ScathingAtheist 185: RFRA Madness Edition
In this week’s episode, France caves on the Burkini thing, just like they did with the Nazis, we learn that Donald Trump is the healthiest man in the world, but still gets to leave school after 3rd period, and Andrew Torrez from the Opening Arguments podcast joins us for the least expensive conversation with a lawyer I’ve ever had.
