In episode 460, Jack and Miles are joined by comedian, author, and Noble Blood host Dana Schwartz to discuss the death of David Koch, the G7 Summit, Trump trying to go to war with China, Ruth Bader Ginsburg in treatment for a tumor, Fox New's thoughts on homelessness and marijuana, A$AP Rocky not thanking Trump, a giant volcano that could end human life, the new socialism-themed Monopoly game, and more!
