We settled on this late May episode, in which the lovely and talented Lauren Theisen joined us to talk about the Stanley Cup—there are no spoilers on the outcome, somehow!—and the NFL’s utterly predictable and still unsolved anthem-related issues. Most of the episode, though, focuses on some truly evergreen shit: performative Trumpish buffoonery and earnest advice to young graduates from two heartbreakingly old dudes and an actual high-functioning young person.


Next week, the heartbreakingly old dudes will be back, discussing whatever sports shit we can come up with and, presumably, rheumatoid arthritis. If you have any advice on where to find a good phone-smashing rock, I hope you will let me know.
