Brad and Dan break down the revelations surrounding the Society for American Renewal, which according to the Guardian is “an exclusive, men-only fraternal order which aims to replace the US government with an authoritarian “aligned regime”, and which experts say is rooted in extreme Christian nationalism and religious autocracy. It includes Harvard grads, millionaire industrialists, the president of the Claremont Institute, financiers, and other upper-crust right-wing men (and they are all men).

In the second segment, they turn to more toxic masculine Christianity in the form of a call for violence and spiritual warfare from Oklahoma State Senator Dusty Deevers – an abortion abolitionist who is trying to outlaw pornography.

To finish the episode, the hosts discuss the tragic news about Nex Benedict’s death – the non-binary teenager who died by suicide after bullying at school.
