371: Janet Jackson, Congress Pays Its Own Harassment Lawsuits, Robot News, Italy Blocks Homophobia Survey
Throwing Shade #371 December 26, 2018
Guest Co-host Eliza Skinner joins Bryan again this week to talk Janet Jackson’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and more! First, they discuss the decision by Congress to make its members pay out of pocket for sexual harassment lawsuits and question why on earth they were ever allowed to do that in the first place. Plus, we get the latest in robot news before they get into the Italian government’s attempt to block the distribution of a survey meant to research homophobia, racism, and sexism for allegedly “promoting sexual fluidity.”
