It's Casual Friday! Sam and Emma host Heather Digby Parton, contributing writer at Salon and proprietor of the Hullaballoo blog. Digby, Sam, and Emma jump right into recent news surrounding the January 6th committee, as the infrastructure and reconciliation fights fade into the background. They begin with former Chief of Staff Mark Meadows ignoring his subpoena for criminal contempt of congress, before getting into the recent Trump audio leak regarding “common sense” regard for Pence by the insurrectionists, and the hope that Democrats will finally capitalize on something in the public eye with these hearings, as well as the likelihood that they won't, especially with Pelosi's desire to maintain a “strong” Republican party. Next, they jump to the corporatist Dems pushing the “inflation is the new deficit” idea, all while they continue to reject any helpful provisions in reconciliation, and cover whether Biden and Co. will actually put any leverage on Manchin or if they're still shilling for a right-wing that will never respect them. Lastly, they touch on the continued supply line issues, and get into the Rittenhouse judge's absurdly explicit political performance.   In the second half: Sam and Emma are joined by David Roth, co-owner of Defector and host of The Distraction podcast, to discuss his recent piece "I Will Create A Winning Basketball Program At The University Of Austin", and cover the education institution for a new age, sponsored by every libertarian contrarian that spends too much time on the internet, and how and why Bari Weiss has decided on creating a “university” as her next money-making initiative in her fight against the woke trinity of trans people, Black people, and Palestinians. And in the Fun Half: Emma and Sam dive into Kyle Rittenhouse's judge taking time in the trial to test out his right-wing tight five with some supply line jokes, before looking deep into Jimmy Dore's mystery producer who either: A). Jimmy lets run wild in editing, or B). Jimmy encourages to manipulate information. Matt Lech has Stephen Jay Gould walk us through the history of Ben Shapiro's bell curve nonsense, and the weird fact that IQ is somehow never important in homogenous societies. They also cover Youngkin's 17-year old son trying to vote… twice, plus, your IMs!   Purchase tickets for the live show in Boston on January 16th HERE!

In Episode 299 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey and Jarrett are joined by David Roth of Defector Media to cover everything that happened since we recorded last week. The Mets haven't lost on the field since, but continue to be a disaster off the field. We also chat about who edits David and try to figure out who the most 2021 Met is. In the third half of the show we take a few questions, but don't really have any pro wrestling to talk about.

Why does iWork4Him Exist, because Work Matters. Why did God give Adam and Eve work in the Garden, because Work Matters. Why are you listening to this show today, because Work Matters. Work Matters to God and your work is your ministry and the place you get to display God's handiwork in your life. David Roth Joins us today from www.WorkMatters.org to give us an update on what they are doing to help Christ Followers like you to live out their faith in their work and to tell you about their online learning program.David Roth had his “Sunday Christian” years for the first 20 years of his career.  He felt like he was doing the right things, but had no clue about integrating his faith and his work.  As new parents they decided to move near family.  In their new city they were growing in their faith on Sunday and started to think about how that applied at work.  Through the lives of some key influences David started seeing examples of Christians living out their faith consistently between home and work.  He feels he got an MBA in faith and work through observing others. David attended a leadership simulcast at his church where they launched Workmatters.  He immediately became a volunteer and on the board.  Through wise counsel they spun this ministry out of the church and God has used this stand alone ministry to reach thousands. Fast forward to now, Workmatters is working to scale the Workmatters Institute for Young Professionals this Fall in several cities.  This 12 week commitment allows attendees, physical or digital, to dig deep into their faith and develop actionable items to implement in their work.  www.workmatters.org/instituteDavid Roth's words to his younger self:  “Don't wait to crash and burn before you understand the beauty of work/faith integration.”Sponsored by Belay  https://belaysolutions.com/iwork4him/Text:  4HIM to 55123 for your free monthly workflow download

A cast of pod which the world, every morning, strains and pushes out of its butt.    On the newest edition of Pod Yourself A Gun, David Roth from Defector Media and The Distraction podcast joins Matt and Vince to talk about The Sopranos season four episode thirteen, “Whitecaps.”   The season four finale is widely regarded as one of the series’ best, and will ask you, if you can, to imagine where you are on the pecking order. A call from Irina leaves Carmela feeling low, and tears the Sopranos family away from each other and from the beach house from which the episode gets its title.   Even with Tony’s breathing sounding, as David points out, like a pug on a hot day, the episode has Edie Falco and James Gandolfini turning in two of the finest performances ever seen on television. They both won Emmy’s for this.   If there were awards for great single-serving Sopranos jerkass characters, I would definitely give one to the episode's other star, Alan Sapinsly, or as he calls himself, “A.S.” He owns the house Tony wants to buy and boy does he want you to know he’s a lawyer and he knows what “tort” means. What a perfect Sundance swag hat-wearing a*hole. We're taking a short break in between seasons, so tell us how much you miss us in a five star review on Apple Podcasts.
