It’s just like old times! Because the boys are back in town, recording together in an actual studio, andpregaming with listener-provided booze. So…yeah, things were pretty rough going in…Sorry about that. We try to answer the age old question… A handful of some, maybe, constitutes a
So. Much. Moynsplaining.
Would pay extra for the spin off podcast “Fifth Column Directors Commentary”
I’m gonna pick up all those podcast bros on the downswing
“It’s not because you’re a woman, it’s because I’m a fucking asshole” 😂
I love it when you guys pre-game heavily. Reminds me of the early Fifth Column days when getting totally sloshed was par for the course.
I can’t wait to hear what the guys (and Matt) have to say about the Taibbi & Shellenberger allegedly getting “bodied” by Dems in Congress today. What an embarrassing time to be someone who holds even the faintest of respect for politicians.
Pre-gamed Fifth is the best Fifth
I love the 2:50 pm drop time!
I'm headed to Charleston, SC next week on a family vacation - any tips?
Oh shit, my alcohol actually got to y'all! Fucking FedEx was intent on delivering that bottle on a day no one from TFC was at the designated alcohols address, so glad it made it your way!
42:00 Completely agree with you Michael: You trespass in a federal building, Crime. You assault a police officer, Crime. You destroy property inside the house, Crime. One thing I found really fascinating about January 6th though was in the aftermath, there were several friends of mine who said things like, "You just watch, they won't be punished because they are white. If they would have been black, the police would have mowed them down like grass." I found that fascinating. I guessed and was consequently found correct that they would all face pretty harsh penalties. There is a group of people who genuinely believe that the hand of justice comes down on only one or two groups and exponentially more than others and it doesn't really play out in the data. As if the world really operated like Eddie Murphy's fucking incredible "White like me":
There is certainly evidence that Black people are mistreated at the hands of cops more than their non-black equivalents and police reform is something we should all care about but that aspect of the response to January 6th was very bizarre to me.
8:50 "The once booming Podcast Industry currently on the back foot"
Joe Rogan Podcast Views (Last 3 episodes) Per Clips on Youtube: 1.8 million, 2.1 million, 628 thousand (Probably much more on Spotify)
Vs from Forbes Article last month:
"February marked CNN’s lowest-rated month in a decade, with the network’s prime time lineup dropping 42% among viewers 25-54—the key demographic group valued by advertisers—compared to the same month one year ago. CNN drew an average prime time audience of 122,000 viewers in the key demo, compared to Fox News Channel’s 299,000 viewers (down 33%). MSNBC was third overall with 119,000 viewers (down 15%).
So what is the Mainstream Media Industry currently "on"?.... Their ass?....in the bottom of a well or something?
Mansplaining was first... um, explained to me by a woman as being when a man explains something to a woman in simplistic terms because he believes she's intellectually incapable of grasping complex ideas. In practice, I've mostly seen the term used to stifle debate, by calling out supposed "mansplaining", ie: toxic masculinity, as a way to avoid responding to a points raised during debate.

Every time I hear people talking about this Fox News lawsuit, I start thinking of the Sisters of Mercy song and begin singing "DO-MINI-ON!" loudly to myself in my head.
As far as I know, 'manspreading' is when someone with testicles sits down.
It’s shirt-cock O’clock!
Had to Google "Dick Gregory Manganese." Glad I did, because now I know what manganese will make me do to my momma.
