Ross and Carrie March Against Vaccines (Part 1): Parents Call the Shots!

| 0 comments

Take a break from our Summer of UFOs to join us on a march into the controversial and often heartbreaking world of anti-vaccine activism. Ross and Carrie attend the Children's March for Humanity, a national event taking place at different locations across the country, to spread the word about the allegedly harmful effects of vaccinations. But are vaccines really so bad? We have the science right here. Plus, what anti-vaccine rally would be complete without a chair that beams EMF radiation into your blood, an anti-vegetarianism table, and a very expensive juice cleanse?

Goodness gracious, we’re really only a few days away from Great Balls of Fire!

And we’ve really solid feuds to look forward to ahead of the damnedest named PPV of the year: Braun Strowman vs. Roman Reigns, Brock Lesnar vs. Samoa Joe, Enzo vs. Big Cass.

What are our hopes? We can’t wait for you to find out!

Plus: New Japan Pro Wrestling held it’s first ever show in the United States. Chances are it will never be able to truly challenge the WWE, but what do we want from the world’s second biggest wrestling company as they expand stateside?

Main Event:

Is WWE going too far with it’s latest treatment of things like race and nationalism. Sure, the “evil foreigner” is a wrestling staple and Jinder Mahal and Rusev might not have seen the level of success they’ve currently attained without it. But sure it’s time to evolve it in some way shape or form, right?

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford and Mike Eagle.

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.

This week on One Bad Mother, maybe you can’t understand what Biz and Theresa are saying because they bit off more than they can chew. While choking on it, they wonder why this keeps happening. Is it that we don’t see parenting as work so we take on more as if we are starting with a clean plate only to discover that there was a cake hiding under the salad the whole time? Plus Biz would like time to stop, Theresa is in too deep and we talk to returning guest Tresa Edmunds about her new self care venture HavenTree Box.

Adam Ruins Everything Episode 30: Jackie Stevens Exposes the Bizarre World of Immigrations Courts and Detention Centers

| 0 comments

Jackie Stevens, a Political Theory Professor at Northwestern University, has seen first-hand how detention centers and immigration courts violate every assumption we have about how a fair justice system is supposed to work. Contrary to many people's assumptions, immigration courts are part of the executive branch, instead of the judicial branch like our other courts. That means they're not subject to the same due process, like having a jury and requiring public defenders. On the podcast Jackie describes how the system can even fail U.S. citizens; she tells the long and winding case of U.S. citizen Mark Lyttle who got trapped in the system and was erroneously deported to Mexico. Whatever your political stance may be, it's pretty clear this system fails not only the most vulnerable living in our country but even our very own citizens.

Adam is on Twitter @AdamConover and you can find past episodes and bonus content from the TruTV show at AdamRuinsEverything.com.

Produced by Shara Morris for MaximumFun.org.
