First thing's first, we're talking to recent Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and bassist/writer Kathy Valentine of the Go-Go's! You might not know that The Go-Go's were the first female band to play all their own instruments and write their own songs to have an album go to number 1 on the Billboard Charts! Well, now you know! Their recent Rock and Roll Hall of Fame win got us thinking about our own firsts, as cringe-worthy as many of them are. Discover our first pets (hint: very low on the food chain), first albums (our hearts will go on), first jobs (dear god) and first kisses (GROSS)! Seriously, why do dudes under 30 always smell like Funyuns? Plus, Danielle reveals her freaky pirate obsession, Hayley uncovers the nasty truth behind Burger King's so-called "flame broiled" lies, and we go deep into the zen of deer/squirrel spotting! PLUS, our dedicated mixologist Shane Bagnall mixes us not one but TWO drinks! (He had to do one with alcohol and one without, as today's guest is a sober rocker). Like we've said before, Shane is not a half asser. He is a WHOLE asser. And that's not all folks...there's way more weirdness to come! Now is the time for you to kick back, relax and allow us to be the FIRST podcast to introduce you to the concept of "soul cankles." Ugh...Sorry about that.

On today's show: NYC removes a 187 year-old Thomas Jefferson statue, JK Rowling is doxxed for acknowledging biological sex, and Whoopi Goldberg and Amber Ruffin become the latest pundits to attack Kyle Rittenhouse. Plus Nick Searcy joins to discuss his new documentary “Capitol Punishment” about January 6, TikTok Tuesday, and more!
Whitlock sets fire to the mainstream media in an intense solo show. Why is ESPN covering — and lamenting — the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict, a case that had nothing to do with sports? How do hosts like Malika Andrews, Kendrick Perkins, Richard Jefferson, and Amber Ruffin stumble as they try to connect race to a case that only involved white people? What profile does Jason use to show the racial narrative that white liberals have imposed upon black America? Plus, is there a connection between the Waukesha Christmas Parade tragedy and the Kenosha drama? What do we know about Darrell Brooks Jr. and his motives for mowing down dozens of innocent people?

Now is a particularly exciting time to talk to Amber Ruffin, an improvisation-trained comedy performer and writer whose talent, perseverance, and upbeat charm have led to her own late night variety series. Peacock’s “The Amber Ruffin Show” allows the multihyphenate host to both indulge in the silliest comedic premises and cover current events with a refreshing directness otherwise rare in late night television. Her advice to fellow creators and comedians is to take risks, have no shame, and be prolific. “You have to have a pile of work that you can point to and go, ‘I can do this and here’s the proof.’ ” Amber grew up a theater kid in Omaha, Nebraska, before training in improv and sketch comedy at Boom Chicago Amsterdam, the iO Theater, and the Second City. She’s appeared on Comedy Central’s “Drunk History,” written for awards show specials and series including “A Black Lady Sketch Show,” and in 2014 became the first Black woman to write for a network talk show on NBC’s “Late Night With Seth Meyers,” which has earned her four Primetime Emmy nominations.

“You’ll Never Believe What Happened to Lacey,” is the title of the very funny, if completely horrifying, new book by comedian and late-night host Amber Ruffin. The book, which Amber co-wrote with her sister Lacey Lamar, is a collection of essays about all the racist sh*t Lacey has to put up with as a Black woman living and working in Omaha, Nebraska. On this episode of Next Question with Katie Couric, Katie talks with the sisters about growing up in Omaha, their different trajectories and experiences with racism and how humor can be used to expose and talk about the hard stuff. Katie also explores Amber’s career, her new show (The Amber Ruffin Show, on Peacock) and her incredible ability to skewer the kind of everyday racism she and her siblings have always put up with. And if you haven’t seen it already, go watch Amber make the case for a White History Month.

Music producers Lance and April Ledbetter talk about curating their new anthology, which collects the flip sides of the 78s Harry Smith chose for his 1952 Anthology of American Folk Music. They spoke with producer Sam Briger. Also, we talk with 'Late Night with Seth Meyers' writer and performer Amber Ruffin. She's now got her own show on Peacock.

Plus, from Late Night with Seth Meyers, Jenny Hagel and Amber Ruffin try to decipher the sounds of sheep from the sounds of human babies, and country singer-songwriter Margo Price and her guitarist husband Jeremy Ivey swear they didn't start the fire in a game combining historical events and Billy Joel songs.

Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks about Sidney Powell leaving the Trump legal team, Buffalo New York business owners standing up to Andrew Cuomo’s lockdown orders, and Amber Ruffin’s message against family unity. Dave first discusses Sidney Powell’s claims of “biblical” evidence regarding her allegations of election fraud. The next day Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis confirmed that Sidney Powell was no longer on the Donald Trump legal team. Dave tries to make sense of all this and when this election will finally be over. Meanwhile in Buffalo, New York, business owners are taking lockdown protests to the next level and practicing civil disobedience. Business owners were caught on camera chasing out the sheriff and the health department who were trying to shut down their meeting on private property. Finally on the Amber Ruffin Show, Amber Ruffin spread a message encouraging political polarization and demonizing Trump supporters. This pro-divided states of America message is not quite the “time to heal” message that Joe Biden spoke of in his victory speech. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
