Sick in a Box

ETrump's chaotic, bumbling response to the coronavirus pandemic alarms the country. Local and state leaders (and Bernie and Biden) fill the void. And everyone figures out how to act responsibilityto protectthe community while panic shopping and googling symptoms. We've canceled our live shows to be safe, so until we're on the other side of this, we're going to be experimenting with some new segments and finding ways to quiz and hear from listeners during the show. It's Lovett or Leave It: Back in the Closet. Special thanks to Paul Scheer, Rachel Bonnetta, and RachnaFruchbom for joining, and to the listeners who let me quiz them this week on their coronavirus prep.

New Hampshire, Don't F*ck This Up

EWhat a week. What a MESS. Pete's "undeniable victory" in Iowa becomes less undeniable and Senate Republicans (except for Mitt who we LOVE now) tell Trump he's above the law. Emily Heller joins to break down the Democratic debate in New Hampshire. Franklin Leonard talks about this Sunday's Oscars and how Hollywood is (and isn't) changing. And Louis Virtel's savant-like Oscar trivia skills are put to the TEST. Plus we manage to talk about Baby Nut, Hotel Lighting, Dua Lipa, and Netflix autoplay. At some point Jon sat on the floor and talked about going to the nurse's office in elementary school. Anyway it's been a week. Hope everyone took lots of pictures because that was the LAST Iowa caucus.

Iowa, Don't F*ck This Up

ERepublicans conspire to block witnesses and Iowans get ready to caucus like the country depends on it. LIVE from Iowa City, Jon is joined by filmmaker and activist Michael Moore, Iowa state auditor Rob Sand, Cedar Rapids Gazette columnist Lyn Lenz, and Linn County Supervisor Stacey Walker. They cover the latest on the trial, the primaries, and their perspective on how campaigns are faring on the ground. And we make time for Super Bowl ads, Brad Pitt's looks "hurting"his Oscar chances, and the difference between hot dish and casserole.
