EP. S2E48 — Content Hogs w/ Jon Lovett

Crooked Media’s Jon Lovett is a podcast host, TV writer, former presidential speechwriter… and Survivor superfan?! Who knew! In addition to Survivor, Jon talks with Ashley about the WGA strike, why it’s suddenly so hard to make a TV show about American politics, the insanity that is the show Mrs. Davis, and much more. Plus, Ashley gives Jon a taste of his own medicine and makes him defend some horrible hot takes.
