Dinner Table Politics


Dec 21, 2018

Abby is buried in finals, so her cousin Steven Prawitt joins Jim to discuss the Republican gamesmanship that's putting the country on the brink of another government shutdown. Jim tells his nephew how that didn't work out well for Newt Gingrich and the Republicans in '94, or for Ted Cruz and Mike Lee in 2011, and it won't help Trump get his wall in 2018, either.

Then Eliza joins the podcast to discuss how Christmas won the "War on Christmas" and how William Shatner's defense of "Baby, It's Cold Outside" probably isn't a good idea. Then, at the very end, Eliza tells everyone what the real reason for the season is. (Hint: She was born December 26th.)
