We talked about:

— For no scientific reasons, the Trump administration will restrict fetal tissue research. (17:00)
— This is a strange way to wage an attack on Netflix over its abortion position. (21:50)
— These people are horrible at defending a televangelist’s private jet. (29:00)
— The Catholic Church has lobbyists. Guess what they’re lobbying for? (39:15)
— We know which Democratic candidate atheists prefer the most — and it’s not Joe Biden. (43:15)
