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.

Some knuckleheads want to use the bible as defense for a rape and kidnapping trial. I'm sure that will go over well. That and cleaning up some other stories we have missed.
