Today’s very special episode is our 250th! To celebrate, we’ve assembled a compilation of some of our favorite moments over the past two and half years. If you’ve ever wanted to share the show to friends and family, this is the episode to do it. In this episode, we explain:
- What the show’s all about
- How liberal we are (or aren’t)
- Whether we talk about non-political stuff
- How Trump changed the show, what “Yodel Mountain” is, what #ClearAsKushner is
- How seriously we take ourselves
And much more!
Then, as always, it’s time for the answer to Thomas Takes The Bar Exam #112, which involved an angry drunken… murder (?) As always, remember to follow our Twitter feed (@Openargs) and like our Facebook Page so that you too can play along with #TTTBE!
None! If you’d like to have either of us as a guest on your show, drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
