Episode 57 of the NonProphets podcast, in which Atief, Robert, and Scott probe the limits of their new political reality with a thought experiment that they called "Everything's on the Table" (aka "Plausible/Implausible"). After discussing the rules of the game (01:01), they discussed the possibility of an announcement about Korean reunification (4:07), Hungary (Hungaria?) making arrests in a George Soros conspiracy (7:53), Macron discussing Trump's soft hands (13:33), with a diversion into Comey's book (14:26) and the attractiveness of Helen of Troy (16:56), the special counsel indicting Trump (18:23), Trump deciding to just come clean (23:58), and whether Jeff Sessions might destroy the only copy of the Wu-Tang Clan's "Once Upon A Time in Shaolin" (27:08). Things then get full-on Trump-oriented, with a discussion of the plausibility of us learning more about Trump's penis's appearance (31:47) or nickname (33:04), whether he has an illegitimate child (34:59), Giuliani being appointed to investigate Hillary Clinton (38:24), April unemployment numbers and the overall health of the economy (OBE-ish!) (39:15), and leaked tax returns and Trump's personal wealth (40:37). We closed with a discussion of scenarios involving an FBI raid to seize thousands of penises (42:14), and a Boehner/Snoop team-up on SNL (43:32): As always, you can reach us at nonprophetspod.wordpress.com or at nonprophetspod@gmail.com.
