Show Notes

  • — Kyle’s Friends: Liz Miele and Calvin Cato are in studio. Liz is friends with Kyle Ocasio, so she’s okay; however, the jury is still out on Calvin.
  • — International Section: 10-year-old English girl Hannah-Marie Clayton wrote Kellogg's to complain that the slogan, Loved by Kids, Approved by Mums, excludes dads. The company is reworking the slogan.
  • — Bad Runner: Despite being featured in Runner's World, Liz still thinks she’s just okay at running. The gang discusses the differences between the mythical runners high and being high on drugs.
  • — Institutionalized: Calvin despises porn that makes black people the animals
  • — Disgraceful: Colonel Tran Trong Duyet, McCain's former Vietnamese jailer, praised Senator John McCain so much more than President Donald Trump ever did, even in death
  • — The Country: Nike endorsed quarterback Colin Kaepernick for kneeling in protest of civil rights violations in America. People across the country have been protesting by defacing their Nike products and trying to ban Nike from being carried in stores across entire cities. Keith explains the origins of Kaepernick’s movement.
