After Jesse gets things off to a fantastic start with an uplifting story about dog feces, the hosts finally relent and discuss the Joe Biden/Tara Reade situation. Does this case reveal the limits of "believe women"? Of trying to pretend long-ago accusations can be hashed out apolitically? Then the hosts move on to Candace Owens and her tweet calling for her Michigan followers to defy the government, before the episode finishes with another story from Jesse, this one about his extremely unpleasant online run-in with Owens in 2016.
