Chad and Amanda speak with our friend, and previous guest, Brianna about a 20/20 special about gay conversion therapy camps. Also a little bit about a new Trans-Bathroom bill that is popping up in Texas and then just a little bit of everything at the end.

** During this recording you will hear a bit of yelling in the background. I apologize for my friends not being able to play a quiet card game and instead played the loudest game they could think of. People are not dying, they are just being competitive.
