    Mike, Amanda, and Pasquale sit down to discuss celebrities having opinions, Congress starting to look a little bit like America, how one very specific military family is coping with Trump's government shutdown, basic middle school civics, the Delco Republican Party's new chairman failing upward, whether Speaker Pelosi has us in her AirPods, jokes specifically directed at single individuals, and Mike's hair. Then, Brian tags in to tell a few military stories, talk about using "West West Philly" as a dog whistle, discuss What Did Millennials Kill This Week, learn things about Pasquale that we can't unlearn, refine the difference between Delco and Delaware County, gain a healthy fear and respect for the sea, discover the subplot of the entire podcast, and just generally go completely off the rails for like 40 minutes.
