S02.E03: The Rent Is Too Damn High

Dan Kois, June Thomas and Sam Adams duke it out to see who will move on and represent Slate in the Hired Goons divisional finals. Extra! Extra! We start things off in news publication-style by having our contestants identify movies and TV shows from those in-universe newspaper headlines that spin at you (and why do they do that, BTW?). Then we relax with fifteen consecutive rounds of special edition Monopoly where tokens, properties and rules give hints to which pop culture edition of Monopoly we're playing. Tears are shed! Records are broken! Riddles are given! It's all happening right now.
