Max and Ginger start their Sunday by wondering what all the fuss is around Shepard Smith quitting Fox News, before getting into the serious topic of how much money there is in politics, and how the amount of money seems to be getting greater each election cycle.
Max and Ginger get into a discussion they have tried to avoid for weeks, talking about Trumps behavior. Ginger really gets going before Max jumps in to raise the level of discourse, by comparing the Max Miller Dog to members of the GOP.
Ginger and Max spend the entire show talking about their visit to the Texas Tribune Festival, and their interviews with politicians, reporters and pundits.
But not before of course, Max throws the show entirely off track by bringing up an inadvertently rude email he received.
Max and Ginger tackle yet another difficult topic this week, with a discussion about the opioid crisis, and the companies responsible for the distribution of a large amount of the pills.
Their guest is Dr. Clarissa Johnston from the Dell Teaching Hospital in Austin. Of course, this doesn’t prevent Max having a dig at amongst other things, a LinkedIn job posting from Cardinal Health, an oped on drug price controls from an industry group, and a few other snippets around YouTube, before they finally get to the opioid crisis in the US.
Ginger allows Max to get on his usual rant regarding is anyone in DC, Republican or Democrat doing anything remotely useful for the average American (umm….nope), before getting into the meat of the show.
The guests this week are from the University of Texas team that is building something called Guadaloop, a project to work with the Elon Musk concept Hyperloop, whereby pods, (a train) would run at high velocity in a vacuum tunnel. The team explains how their project works, and why this type of technology could represent the future of travel.
Ginger and Max get right into their first show ever on the heavy topic of guns.
Why is it that so many mass shootings take place in the United States, verses other western countries? Is it really to do with mental health, or violent video games? Max and Ginger find the underlying cause of the issue, and stick as usual to the facts.
