Description

Ahead of the election, we have stories about people trying to live in the unreality that defines this moment. Election officials combat a contagion among their very own workers; people who've never owned guns suddenly go buy them; and two women who allege they were sexually assaulted by the president compare notes.

What a sad partisan episode. If anyone is going to dispute or refuse to accept the results of this election, it will be TAM listening liberals who are living in a bubble hearing nothing but podcasts like this. How about a little context? What about an interview with Tara Reid (Biden's rape accuser) whose accusations are far more credible and substantiated? No, that would be way too objective for This American Life's brand of "journalism."
