a real standard hangnail at the corner of my pinky toe.

is looked like a like I fucked up my manicure
or some ship and just got a little bit of
red on the side of it. Oh, no, fucking hangnails. Man.
But you know what I can't I can't say no

(00:41):
to a hangnail.

all the time. Yeah, man, that shit was That shit
goes Anyway, this is this is what season three forty five.

(01:29):
This is episode one. This is the time we tell
you about everything that trended over the weekend. It's me
the main mc miles g in the Place to be
with his homie, b Ryan the editor. What's going on, Brian?
Thank you for.

Speaker 2 (01:45):
The things are going good. I'm sleepy because it's early.

Speaker 1 (01:49):
In the morning. I mean, we all know you're a
nocturnal animal, so I really appreciate you arising to pre
noon waking hours.

Speaker 2 (01:59):
Levitated up out of my coffin, made myself a coffee. Yeah.

Speaker 1 (02:04):
Man, anyway, here we are. It's Tuesday, Jai. Wait, no, no,
it's Monday, sorry July. First, if I did not make
that clear, it's the first of the month. We are here.
We're fully in the summer. Now, wake up, man. People
still people still fuck with bull dogs like that, dude.

Speaker 2 (02:23):
They better, they better.

Speaker 1 (02:24):
I know we do. We do here because but we
also we're from la so that's just how it is,
even though they're from Ohio. Let's get into everything that
was trending, But first we got to tell each other
what we think is under underrated and overrated, Brian, what
is something you think is underrated? Underrated?

Speaker 2 (02:43):
I am gonna go with let's see here, what we got,
what we got? What we got? Air travel?

Speaker 1 (02:49):
What do you a time traveler from the nineteenth century?

Speaker 2 (02:53):
That is the angle I'm going with.

Speaker 1 (02:55):
Yet I've not seen such contraptions.

Speaker 2 (02:58):
Basically, Yeah, that's that's the way of I'm on right now.
So most of what I hear people talk about air
travel is complaining or like weird ship. Yeah, yeah, yeah,
And I just want to acknowledge out loud how fucking
impressive it is that you can get damn near anywhere
in the world within a day, or just being on

(03:19):
a vehicle that's traveling six hundred miles an hour. It's
just nutty to me. This is insane.

Speaker 1 (03:25):
You're almost word for word doing a Louis c k
bit right now that he did on Late Night. Oh no, really,
everyone to fucking complain And is that really a thing?

Speaker 2 (03:37):
Oh no, I really am you guys?

Speaker 1 (03:40):
Sorry, have you did you fly anywhere recently? No?

Speaker 2 (03:45):
You know, so Camo has been yeah, yeah, yeah, that's
that's what I'll call my my significant other. Yeah, yeah, exactly,
And yeah, she's been traveling and I'm just you know,
like you worry. I hope everything's getting where it's going, yeah, safely.

(04:05):
And it's just like most planes do. And it's kind
of impressive.

Speaker 1 (04:10):
But it's funny for you because you're also on such
the cutting edge of technology as a person that like,
I don't know if you always have this perspective, like
with this one, you're like, guys, air travel, why are
we complaining the fact that we can do it? We
should just be marveling with that. Meanwhile, like there are
no I know you, and there's like no pair of
headphones that is good enough for your head because they're

(04:32):
failing in one way or the other.

Speaker 2 (04:33):
I do have a pair that I bought specifically for try.
I just don't I don't fly that often.

Speaker 1 (04:39):
Yeah, yeah, yeah no, But I'm just saying, like how
the bar is different like headphones, bro, I don't give
a like I'm holding you to a completely different standard
air travel. Yes, I get it, we're flying very fast.
I appreciate that, but I can't.

Speaker 2 (04:49):
Yeah, exactly that movement. You don't move it's six hundred
miles an hour that often, and it's just I don't know,
it's kinda it's kind of cool, how like just the
level of trust that's been built up over time. So
even though with all this like boeing shit, all these
regulation stuff, it's still like there's still that level of
trust of I'm going to trust this complete fucking stranger

(05:12):
to fly me around at six hundred miles an hour
and get me where I need to go.

Speaker 1 (05:16):
Yeah, bless the pilots and bless the drugs that they
do to stay alert to land the planes. My underrated
and you'll know about this because we were both we
both saw this video over the weekend. My underrated is
Canadian wrap YouTubers, you know in the Kendrick Lamar and
Drake Beef. A lot of the time, it's very easy

(05:37):
to fall into this binary of like America versus Canada,
and America better because America invent hip hop, but Canadians,
I think are just smarter people in general, you know,
funnier people a lot of the time. But I've noticed
a lot of the fucking commentary I've really liked on
YouTube have actually come from Canadians talking about the like,

(05:59):
you know, just there noalys and things like that. But
there's one specific video, What's the Dirt by that channel
what's the dirt this guy or is he from like
Newfoundland or something?

Speaker 2 (06:08):
I want to see. Yeah, he's from like somewhere over
there on that side, definitely.

Speaker 1 (06:13):
Yeah, because he's got like every time, every now and
then it like it veers into like sounding Irish. He's like, yeah,
Kendrick was in the dark on this one, and I
was like, wait, what the He's.

Speaker 2 (06:21):
Got an interesting accent. I'm pretty sure, let me know.

Speaker 1 (06:24):
Is he a new fee? I don't know, but anyway
he did. He did like one of the wildest breakdowns
of Kendrick six sixteen in La Drake distrack, and it
is so detailed. I'm I'm actually really blown away. Like
every time every now and then, I like, I like
to go on genius and look at how people are
like sort of interpreting certain wrap lines, especially when there's

(06:44):
references that go completely over my head and some make sense.
But this video like it's sort of spelling every single
thing out for you in a ways that I I
just didn't have the depth of knowledge or dedication to
break down a bar like that first verse and the beginning.
I was like, oh, yeah, look he's on his like
big baller rapper shit. But then when and what's the

(07:07):
dirt vide? He's like, this man is rapping as Drake
right now, just so you know, this is him fully
doing Drake to set up all this other stuff.

Speaker 2 (07:15):
And yeah, when they got over my fucking head. There's
just so many little details, but yeah, his breakdown was
so impressive.

Speaker 1 (07:26):
It's yeah, it's unbelievable. I mean it really is, I think,
to the point where to connect all these dots. I
mean it definitely had conspiracy theory, red thread on the
wall vibes, but even like his artistic interpretation of like
what he was even rapping, it was just on point.
So you know what, shout out Canadian wrap YouTubers.

Speaker 2 (07:44):
We should you know.

Speaker 1 (07:45):
I love hearing your commentary, Brian. What's the mean think
is overrated? Overrated? Is?

Speaker 2 (07:51):
Uh? I guess I'll go with going out on on
peak nights, on like Friday day night, because let me
let me tell you kids something.

Speaker 1 (08:05):
I'm tired.

Speaker 2 (08:06):
Yeah yeah, and I just I don't got it anymore.

Speaker 1 (08:10):
I'm washed. And even though look we both come from
like the La beat maker electronic rock see like you know,
live music seat in LA. We've been to many shows
laying with questionable venues. But you recently went to a
show that started at eleven pm, and word, it sounds
like it broke you. The doors were an electic I think,

(08:32):
I think.

Speaker 2 (08:33):
I've officially given up. So I went out to this.

Speaker 3 (08:35):
Uh.

Speaker 2 (08:36):
I went out to see it in an electronic music
recital and the doors didn't open until eleven PM. And
I was like, oh, this was I was thinking in
the back of my mind that this was some sort
of mistake and I was like, no, I'm all right,
I've done this a zillion times. And you know, I'm

(08:58):
at home. It's like, you know, nine ten pm, and
I'm like, I'm just like wandering around fully.

Speaker 1 (09:04):
Kid.

Speaker 2 (09:05):
I'm like, well, it's only like an hour to I
can leave for this place.

Speaker 1 (09:11):
And it's weird when like you're up in a time
period when normally like I'm in bed or asleep or
getting like or I'm high watching TV or something not
like about to leave that like getting ready to leave.

Speaker 2 (09:23):
It's a weird time for me to leave the house.
And it's almost as soon as I got there, I
was looking for a place to sit down.

Speaker 1 (09:32):
And yeah, it's just that you're very old. That's why
I get the bottle service stuff, you know, like, uh,
not that I would ever do it, but the human
need as you get older to just sit down, you know,
like and and I think that's where they got people.
And a lot of these clubs they know older people.
They might have a little more money to spend, but

(09:53):
I'm sorry, I can't spend twelve hundred dollars on one
bottle of Stoley. Yeah.

Speaker 2 (09:58):
It's like I thought of maybe do it, but it's
it was just me. Yeah, how long did you go?

Speaker 1 (10:03):
How long did you last till you said the like,
no such thing went up? At what time?

Speaker 2 (10:08):
Like I made it like a little over three hours.
So I left the little after too. And that was
the thing. This place was just starting to get popfing
to his Yeah, you're like, no, I can't. I don't
get it anymore. I'm washed, all right.

Speaker 1 (10:26):
My overrated wireless headphones M not that. Like I enjoy
the wireless headphones that I wear, but I don't like
the emphasis on wireless headphones to the point that most
new tech devices that have some kind of audio playback
function have no fucking headphone port. Like everyone is presumed
to be having to use AirPods or wireless headphones.

Speaker 2 (10:50):
Or some shit.

Speaker 1 (10:50):
This also comes up all the time when like I
have older relatives, like they get a new computer and
they're like, there's no headphone whole thing in here for
the what I do. And you're like, I know, talk
to fucking Tim Apple and the rest of these people
who were just trying to do every like get rid
of the damn air the fucking headphone port. They want
us all buying everything wireless. But again, what is my

(11:14):
question is, technologically speaking, what is the disadvantage of having
that trust the eighth inch port available as a redundancy.

Speaker 2 (11:22):
Well, the issue is that wireless headphones are so lucrative
that they don't want to they don't want to sell.

Speaker 1 (11:32):
You anything, yeah, the cheap shit anymore.

Speaker 2 (11:35):
Well, it's just like it's a really it was always
an interesting move to me to just outright, you know,
they moved they removed headphone jacks from phones, yea, and
then you know, here comes this wave of wireless headphones
and now with the big over ear you know, like
your Bow's or your Sony's, they've removed the the the

(11:56):
eighth inch jack from that. So now you don't even
have the option of using them passively.

Speaker 1 (12:01):
Even the new generations of those don't even have the
fucking yes.

Speaker 2 (12:05):
Some like I bought a pair of Sennheisers that still
have yeah where you can plug it in with a
wire or USB. But they've really been trying to lock down,
like you are going to buy headphones every two fucking
years because we say so, and it's pretty diabolical.

Speaker 1 (12:22):
I have AirPods from twenty nineteen that I have not
they're they're they're not looking, They're not great.

Speaker 2 (12:29):
Yeah, that battery life is gonna be sure, life is
dog shit.

Speaker 1 (12:32):
One of them crackles unless I like beat the shit,
like I have to like fucking smack it and then
it stops crackling. I should just get in my place,
because I think you can still. But I was so
into headphones growing up that like I always knew it's
like this is a pair that I can fucking use
forever or at least a very very long time. And yeah,
with everything being wireless or needing like internal electronics or

(12:52):
batteries to align it now, it's just.

Speaker 2 (12:54):
Yeah, that's that's the thing. Like headphones are they are
an electro mechanical device that really should last you like years,
maybe decades. Like I'm wearing HD six hundreds by Sandheisers.
These were they put these out in nineteen ninety seven, right,

(13:15):
and they still sell them today, and that you can
and that's them across the room.

Speaker 1 (13:20):
You know, And that's the problem. I'm sure there's people
like in these boardrooms being like, yeah, man, like these
things just last too long. So maybe only persons maybe
buying one at most two pair over their lifetime.

Speaker 2 (13:29):
Because when you think about it, the thing that would
wear out on your headphones that made you have to
get a new pair was the wire would break. It
would almost never be the actual driver or maybe the
arm or something like that.

Speaker 1 (13:41):
Yeah, yeah, exact.

Speaker 2 (13:41):
The headphones are the playback of the headphones. I've never
had a headphone break like where the speaker broke. Yeah,
I can't think of a time that unless they got
like wet or something like physically damage it some other way.

Speaker 1 (13:54):
Anyway, So this is the old head headphone hour where
we complain about late starts to music recitals and the
fact that where'd that eight eighth inch port go? All right,
let's take a quick break and we'll be right back
to talk about what was trending over the weekend. Because
my god, man, yeah, fucking so many things happened. All right,

(14:15):
we'll be wrecky and we're back. And I think the
big thing that we must talk about immediately because we
didn't we weren't able to record our response to the

(14:36):
debate was the presidential debate that took place at the
end of last week, which was I would say probably
one of the greatest performances I have seen from Joe Biden,
and I am heartened to know that he is going
to be our nominee in the election. He absolutely nailed it.

(14:57):
I didn't watch the debate, but based on what but
I heard Joe Biden say about him, I believe that
he won. Oh god, now, I can't even fucking pretend.
It was so painful to watch. I immediately got texts
from people this second he started speaking, People are like, oh, no, no, no,

(15:20):
the Emperor has no nothing.

Speaker 2 (15:23):
I didn't see it, but I did see a very
illustrative clip on Reddit of Joe Biden in a debate
in twenty nineteen and Joe Biden, Oh my god, don't
even yeah side it blew all my hair off. Yeah yeah,
I was like, holy shit, that's terrifying. This dude is

(15:45):
a different person.

Speaker 1 (15:46):
I'll play This was one of the moments that a
lot of people were talking about when I think it
really was just visibly clear just how old Joe Biden
is and how much trouble he was having just sort
of putting your answer together. So for those of you
who have heard it, I'm sorry to put this back
in your ears again. But for those who maybe had

(16:09):
just anecdotally heard how bad it was, here's an answer
that Joe Biden was talking about healthcare. I think all those.

Speaker 3 (16:17):
Things we need to do, childcare, elder care, making sure
that we continue to suppent strength in our healthcare system,
making sure that we're able.

Speaker 2 (16:24):
To His voice is already he's unintelligible.

Speaker 1 (16:29):
It's very difficult. He's very raspy.

Speaker 3 (16:31):
Every single solitary person eligible for what I've been able
to do with the with the COVID, dealing with everything.

Speaker 1 (16:43):
We have to do with even Trump's looking at him.

Speaker 3 (16:49):
We finally beat medicare.

Speaker 1 (16:51):
Thank your President. Oh no, no, no, that was really
like the fact that he was even able to do
like the office, like Jim looking into.

Speaker 2 (17:00):
Camera kind of m yeah, see this, what was that?

Speaker 1 (17:04):
You see this? Then there was another question he had
about abortion and he somehow spun it into like like
immigrants killing people. It was a really, really poor performance.
It was a disaster. Apparently there was a debate watch
party that like had Doug Emhoff, who is Kamala Harris's husband, JB. Pritzker,

(17:26):
Gretchen Whitmer, Andy Basheer. There was also apparently Rob Reiner
was there was quote screaming about losing a few a
few answers into the debate, and Jane Fonda had tears
in her eyes. Oh my fucking god. So, yeah, that
is this your king?

Speaker 2 (17:47):
I guess so.

Speaker 1 (17:48):
But a lot of people were calling basically on the
Democrats to replace him with quite literally anyone, and even
like the New York Times editorial board, the loudest voices
that we kept hearing were putting out Governor Gretchen Whitmer
from Michigan or Gavin Newsom from California. Those are like
the easiest first answer things you think of. I think

(18:10):
a Whitmer is probably helps if you've become so cynical
about like Muslim and Arab voters in Michigan, about what's
happening in Gaza, They're like, well, she can get the
turnout that might offset the people that are so disaffected
by this administration's policies as it relates to Gaza. But
I mean, just seeing the energy out there, you're like,

(18:31):
holy cow. And they from the beginning, so many people
were like, this guy is old, he's appeal to younger
voters who you really want to energize a campaign is
just not there. But everyone insisted all the time, remember
there will always be people been like, oh, I've been
talking to the president. He is sharp, he is fantastic. Meanwhile,

(18:53):
we're seeing clips of him like where he's slowing down
a little bit, not quite giving the most concise answers
as he could. And yeah, I mean, like the Democrats
really completely fucking they're just revealing why I think there's
so much criticism of how they're doing things, because they
can't even respond to something like this without like immediately

(19:14):
attacking people being like Joe Biden did great, We're gonna
be fine. And it's just like now the you know,
the polls again are nothing really indicative of much, but
in terms of people's opinions right now now almost forty
or no forty six percent of Democrats are now saying
Biden should not be running for president anymore.

Speaker 2 (19:34):
Yeah, it's a bad, bad, bad look on both sides
of the aisle. But I mean just this is just
it's just real depressing that this is where we're at
and these are what are considered our most viable options, right,
It's just like, yeah, it's just being stuck in that

(19:55):
room of like, well, well we have to go with
someone who could win in yeah, not what will not
what war? Like, what's your platform is? Or it's just
this isn't democracy to me, where you're sort of forced
into these really unfavorable like decisions that you have to
make of like, well I have to put aside all

(20:16):
my you know, ideals to win this horse race.

Speaker 1 (20:22):
It's it's I think it's just absolutely it's so cynical
for Democrats like this, like this election is the most
important election of our lives.

Speaker 2 (20:32):
Democracy is on I'm not going to be voting on platforms.
I'm just going to be voting on the horse I
think will.

Speaker 1 (20:37):
Be the fastest vote on Democracy is on the line.
But if democracy, if things are that important and existential
to us, and you're so like and then this is
the guy who's going to go into the fight for
America is the soul of America's is quote unquote democracy.
You immediately like, bro, that's that's who you're that's the
fighter you're picking and street fighter.

Speaker 2 (21:00):
Yeah, this is your champion.

Speaker 1 (21:02):
This dude, kid, what well? I thought I thought the
stakes were hot. Uh okay, but yeah, and I think
aim in Ismael, who's a former guest who comes on
the show pretty frequently, he wrote a piece in Slate
we about saying, like, you know, just the idea to
keep forcing this uh this option down people's throats without

(21:23):
actually considering what people are asking for, as people, you know,
as potential democratic voters, are saying this is what we're
interested in. What will you do to earn my vote?
Rather than being like, this is fucking what you got.
Do you want democracy to fucking die? I don't want
to fucking hear anything else about it.

Speaker 2 (21:38):
Yeah. The rhetoric around it is so like it's it's
it's so aggressive, and it's it's like if you say
something to the contrary of like, oh, I don't want
to vote for him because his policies are bad, and oh.

Speaker 1 (21:51):
Do you want democracy to die?

Speaker 2 (21:53):
No?

Speaker 1 (21:53):
I don't. What I'm saying is I would prefer someone
else can is that okay? Or do you or can
you get him to maybe change some things about his
platform that might make me more open rather than being like, well,
if you don't, you know, your fucking grandma and your
favorite pets are going to be killed by Donald Trump,
So yeah, is that what you want? No, But I

(22:14):
think I think we're fundamentally I think we're fundamentally not
understanding how this works. And obviously a lot of people
who look at America's politics with sober ezs are like, look,
this is never really a true democracy in that sense.
But even in the sense of trying to get like
just in like a wanting people to like you sort
of sense, you kind of got to listen to what

(22:34):
people are asking for and then you kind of show
that so then they go, oh, okay, there's that person
I can support. But yeah, we will see what happens.
I think, you know, apparently Jill Biden and Hunter Biden
are the ones that have been like you gotta stay in,
you gotta stay in. I don't think so no, And

(22:55):
also like it was really uncomfortable, how like after the
eight Jill Biden was sort of like gassing Joe up
about like how well he did, even though clearly like
the chirons that were running like a at the end
of the debate on every news channel were like DEM's
panicking over that bike debate performance. This is what Joe
Biden says to Joe on stage. Jo, you did such

(23:20):
a great job.

Speaker 3 (23:21):
You answered every question, you knew all the.

Speaker 1 (23:28):
Let me ask the crowd what did Trump do?

Speaker 2 (23:33):
Oh my god.

Speaker 1 (23:35):
This is called encouraging someone to death.

Speaker 2 (23:37):
Yeah, it's she had the same energy as like a
preschool teacher.

Speaker 1 (23:44):
You did such a great job. Here's one Graham cracker,
you and your forehead. Here's a gold star, you do
all the facts. Here's some goldfish crackers. You did it. Yay, Okay,
here's your little diploma, and now keep it go. I
mean also then, like when you see this, you're like,
this is just a family that's hell bent on holding
onto their power. Like they could give a rat's ass

(24:06):
about what the outcome is of this election. They just
don't want to be the people saying like, ah, we
can't do it anymore. So yeah, very inspiring, very inspiring.
We'll see what happens. I was I was telling a friend,
I'm like, I don't know how you're gonna like, obviously,
there are people who are going to vote for Joe
Biden no matter what. But for anybody who is like
like needing a better reason, he better start giving some

(24:29):
kind of reason, like you better start making it rain
social spending or some shit, or or he'll do the
thing that he promises and it doesn't happen.

Speaker 2 (24:36):
I'm calling it right now. Well I called it a
couple months ago actually, but I feel like he's going
to start piping up and saying the things that people
want to hear much closer to the election, so that
it's fresh in everyone's mind that, oh, I do actually
want to cease fire now, right, and whatever the fuck
else he can come up with to to you know,

(24:57):
curry favor with voters.

Speaker 1 (24:59):
Yeah.

Speaker 2 (25:00):
Yeah, I feel I feel like he's just waiting, like
he just like, there's no way he doesn't know what
people want to fucking hear.

Speaker 1 (25:06):
He needs a meet the Graham's level red button track
that he can drop on people to completely change the
narrative and then follow it up with not like us.

Speaker 2 (25:17):
I just feel like, in like September October, he's gonna
like start piping up about stuff.

Speaker 1 (25:23):
Well, yeah, it's very early but again, like when you
have these kinds of performances that now it's fully like
the debate or the rhetorically, this is exactly where the
Republicans want to be, is to just be like the
guy's old, the guys old, the guys old, the guys old,
the guys old, the guys old, the guys old, the
guy's old. And yeah, so we'll see. I don't think
heads are gonna roll, uh in terms of like his

(25:45):
at like Biden's advisors or anything really happening in the DNC, but.

Speaker 2 (25:49):
We shall see.

Speaker 1 (25:52):
Let's also talk about the Supreme Court, because they have
continued to be trashed through the end of last week.
They just ruled this morning Monday, uh that Trump does
actually have some form of absolute immunity for official acts
while in office. The Court didn't agree with Trump's like
absurdly broad definition. But again, this is such a blatant

(26:14):
act of meddling and is clearly a moment where as
Justice Katanji Brown Jackson said, the seeds of absolute power
have been planted. So now yeah, so now this the
decision basically sends this case back to the lower court,
where District Judge Tanya Chutkin can hear arguments over again

(26:35):
where they're going to have to decide what actually constitutes
an official act by the former president. So talking to
the DOJ about overturning the election is protected by his
immunity in this case. But the Court again wasn't really
defining what our technically official acts. So we will see
what Judge Shutkin has to say for Special Counsel Jack

(26:57):
Smith's case. This means that the case, the scope of
the case will probably change, and Justice Sodamayor's dissent is
really fucking I mean, this is part of it, as
she obviously, like most people, were disturbed by what the
conservative justices did on the bench. Quote. When the president
uses his official powers in any way, under the majority's reasoning,

(27:19):
he will now be insulated from criminal prosecution. Orders the
Navy's Sealed Team six to assassinate a political rival, Immune
organizes a military coup to hold onto power. Immune takes
a bribe in exchange for a pardon, Immune Immune Immune Immune.
Let the president violate the law, let him exploit the
trappings of his office for personal gain, Let him use
his official power for evil ends, because if he knew that,

(27:42):
he may one day face liability for breaking the law.
He might not be as bold and fearless as we
would like him to be. That is the majority's message today.
Even if these nightmare scenarios never play out, and I
pray they never do, the damage has been done. The
relationship between the president and the people he serves has
shifted irrevocably. In every use of official power. The president

(28:02):
is now a king above the law.

Speaker 2 (28:05):
Awesome, Yeah, that's great.

Speaker 1 (28:07):
I don't know. Now, like on the internet now everyone's like, well,
I guess Joe Biden would that now, you know, do
whatever you've got to do, baby, because they just ruled
that you can do you know, official acts are protected
and you are immune. So we still haven't heard officially
what the White House have said about this decision. But yeah,
I mean, like, my god, at this point, maybe you

(28:28):
can just create some vacancies on the Supreme Court bench
because maybe that can.

Speaker 2 (28:32):
Be within your manager on them or something.

Speaker 1 (28:34):
I don't know. Yeah, yeah, yeah, come through. I'm doing
a pet adoption that the I love to have you
guys over. Just check this out. Is that a diar
rule from Game of Thrones?

Speaker 2 (28:45):
Yeah?

Speaker 1 (28:46):
Pretty cool, right? They thought they were mythical, so then
also aside from that, the Supreme Court also concluded that
January sixth writers did not quote obstruct or impede the
congressional proceeding to certify the election, in a six to
three decision that broke down ideological lines. Hm hmm. Interesting again,

(29:06):
everyone's like, this is oh wow, holy shit, this is
like unbelievable that. But they've again gone to a more
textual reading of the law to basically be like, well,
you know, in this case, it's like didn't technically destroyed
documents or something like that, So can we really call it.

Speaker 2 (29:23):
Which is false? I literally have this footage everywhere of
them destroying documents.

Speaker 1 (29:29):
Well like the ones that they were using to certify
the exos documents. Yeah yeah, yeah, that's so. That's all good,
and that obviously may have an effect on what's happening
with Trump's legal predicaments as well. And as we touched
on last week, they also made it legal for, you know,
to bribe government officials if you call it a gratuity

(29:51):
and do it after the fact, not before, because that's shady.

Speaker 2 (29:55):
Yeah they get tips now too, It's great, Yeah.

Speaker 1 (29:58):
Yeah, yeah, exactly exactly. They overturned the Chevron doctrine, which
essentially made courts defer to federal agencies in legal dispute
where there's any ambiguity. So you know, if there's like
an EPA case that's talking about like systems to combat
pollution or whatever, you know, the judge would normally have

(30:18):
to defer to what the agency was defining as a
system or whatever or whatever, like the ambiguity was in
a language. Because also when you write these laws, you
need some wiggle room to be able to adapt things
for the future. But in this instance, this is giving
judges power to interpret those things, which is very dangerous
considering that the challenge to chevron deference is basically quote

(30:42):
part of an extensive campaign by industry and their allies
to unravel federal authority to regulate food safety, clean air,
clean water, protections from consumer fraud, and more. The stakes
for people's lives are profound in legal disputes over ambiguous statutes.
Chevron says again, judges, within reason, ought to defer to

(31:04):
federal agencies understanding of those statutes. So yeah, today this
is someone from the Southern Environmental Law Center said, quote,
today's ruling sidelines the role of agency expertise and instead
shifts power to judges who do not have the expertise
of agency staff who live and breed the science, financial principles,
and safety concerns that federal agencies specialize in. So there's that,

(31:28):
and then they criminalized basically being unhoused. We mentioned this
Grant's past case when Rhiannon came on talking about Supreme
Court decisions. But yeah, again six ' three broke in
favor of the really fucked up regressive way of even
looking at what a person is or what they can do,
which is saying that now the people cannot be sleeping

(31:52):
outside and local governments can now criminalize people for being
in encampments. Jisodamyra, So yeah, exactly. I mean, it's already
so hostile, and it's just so bizarre to be like, well,
it's illegal to be a sleep outside even though you
live in this country where our rules are created as such,
where some people that's the only option they have, and

(32:16):
we also have again, but we're at court, we have
no you know, interest in how to remedy that specific part.
But given all that, we do think that it should
be criminal to be unhoused. Essentially, so a lot of
a whole lot of bullshit going down with making a
big push. I mean, it's just again even with this,

(32:37):
like it's so unnecessarily cruel, and it also goes against
all the fucking evidence that shows that criminalizing being unhoused
does not work. And if for people, for all the
fiscal conservatism that is that exists out there, it's also
it's cheaper to actually find ways to get people housed

(32:58):
than to just have this endless cycle of like criminalizing
unhoused people.

Speaker 2 (33:03):
I mean, I think you're being way too charitable with this,
Like no one's trying to do the right thing here.

Speaker 1 (33:10):
No, no, no, but I'm saying, but I think, but
it's important that we know what these truths are and
how everything disregards all of that, Like obviously I understand
that there's no interest in doing that, but the facts
are still there that it's actually it's all the better
option is always to actually sort out the problem fiscally, socially,

(33:31):
all of that. It's not because it's because someone has
an eye sore about their property values because someone is
unhoused living near them. But yeah, it's a cruel world
we live in. It's a very cruel world. In an
even crueler country. So let's take another break. We'll come
back and at least we can talk about the new

(33:53):
Mark Wahlberg joint directed by Mel Gibson right after this,
and we're back weird. So is Mark Wahlberg?

Speaker 2 (34:13):
Oh hell yeah, ro staying preyed up in everything, dude.

Speaker 1 (34:17):
So he The trailer just dropped for this new movie,
Flight Risk, which is a new Mark Wahlberg action thriller
directed by none other than Mel Gibson. It's set entirely
in an airplane, and like, at first, I was like,
is this is Could this actually be something to do

(34:37):
with his nine to eleven fantasies, because like the blog line,
you're not sure. It says, quote a pilot transports an
air marshal accompanying a fugitive to trial. As they cross
the Alaskan wilderness, tension sore and trust is tested as
not everyone on board is who they seem. And I
was like, oh shit, is he gonna like fight someone?
Like is he the cop or whatever? Because as we

(34:58):
all know, he famously said he was supposed to be
on one of those planes on nine to eleven and
if he was on there, it wouldn't he said quote
if I was on that plane with my kids, it
wouldn't have went down like it did. There would have
been a lot of blood in that first class cabin.
And then I'm saying, Okay, where are we gonna land?
But I said, Okay, we're gonna land somewhere safely. Don't worry,

(35:19):
say he lo to your mother for me, and then
he later obviously apologized because they're like, what the fuck
are you talking about, dude. So the movie turns out
is not him fighting terrorists to reverse nine to eleven,
even though the description doesn't even imply that.

Speaker 2 (35:35):
Yeah, I thought it was going to be like Passenger
for fifty seven with a white guy or something.

Speaker 1 (35:41):
Yeah, yeah, apparently Mark Wahlberg he's the pilot who's actually
a hit man trying to kill his passenger, which is
played by Toafer Grace from TOF a seventies show. Yeah,
and the air Marshall Michelle Dockery. So but he also,
I don't know, man, he's I don't know why he
had to be bald. There was a moment where he's

(36:02):
wearing a hat and then his hat gets blown off
and then you see like how like his male powdern
baldness and I'm like.

Speaker 2 (36:07):
Wow, Bro, yes.

Speaker 1 (36:11):
To me.

Speaker 2 (36:12):
Seeing Mark Wahlberg with that with his hairline just blown
them completely back, being.

Speaker 1 (36:19):
Like, hey, I'm a wacky hit man pilot. Bro.

Speaker 2 (36:23):
I'm like, why why did he have to be bald?

Speaker 1 (36:26):
Yeah? I do, I you know. Mel Gibson like, God,
I can't remember the last What was the last thing
he was in that I saw? What's that was that
he was in Daddy's home? What was that one thing
he did with Mark Wahlberg?

Speaker 2 (36:41):
Oh, I don't remember. The last thing I saw him
in as an actor was Dragged Across Concrete where he
played a shitty cop, and I was like, appropriate, appropriate fasting.
I'm not gonna say it.

Speaker 1 (36:54):
Makes sense for him.

Speaker 2 (36:55):
He could have gotten someone else, But I mean, if
you want a piece of shit grizzled visit of a cop,
there is not a bad choice.

Speaker 1 (37:03):
Aside from this specific film, we haven't what was the
last air air like big airplane thriller movie we had
that really caught caught us all.

Speaker 2 (37:13):
It's it's kind of a I don't want to say
it's a dead genre, but I remember in the nineties
there were a lot of airplane movies. Shit going down
on airplane Air Force one past fifty seven, all this stuff,
and I'm it's just so I fell after out of
favor for some reason in the early two thousands, and
I'm not sure why anyway.

Speaker 1 (37:37):
I mean, flight plan was two thousand and five flight plan?
Which one was Jody Foster?

Speaker 2 (37:43):
Oh, I missed that one. That's the one is And no,
Red Eye doesn't really count with Sylvia Murphy because half
of that is not in the plane. Yeah.

Speaker 1 (37:54):
Well, look, studios love a contained thriller because you only
have to pay for one set. How bottle bottle movies? Yeah, yeah,
industry contained thriller. We call them contained thrillers. They're contained
to one.

Speaker 2 (38:07):
Yeah, like the phone booth.

Speaker 1 (38:09):
Yeah yeah, yeah, exactly. So I don't know, boo. I
wanted to see Mark Wahlberg reverse nine to eleven in
an alternate universe.

Speaker 2 (38:18):
Yes, I will not be. I will not be seeing
this in the theater. I will be stealing this from
the internet. And yeah, because like Mel Gibson, Mel Gibson
is a he's a weird director. Like when they showed
his pre from the director of Apocalypto, I'm like that
movie was highly inaccurate. Uh, one of one of one

(38:42):
of the wildest endings where I'm like, this is this
is so historically inaccurate, but you also made these people
learn Mayan, right, it's just like weird choices. Hacksaw Ridge
was terrible. The christ Man Passion of the Christ was terrible,
Like all of his movies are terrible in unique in

(39:04):
special ways where it's like you can see the effort,
but it's all yeah, weird places. Yeah exactly, You're like,
that's the Patree, Like the Patriot is just like mind
blowingly stupid.

Speaker 1 (39:17):
I forgot about that.

Speaker 2 (39:18):
Yeah, he's just he's a very strange director.

Speaker 1 (39:22):
Yeah, strange director and a bad man. And then the
BET Awards were on Sunday. There was a big like
Usher had a huge tribute thing where everybody so many
people were like dedicating little performances to his songs over
the years. To start off with Childish Gambino doing an
auto tuned you don't have to call not not my favorite,

(39:43):
I'd have to say, but you know, honoring the Atlanta
legend himself, he gave a speech that got like was
really censored a ton. I know that he was like swearing.
But then also it seemed like there were like a
lot of the censoring happened when he was talking about
it was like the Year of the Father. I have
haven't seen the whole Like a lot of people posted
from inside the amphitheater or the theater the uncensored speech.

(40:06):
And he was talking about how he'd been through some
bullshit in the industry, and I'm not sure what he
was alluding to, but I'm very curious what is going
on there. I'm sure we'll know more than you. Had
Will Smith performing what did he performed like a new
track called you Can Make It? And he's like, h
it's weird. The set he's on. Jam our writer point

(40:28):
out it looks like the cover of like the Dianetics book.
Like it's just like a like a flaming volcano, like
where maybe betans are like, I like that a.

Speaker 2 (40:36):
White dude is reporting on the bet Awards.

Speaker 1 (40:38):
Sorry, yeah, he had to. I mean he knows, he
knows what the mandate is, the scope of the show.
But then like in the lyrics, it's just like it's
all about his like comeback. There's lyrics that say, the
darker the hell you gotta endure, the brighter the heaven
you get to enjoy, the harder the fall. The higher
you soar. God opened the window when the devil closed

(41:00):
the door. Believe me, they tried to bleed. Will Smith
in the rear View, I see adversity was the gift?
Oh Will that sounds like a man do this sounds
like a greeting card someone buys you, like when something
bad happens and you're like, hey, adversity was the gift?

Speaker 2 (41:17):
Wasn't it? Wasn't it, folks.

Speaker 1 (41:18):
Then the other weird part was that in the in
memoriam section, like when you know you've had people like
Carl Weathers, Willie Mays, Richard Roundtree, like you know, one
of the Isisley brothers, Lewis Gossi Junior, like passing away.
Then a card shows up for O. J. Simpson in
the in memoriam and even the audience was like, huh,

(41:39):
I mean, I okay, I get it. But technically he
was acquitted. But he definitely was black culture where it
was like, come on, man, for all the shit that
we've seen people get away with. But yes, he's a cute,
isn't it. I Mean in other award shows, like when
you've been a q A murder, you kind of get

(42:02):
left out of the end memoriam like Robert Blake was
at the.

Speaker 2 (42:05):
Yeah, but Robert Blake for sure did that ship.

Speaker 1 (42:09):
And OJ only kind of for sure.

Speaker 2 (42:12):
Like I'm like he's involved somehow, but I can't prove it.

Speaker 1 (42:15):
But whether he did it for real, I don't know.

Speaker 2 (42:19):
Look, it's like OJ was such a was such a
big deal, like even like for you know, for me
as a kid like I did. I never got to
see him play ball, but I was a big naked
gun fan, and you know, like I get it. I

(42:40):
get why he's there, but it is you're just like
you can't help.

Speaker 1 (42:44):
But go yeah. Yeah.

Speaker 2 (42:48):
I mean like, look you're putting on your tongue on
your shirt collar like oh yeah. It's also being jump
scared by OJ is never fun. No, no one, No
one wants to no, no, Yeah, it's a.

Speaker 1 (43:04):
Okay, it's just a wild it's a wild that's a
wild moment. That's a wild, wild moment. And I get him.
I remember being I remember when they were about to
read the verdict. I remember like being with like with
my grandpa and being like I hope he's not guilty.

Speaker 2 (43:18):
I hope he's like bro, I had such a wild
experience with that I was in fifth grade, right, and
I happened to have been going to this majority white
private school. So at home, it's just black people. How
black people reacted to this in La right right at school,

(43:39):
it was just white people, and it was like rich
white Like I went to school with like like the
Hurts ran at car kid and Jamie Lee Curtis's kid
and stuff like that, and there were little white girls
crying when they got the news, and this was like
and you know then there's like nobody had Yeah, It's

(44:02):
like when the news dropped, it was just like they
might as well have been airing it in the class.
That's how it was. That's how huge it was and
how the situation was. Yeah, and it was just white
wild for me at that age to see that level
of like that split in the city of like, yeah,

(44:23):
white folks were upset that day. It was like it
was like twenty sixteen all over again. I've never seen
that many like white people crying since that elected.

Speaker 1 (44:32):
But then yeah, but then it looked like when people
were in the streets in twenty twenty when Trump lost,
was kind of like what other parts of LA looked like.
It was.

Speaker 2 (44:40):
It was it was a wild formative experience that OJ trial,
because it's like they preempted all the cartoons. I was
like nine or ten or something like that. It's like
you couldn't watch Power Rangers, you couldn't watch Big Bad Beetleborgs,
you watch reruns and Married with Children. It was just
OJ for Like, what how long was that trial?

Speaker 1 (44:59):
Like a year?

Speaker 3 (45:00):
Here?

Speaker 1 (45:00):
Yeah, at least because the verdict came out in October
of nineteen ninety five. So yeah, that's just that's just
a weird. Look, I don't know, just like I get
it from the significance standpoint, because obviously he's out, he's
an outsized figure. But it's like the memorium part is

(45:21):
very just like come on now, come on now, but
we don't.

Speaker 2 (45:24):
We didn't didn't. That didn't have to happen.

Speaker 1 (45:28):
But anyway, here we are a strange world we live in,
and we only have even stranger things.

Speaker 2 (45:35):
Ahead of us.

Speaker 1 (45:36):
That's not a promo for the new season of Stranger.

why I hit the bank account. He's like, look, let
