11/10/2018
More
This week is Veteran's day, and we want to thank Jason… unfortunately, he didn't show. But more importantly: how to talk to people about abortion--especially those with whom we disagree.

In current events, we discuss Pope Francis's threat to abdicate the Andorran co-monarch if they legalize abortion. And, of course, the election results: how bad was it? Also, Asia Bibi's...

Dan goes into the controversy at Roncalli High School in...
