Weekly Roundup: A Johnson for Speaker

Brad and Dan use the bulk of this episode to introduce listeners to the Christian nationalism of new Speaker of the House Mike Johnson. They go over his right-wing record on abortion (near abolitionist), on LBGTQ rights (as homophobic as they come), on separation of church and state (doesn’t believe in it), and his understanding of where your rights come from (his God).

They also discuss updates on SCOTUS and Clarence Thomas, as well as Trump’s week in court – and the lawyers and allies who have flipped on him.
