Corey Pein (@coreypein) joins us to discuss Elon Musk, white supremacists in Oregon, and more. Is the mess at Tesla evidence the public sector needs to step in and expropriate the green energy project? And what's with all the white nationalists in Pinochet t-shirts who've been invading Portland, OR? Pein breaks it down. Check out his new book, "Live, Work, Work, Work, Die: A Journey Into the Savage Heart of Silicon Valley."
Film Guy Matthew (@langdonboom) joins us to talk all things film. A roundtable on Boots Riley's "Sorry to Bother You" and Spike Lee's "BlacKkKlansman." Is Spike Lee too easy on the police?
