The Fed and U.S. Treasury come up with a plan to save Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank over the weekend, but it's definitely not a taxpayer bailout...or is it? We discuss the failing of two large regional banks and the response to it. Also, it's NCAA tourney time, we make our picks and the Critical Thinking book club is back as we talk about "Rise of the Fourth Reich" chapters 3 & 4.
Donald Trump decided to blame the GOP's failure to reach its goals in the 2022 election on "abortion extremists." Was he right or could it have been that all the losers that cost Team GOP in the election were highly Trump-backed candidates and he's just CYA?
ESPN decided it finally would give in to God, calling on everyone to pray as Buffalo Bills player, Damar Hamlin collapsed on the field and was in critical condition after a seemingly routine play in the game.

Also, is Pat about to become a father? What about Twitter becoming the final bastion of freedom?
It's a #WTFWednesday on Critical Thinking as we discover that Major League Baseball is even more woke than we ever thought. Also, Dylan Mulvaney decides he wants a baby inside him and we discuss just how bad the deal that was struck to raise the debt ceiling limit really was.
Some in the MAGA forever camp took the past week to unleash some of the most disgraceful and disgusting lines of personal attack I've ever seen in politics. Is that all the Trump camp really has? I'm flying solo and discussing the aftermath of Ron DeSantis announcing his run for president, plus I discuss what polls are and aren't saying about the two-headed GOP race.
