This week’s guest needs no introduction... unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last 5 years. Love her or hate her, everyone’s got an opinion about Rachel Dolezal. But Matt isn’t interested in loving her OR hating her— he just wants to try to understand who she is and where she’s coming from. Their conversation covers a wide range of topics from the micro to the macro: what race means to her personally, the coded but powerful strains of racism still operating in the world today, what it’s like to be railroaded by the American media, and why everyone got so upset with her in the first place.

Renowned astrologist Juliana McCarthy joins Matt, on her birthday of all days, to help him understand exactly what astrology really is— and why it’s gaining in popularity at this particular moment in time. (According to The Pew Research Center, over 25% of Americans now believe in astrology.) From there they get into a broader conversation about belief, myth, archetype, chaos, and human history. Finally, there is an unexpected but very welcome revelation about alt-right leader Richard Spencer’s sexual orientation. Matt’s world is rocked. Please subscribe, share, and leave a review.

Expert QAnon Researcher Travis View joins Matt for a detailed discussion about the wild and weirdly popular right wing conspiracy theory that pits a heroic Donald Trump against an evil, satanic ‘deep state’ that includes Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, George Soros, and — somehow — Tom Hanks. Matt gets the full story and loves it all but particularly enjoys the theory that JFK Jr. is still alive— and planning to join President Trump on the 2020 ticket.

Matt and former Tea Party Republican Congressman / popular conservative radio host Joe Walsh (‘The Joe Walsh Show’) disagree about almost everything besides Donald Trump— but they get along anyway.
