Why are we allowing the most flagrant liar in American politics to shamelessly Cameo-wash himself with direct-to-consumer content?

(Plus: farts in a jar and the ballad of the teacup Maltese.)

The comic, actor, and Daily Show correspondent/president shovels out content with the best of 'em. But he also believes in bombing onstage to learn the optimum level of failure. He believes in using anger to win over an audience — or to find a new favorite team, or to find love. Ronny Chieng believes. Also: watching thousands of hours of Patriots documentaries, torrenting "Around the Horn," dialing up NBA Live, getting Covid based on your fandom... and the best foul-mouthed Bill Belichick impersonation you've ever heard.

A fierce debate — about no less than the meaning of intelligence itself — has broken out in the world of football scouting, as star quarterback C.J. Stroud puts together one of the best rookie QB seasons ever... after bombing the new Wonderlic test. But can this S2 Cognition exam actually predict how your brain impacts athletic performance? Pablo puts himself to the ultimate test of mental agility, with a little help from Alex Smith — and with a LOT of expletives. Watch on YouTube: Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
No conference-championship weekend in the history of the College Football Playoff has higher stakes than the one upon us right now.

And we learn what actually happens, behind closed doors, as hordes of furious fans demand the favor of a cabal that might be more Office Space than Eyes Wide Shut.

What happens when restaurants become gas stations and farts disappear? You don't take food or fragrance for granted, especially around Thanksgiving. David Samson — host of Nothing Personal, gourmand, notorious lover of candy — didn't back down when Covid robbed him of his senses.

Johnny McEntee went viral before virality, as a trick-shot QB at UConn. He foresaw the rise of Donald Trump, while ordering him KFC on the campaign trail.

I was going to listen to this until I heard David Samson speak. I had to turn it off after that

I have to say Everybody Loves Raymond is a really good answer but the one I would have LOVED would be Two and a Half Men. It ran for a million years, it was supposedly the most watched comedy on TV, but I have NEVER met a single person who was passionate about it even watched it casually. It would be amazing if the alien algorithm told him “this is a popular show” but he is the first person to publicly admit to liking it.

I love the example of Taft because not only was he POTUS, but he was also Chief Justice of SCOTUS. He’s the only person to ever do that. He is the reason we have the Supreme Court building! As far as résumé’s go, it’s hard to top his titles. And yet the only thing most people know about him is he was fat. Now I do think part of that is because he wasn’t a very good president, but still.

I love feeling seen when other people describe their dreams. I also have dreams where I can fly, though it’s been a while. And I often have dreams where I’m driving a car from the back seat or even the roof and am scared of getting caught, or traffic in front if me is suddenly stopped and I am careening toward them in a car I can’t control. This seems to be my work stress dream.

The lack of privilege awareness that it takes for them to be like…why doesn’t EVERYONE have a personal fight trainer to help them work out? It’s mind bending.

This turned out to to be fascinating. I was truly impressed by the podcast's ability to be serious without being somber, to make a point while making me laugh. Nice work, Mr. Torre, and keep it up, Meadowlark Media.
