Began the show a bit on the conspiracy theorist running for office, in Robert F. Kennedy Jr. running for president and picking possibly Aaron Rodgers or Jesse “the Body” Ventura as his vice president. 

Then we got into (12:30) another candidate running for office in Eric Hovde, Republican for US Senate in Wisconsin. The controversy has been how “Wisconsin” is he, as we talked about in the past, but now he’s donating his salary if elected. So, we discussed how dumbed down these campaigns have been so far and if they’ll actually start talking about issues that affect people. 

In the second half of the show (24:00), we began with two Friday news dumps — one involving Boeing and another on Mike Pence not endorsing Donald Trump. But that led to a conversation about a TikTok ban, and how money in politics is affecting all of these things — Boeing making big contributions, Congress investing in TikTok competitors, a billionaire invested in TikTok looking to give money to Trump’s campaign. 

Ended the show (35:40) talking about New Belguim making a pizza flavored beer and then continued the conversation (37:30) about RFJ Jr. possibly picking Rodgers as his running mate.
