4/14 Casual Friday! w/ Hasan Piker & Francesca Fiorentini

April 14, 2023

It’s a very special Casual Friday! Emma hosts Twitch streamer extraordinaire Hasan Piker to round up a crazy week in news.Then, Emma is joined by Francesca Fiorentini, host of The Bitchuation Room podcast! First, Emma runs through updates on Clarence Thomas’ corruption, Israel’s military escalation, the continued flood of anti-trans legislation in the US, Biden’s response to the abortion pill ruling, Ron DeSantis’ 6-week abortion ban, Dianne Feinstein’s replacement, and a potential Yemen ceasefire, before diving into Nebraska State Senator Machaela Cavanaugh’s emotional testimony as her filibuster in support of trans kids reaches its seventh week. Hasan Piker then joins as he draws parallels between himself and billionaire philanthropist Harlan Crow, takes on the absurdity of having Charles “the Bell Curve” Murray give a character endorsement, and dives into the recent leaking of US military secrets over a Discord argument. They also tackle the Taibbi-Musk falling out, before Emma is joined by Francesca Fiorentini to discuss Francesca officially putting the “birth” in “birthing person,”  Trump’s “Pudding Fingers” attack ad on DeSantis, updates on the Dominion case, and Candace Owens’ obsession with being the most fash of the fascists.

And in the Fun Half: Emma and Bradley tackle the coverage of a recent leak of US military secrets, as Glenn Greenwald and Tucker Carlson side with schooling your Discord kittens over the US national security state, as well as aligning arbitrary debate with conscientious whistleblowing, plus, your IMs!
