Episode #991: Allison and Jamie discuss David Gregory, their terrible book marketing strategy, this being an option Allison didn't know about until now, the jury in the Cecily McMillan trial not knowing she could potentially serve seven years in prison, this homeless woman who faced the same charges as McMillan, but never received a trial, self-defense (with war crimes!), and the widespread fast food strikes scheduled for May 15.

Episode #990: Allison and Jamie talk about the fake left before discussing Occupy Wall Street protester Cecily McMillan being found guilty (and potentially facing seven years in prison) for defending herself from an officer who allegedly assaulted her, and how framing McMillan's act as The Crime of the Century distracts from police brutality. Then, Jamie doesn't know the words to the national anthem, the U.S. promises "aid" in search for the girls kidnapped by Boko Haram, and Vice-President Biden makes another maybe-gaffe, this time about mass deportations.
