310 - "Two Live Shows and a Key West Hangover"
Florida is open for business, so The Fifth Column flung its masks into the garbage and headed to the Sunshine State for back-to-back live shows in Miami (coming soon to Patreon!) and a poolside recording in Key West (hence that hollow sound). Nursing hangovers and gasping in the heat, the lads stumble through the following pressing (and pointless) topics:- Those Miami shows were pretty fun, eh? - Wait, why exactly are we in Florida?- Kmele thinks Creepy Joe wasn't being creepy- The global minimum tax is dumb- Ransomware everywhere - This not wearing masks things is pretty great, innit?- COVID addicts, COVID miscellany- Kmele on the Fauci emails: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯- The end of Tiananmen- State violence works- And so very much more...
