This week we talk the latest messy bitch media gabfest about the Trump Administration contrasted against the opening of much of the US coastline to offshore drilling. Then we have a laugh about the new Philly DA Krasner firing a whole bunch of prosectors. Matt gives us the rundown in the big Intercept interview with James Risen, and takes a trip down memory lane to the Plamegate fiasco. We close with Felix's fever dream nightmare of Elon Musk's Rockabilly Martian colony and the "Raw Water" craze sweeping Silicon Valley.
