Jake "Silly Socrates" Flores is back on the show to talk about his new podcast Why You Mad? and theories of comedy and class war.

But before that, we talk about something that's no laughing matter: the NYPD's permissive culture towards rapists and other abusers on the force, unfortunately celebrated by humorous challenge coins and nicknames like the "assman". Writer for the Appeal and the Intercept Tana Ganeva joins us to discuss the failures of Cuomo and di Bunglio's even tepid reforms, speculate why it's been such a shell game, and if "defund" or "abolish" police and prisons are the right approach.
