On the latest episode, Buck and Marc welcome Rob Smith to the show for a wide-ranging conversation about Michelle Obama’s concerns about her daughters facing housing discrimination, nuances of race and class, who really sets the narrative about race in America, what an “elevated” conversation about race would look like, the view on defunding the police from both sides, and an examination of the history of racism in America.
On this week's episode, Buck and Marc discuss the recent CDC update about masking outdoors, how much is too much when it comes to masking policy (or speed limits for that matter), homicide rates during the pandemic, gun control and the Second Amendment, whether police interrupt violence or just respond to it, and why "terrified" institutions (like elite private schools) keep releasing diversity statements.
Buck's back from the border, so he and Marc start the latest episode of "What Do You Really Think?" with an in-depth conversation about immigration policy in America, including hot-button issues like deportation, open borders, and the honest conversations we're simply not having about immigration. And later, they discuss the shooting of Ma'Khia Bryant, LeBron's controversial tweet about the police officer, the distinction between police vs. the policing system, and more.

On this week's episode episode, Buck and Marc discuss Marc’s viral interview with BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors, if and when doxing is justified, their expectations for the Derek Chauvin verdict and response, the history of due process in America, the impact of (and rationale behind) protesting/rioting, and Buck’s upcoming trip to the US-Mexico border.
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 email@example.com.
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.

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.
