Friend of the show Molly Crabapple (@mollycrabapple) joins us to talk about getting arrested with a bunch of her fellow Jews at last week's Amazon/ICE protest, the Punisher logo, and the importance of antifascism. She then gives us an overview of the protests in Puerto Rico that exploded when now-former governor Ricardo Rosselló's ghoulish frat boy chat logs were leaked to the press. Asambleas! Flags! The nationalism of the colonial subject! Ricky Martin!

Simone discusses her viral "praxis" video. More irony talk, anti-intellectualism on the left, and the pitfalls of "normie socialism." We conduct a worker's inquiry into Simone's nanny job and her experience with Gen-Z, a group of kind and rational humans we are definitely not afraid of being turned into pelts by. Andy spills the beans about his online chess habit.
