  • — Dot Dot Dot: The gang discusses the Golden Globes, Best Actor winner Casey Affleck’s sexual assault allegations, the night’s multiple ‘Hidden Fences’ slip-ups, Meryl Streep’s inspiring speech, and the response from Donald Trump and the president of an MMA organization.
  • — Open And Shut: John is the President of Open Primaries, an organization that fights closed primary elections. He considers New York’s primary election set-up to be a work of art in terms of not letting people vote.

  • — The Cut-Ups: Emily and Chemda have never cut themselves but they understand the impulse; however, cigarettes and lousy boyfriends probably performed the same function for them.
