  • One of Dan's children came out as a non-binary member of the trans community
  • Michael Cohen pleads guilty to additional charges
  • Joe Rogan is... interesting - sometimes
  • We spend a while going over some listener feedback that happened to include a conspiracy theory about mobile devices and microwaves
