What Do You Really Think?” this week, Buck talks about his new radio show in Rush Limbaugh’s former time-slot, Marc discusses his sports fandom and being too political for ESPN, and the guys dig in on the lack of genuine conversation in today’s political discourse, Kamala Harris’ much-discussed recent trip to Guatemala, the impact (or lack thereof) that foreign aid has on slowing illegal immigration into the U.S., whether a stable economy will lead to voter inertia at the midterm elections, the debate around critical race theory, how college admissions approach race, and more.
Round 2! Special guest Ben Ferguson joins another episode of "What Do You Really Think?" to discuss Joe Biden's ability to govern effectively at his age, how Biden compares to Barack Obama and Ronald Reagan, whether or not Black Lives Matter has a perception problem, concerns around the fast-rising crime rates, and the impact of anti-police rhetoric.
