About this Episode

After a heated debate over Slack and hummus/Hamas, Jesse and Katie announce a repivoting of the podcast. Then they discuss a gas shortage that almost stranded Katie in an unmentionable hellhole and the careful, measured, polite reaction to a column by the incorrigible Liz Bruenig, who had the temerity to argue, grossly, that she loves her kids and is glad to be a mom.
