"I want to be defined by what I'm for and not by what I'm against."

This week, we introduce a new segment at the top of the hour: "Three Minutes of Twitter." Since Nish deactivated her Twitter account and now has one less place to put her rage, Amy decided it would be fun to give her three full minutes to rant, uninterrupted, about anything she wants. This week, she rants about the allegation that someone in the Trump campaign paid an adult film star hush money a month before the election. We're sorry and you're welcome.

We also tackle John Piper's suggestion that women shouldn't teach at Christian seminaries, as well as a piece written by Rod Dreher in which he blatantly dehumanizes the poor.

We recorded this episode on the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision. So, for our deep dive, we take a look at the state of American abortion politics--the labels that define each side, statistics that suggest punitive abortion restrictions don't work, and how each side is becoming more entrenched in ideological purity.
