This week, Lukas and Sam finally do the bit and talk about Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale and it's television adaptation. In particular, looking at why it hasn't caught on quite as much as liberals might have hoped, some of its cringier moments, and what it says about the nature of power, authoritarianism and regime change. Also featuring discussion on the German media's kink for Syrian migrants dating underage German girls, Donald Trump's hysteria-sparking 'shithole' comment, why basing immigration policy on ethnicity is legitimate and how the chips might fall on the so-called DACA deal.
