THE POPE'S VISIT AND POLITICS
He might have once been a devoted Catholic altar boy in Chicago but Jimmy Dore seems more about rebellion now.
He’s a comedian and author who is a regular and welcome guest.
Rebelling against religion and mainstream party politics, Jimmy always shakes up the conversation.
He tells the story of being chased by a molesting priest and how that priest was ultimately handled by the community and the church.
It’s religion and politics for sure but the crew gets to a lot of other things as well…Like the psychology of success and jockeying for position in life.
Plus, now that Heather’s inmate lover is out (he was serving 5+ years in a federal penitentiary for a white collar crime), Jimmy is updated on her situation and shares some tough love with Heather.
Josh gives Mark and Jimmy a hard time over their affections for the app PERISCOPE.
You can find more Jimmy at jimmydorecomedy.com
Heather Ankeny and J.Elvis Weinstein (Josh) join Mark Thompson
