The Best Debate in the Universe - The Ms. America beauty pageant recently ruled to eliminate the swimsuit portion of the contest. Is this a response to PC culture? Is beauty still relevant? That's part of the debate this week: SHOULD BEAUTY PAGEANTS HAVE SWIMSUIT CONTESTS?
Monday June 11th 2018
Debate starts at: 3:10. Should swimsuit contests be a party of beauty pageants? Model and actress Lauren Francesca joins us to debate this week, and I make a strong case for why objectification is... a good thing. It's just a sample of the brilliance you'll be exposed to by watching and listening to this show. Speaking of, we also did a pilot run of our first-ever LIVE EPISODE. We're experimenting with broadcasting live on Saturdays when we record. Stay tuned for more information.

Ron Babcock is back this week, but had to leave early to catch a boat. I guess that's a thing that happens now. Thanks Obama. Taylor Nikolai brought the headlines as always, and got a special shout-out at the end of the episode from our own Bad Hombre (listen past the credits).

We finally round out this episode with headlines from Taylor. Some idiot gets bit by a rattle snake's head after he chops it off. Then some munkin dies. Are the stories related? Listen to find out. Or read the end of this sentence for a spoiler: no they are not. Voicemail below:
