Join us for a full hour of news and analysis. We start with some news making the headlines and look at the number of abortions being performed in this country post-Roe. Did that number go up or down? We round out the hour by taking a look at the United Nations Climate Conference taking place in Morocco right now. What new proposals have popped up and is the real issue fixing the climate or centralizing power? Join us to find out!!
It’s that time of year. Our guest will dive deep into the history of Christmas and the customs that surround this beloved holiday.

Join us for a conversation designed to be witty, imaginative and wholly unique.
