Episode 6: Kazakhstan and the Anniversary of January 6

Sean and Jules talk about Daniel McCarthy’s debate challenge to Trump. We remember one of January 6’s fallen heroes, Kevin Greeson, who was thought by some to have died by tasing himself in the testicles.

In our main segment, we talk about the recent riots in Kazakhstan and the following crackdown by a Russian-led military coalition.
