This jam-packed episode features a first-person dispatch from Standing Rock, a look at problematic dating manuals from the '90s, an exploration of the time Amber Tamblyn catfished Tyrese, a quiz on bizarre celebrity baby names, and a list of reasons why Bill Maher is terrible.

 

We start things off by welcoming guest host Luna Malbroux, a local comedian and one of KQED's Women to Watch.

We talk about Mapping Privilege, her new project in collaboration with KQED Pop, which involves traveling everywhere from Standing Rock and Wichita to Detroit and Houston to talk to strangers about identity:
