The MPU gang celebrates their 300th episode with some memories from the past, then looks at the issues of the week, including violence against Asian Americans, the influx of unaccompanied minors at the border, staffers fired from the White House for smoking weed in their past, and the Snyder cut of Justice League.
This week’s MPU podcast marks the one year anniversary of the Covid crisis and lockdowns. The gang also looks at President Biden’s approval ratings, the competition for college admissions in the post-Covid era, the GOP’s assault on voting rights, where we are a year after the police shooting of Breonna Taylor, the Derek Chauvin trial, and the uproar over Harry and Meghan’s interview with Oprah.
This week the gang is joined by comedian Larry Nichols (aka Larry XL) to discuss Black History Month. Also covered: the big freeze that hit Texas and other states, the politics of energy, the passing of Rush Limbaugh, and ex-President Trump’s return to the public spotlight.
This week’s podcast looks at Rep. Margorie Taylor Greene, the Myanmar coup and what it means for the USA, the death battle between Reddit and hedge funds, and the one issue that seems to create true partisanship across the political spectrum.
This week the gang is joined by Sirius XM radio host Shaun Proulx as they look at the Biden inaugural, Amanda Gorman, the kickoff of the new administration, whether or not the senate filibuster should be abolished, and their personal experiences with the gun culture in America.

This week, the gang looks at the 2020 election results, how the world responded to Joe Biden’s win, and do a deep dive into what it means for the nation and the Democratic party.
