Sam and crew break down the biggest stories of the week, including GOP COVID relief failures, Joe Biden's veepstakes, and what to expect at the upcoming conventions. Sam and crew look into the GOP's strategy to blame Pelosi and the Democrats for the failure to pass relief measures for working Americans. Meanwhile, in New York, Andrew Cuomo gets epistemological when asked if he would be open to an independent investigation into the huge number of nursing home deaths during the COVID outbreak. Sam takes some phone calls before the Fun Half, including John from San Antonio's VP prediction.
And in the Fun Half: Ben Shapiro reads Cardi B lyrics and shares about his unfulfilling sex life, Donald Trump explains how Joe Biden can hurt God, callers share their struggles to access relief aid from states across the country, David Packman is up to something with his YouTube subscribers, and Sam and Matt explain Bret Weinstein's failures in reason--plus your calls and IMs!
