There's a lot of stuff going on in the primaries that mostly reminds us of stuff that's happened before, and also Trump's probably done more crimes, but it's important to stay focused on what matters. And what matters is that Rod Dreher has finally updated us on his friend's wife's very serious, very real exorcism. Catch up on Rod Dreher's the Exorcist Pt. 1 here: https://soundcloud.com/chapo-trap-house/episode-252-rod-drehers-the-exorcist-feat-brett-payne-and-bryan-quinby-10918

We talk to journalist Tom O'Neill about his book uncovering new theories on Charles Manson, MKUltra, the CIA, and the war against counter-culture & the left in the 1960's. Featuring special guest host Noah Kulwin, an editor at The Outline.

We examine Joe Biden's "Corn Pop" saga through the lens of a few classic Chapo characters, then lament how Biden's long history of seemingly genuine nice guy-ness is undercut by his equally long history of shit politics. Also, the President just fully admits that Saudi Arabia directs our foreign policy by fiat, so that's cool and good.

We hear from our UK correspondent Marcus Barnett, and attempt to make any sense of anything going on with Brexit.

Attention, skippers. There is an Admiral on deck. Former U.S. Congressman, retired three-star vice admiral, and current candidate for Democratic presidential nomination Joe Sestak sat down with us in Iowa. In this special bonus episode, we discuss China, the world bank, Iran, medicare and the VA, and which boats are the best boats.

The torture never stops. We cover Trump's plan to nuke the weather, Joe Walsh's presidential bid, a new poll that places Bernie at the top position in the democratic primaries, the unfulfilling death of David Koch, and finally, conservative faces.

We talk about a lot of shit in here, from Biden and Harris' flailing campaigns to Les Wexner's trust issues, and we even read some poetry. But mostly they requested I cut some potentially embarrassing moments and cursed ideas that I just didn't cut. Enjoy.

Thanks to a positive mental attitude and the power of good vibes, Chapo has landed its first ever interview with a Presidential candidate. Virgil and Matt have a spirited dialogue with fellow bestselling author Marianne Williamson about Marxist materialism versus the idealism in her campaign book A Politics of Love: A Handbook for a New American Revolution.

Virgil and Matt take a look under the candidates' hoods, check their polling oil, and preview the first of the democratic primary debates, while examining the whole fleet for lemons. Which make and model democrat will run like a champ and will perform like there's sugar in their gas tanks? Find out in todays wonkomotive extravaganza.

We're joined by legendary author Alan Moore to discuss evil architecture, magic & political power, fate & free will, and the enduring appeal of Lovecraft.

Our June 1st live show from Berlin, the heart of Germany's wonderful PLUR culture. We talk funky beats, the antideutsche political tendency, Austria's far-right government self-owning itself out of existence (also involves funky beats), and the Jewishness of Joe Biden.

We talk to The Intercept's Ryan Grim about his new book "We've Got People," discussing the Democrats' reliance on big money and how it might be broken by mass-movement based politics. Rahm Emanuel is a central figure in Ryan's book, so we read from Rahm's new column in The Atlantic, ironically called "It's Time To Hold American Elites Accountable for Their Abuses." Finally, we introduce a new character into Chapo canon, NJ representative Josh Gottheimer. Few tickets left for our UK shows in Glasgow (6/3), London Early (6/5) and Manchester (6/7).
