Rank #1: How Gay Is Pete Buttigieg?, Rep. Barry Hovis and the ‘Consensual Rape’, Guest Kulap Vilaysack

Podcast cover

This week, Bryan talks about former lawmaker and verified crap-spewer Don Boys’s blog post asking presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg just ‘how gay’ he is and the litany of misinformation and hateful rhetoric contained within. Then, Erin discusses comments by the similarly affected GOP Rep.

On a better note, the terrific Kulap Vilaysack stops by to talk about her new documentary ‘Origin Story,’ searching for her birth father, and her ever-evolving relationship with her mom.
