You've seen it. You've heard about it. But have you really thought about what the Alabama Waterfront Brawl means? JAG and TLeake are (FINALLY!) back to discuss the connections among a Trump rally, a seemingly race-based brawl and a fast-approaching 2024 major election and what it might tell us about where we are and where we may be headed in the United States.
Will a 90-day extension be enough to get the truth behind Clarence Thomas’ financials? JAG and TLeake debate the question of accountability for Supreme Court Justices. Article III of the Constitution states that Justices “hold their office during good behavior,” which means they have a lifetime appointment, except under extreme circumstances. JAG and TLeake debate whether Clarence Thomas will hold his office and maintain good behav...
The former President gets indicted. A newly famous actor gets arrested for domestic violence. Shocking or expected? JAG and TLeake explore these latest announcements in black and white (and gray).

President Biden tweeted: "She is safe. She is on a plane. She is on her way home." However, JAG...

Are you avoiding the internet and emails? Is social/media bombarding you with bad news? TLeake and JAG give their take on the not-so-stupid questions to ask regarding today's stress levels. Not ones to introduce a problem and not provide solutions, from increasing emotional intelligence to masturbation, listen in as TLeake and JAG discuss ways you can "get a grip" with old solutions to address today's new stressors.
Roe V. Wade, Gun Laws, Voting Rights; has the highest court in the land gone Rogue in its eagerness to rewrite federal law? JAG and TLeake discuss whether the current Supreme Court is so rogue that it could be considered a judicial coup.
JAG and TLeake offer an opportunity to step back (and a breath) to reflect on the concept of a "new normal" in light of the recent mass shootings (Buffalo, Uvalde, and several since). To "be strong," "push through," and not vote advocates of violence out, are we inadvertently normalizing an experience we shouldn't?

Is ______ a racist? Speaking of stupid questions, does that qualify? While JAG and TLeake ultimately conclude similarly, they discuss what you can gain from asking it. Listen as our hosts twist their minds around their first reflexive, recursive question: whether the stupid question is, indeed, a stupid question.
As the overturning of Roe V. Wade becomes more foreseeable, JAG and TLeake discuss whether the Supreme Court has (or specific Justices have) deceived us. While they manage to steal a few laughs, this is the most solemn No Stupid Questions Show yet as our hosts confront the seriousness of the first modern-day leak of a draft Supreme Court decision.
