Erin talks about the offensive treatment of pregnant immigrants in ICE custody as well as the disappointing response on social media to Cardi B’s pregnancy. Screenwriter John August (Big Fish, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) joins to discuss his new book Arlo Finch in the Valley of Fire, his Gothic Cheddar font obsession, and the game he invented, “AlphaBirds.” Plus, a surprise guest stops by to explain why everyone ought to see a therapist.
