The Chicks vs. The Iraq War
Mike tells Sarah about an impending conflict, a dissident singer and America's first internet-enabled cancellation. Digressions include "Freedom Fries" and 1990s record company shenanigans. The co-hosts harmonize for the first time; Mike struggles not to call the Chicks by their former name.
Content note: This episode includes misogynistic, racist and fatphobic language.
