On today's show, author Malcolm Harris (@BigMeanInternet) joins us to discuss his new book, Kids These Days: Human Capital and the Making of Millennials. While their elders often blame the problems of the millennial generation on millennials themselves, Harris debunks that idea with a structural analysis of the political and economic factors driving their behavior and development.

On the fun half: More people call in to discuss Al Franken, Roy Moore's war buddy makes an excellent case for him, a father and son explain their different reasons for voting for Doug Jones, a grieving father calls out Moore's homophobia, Nikki Haley thinks Trump's accusers deserve to be heard, Nomiki Konst calls out DNC waste and incompetence, and Sam schools a ring-winger on rape apologia (and plays a clip of Trump accuser Jessica Leeds).

Cast: Sam Seder (@samseder), Michael Brooks (@_michaelbrooks) Matt Lech (@mattlech), Jamie Peck (@jamie_elizabeth), Brendan Finn (@BF1nn)
