Episode #968: Jamie has a freak out and tries to flee the country, then calms down to talk with Allison about SCOTUS's decision to strike down overall campaign contribution limits, the Fort Hood shooting and mental healthcare, what kind of people the media decides to call (and not call) a terrorist, a new dire climate report that comes at a time when House Republicans fight for less climate research and the U.S. tries to stop India's solar policy, and finally how the Koch Brothers are quietly seeking to ban mass transit in Tennessee.

Also, Jamie and Allison interviews some new contributors (we're sorry).
