'Speed Dial,' Episode 27: "HaterNation"

Following a real whirlwind of a week, Ira and Doreen are back to address some things they've learned. The first being—you can't spell 'white nationalist' without The Nation! This episode addresses a piece published by the publication, in which a writer...critiqued both Ira and and Doreen. Their conversation places the article in the context of the pattern of more overt, leftist racism following the election of Trump. Next, Ira and Doreen find out they disagree on the whole Tomi Lahren and Trevor Noah peace summit. After that, a conversation about the similarities and differences between Donald Glover's two projects this year. Lastly, an honest and brave voicemail from a listener who's looking for freedom.
