Producer Bobby and Mark Bland fly solo on this show.  Mark is having a week and it shows in the conversation with the on again/off again Producer Bobby.  First up Mark and Bobby discuss the biggest story in the USA currently which is Donald Trump explaining that it is alright for women to be punished for having an abortion.  Of course, this set off the entire country pitting liberals and conservatives that defend Trump at each others throats.  And it wasn't pretty at all.  Producer Bobby explains how he feels that Trump is technically right and Mark tries to hone in on what Bobby wants done to fix the issue.

Mark then decides to explain how ABC and other major networks could capitolize heavily on the crop of well known internet based/youtube based talents and their fanbases.  Mark was watching his daughter watch this guy that plays Minecraft to the tune of millions of fans and it got him thinking about all the other people on online that have huge fanbases and could benefit from and to major media conglomerates and their current power fanbases that exist.  

Finally, Mark and Bobby come across a new social media app called PEEPLE which touts itself as the "YELP for everyday people" . People would join the network and be able to rate people on their personal opinion of the people, just like you do on yelp for a restaurant.  Mark and Bobby delve into the dark underbelly of what this could mean and how it could go horribly wrong.  Plus they discuss what things the company who created is already doing to combat some of those consequesnces.
