Show Notes

When we were kids: history ended, the Christian right launched an all out assault on the gains of the 1960s/70s, the liberals launched an all out assault on the gains of the New Deal/labor movement, and the left launched an all out assault on each others shopping choices. It sucked. 
The world was recreated in the dumbest and worst possible ways and we are going to let you listen to us talk about how it warped all of our brains.
