About this Episode

Business Insider elections reporter Grace Panetta joins the show to break down President Trump's argument that widespread voter fraud means the 2020 election results were 'rigged' against him. We honestly engage with Republican and conservative concerns one-by-one, explaining why they simply are not true, or, in any case, would not change the outcome of the presidential election.

We wrap up the conversation with the eternal debate among Massachusetts natives: Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks? And Grace's hot take on pasta sauce will cause some controversy for sure.
