Hello there Cool Kid! We have a jam packed ep for you this week! In Beyond The Headlines: America Chavez, Bill O'Reilly in trouble, Romo Retires, Manilow comes out, and giant pink diamond! This week, Pepsi both released their new ad and canceled that ad after MUCH backlash! A leading Russian opposition paper broke a story this week that gay men in Chechnya are being detained and, in some cases, murdered by local authorities. In Politics Round Up: Trump U Settlement, North Korea missiles (again), Flynn Seeks Immunity, Bannon Ousted From NSC and more. All this plus the Wi-Five of the Week! Enjoy!
Wrestlemania is the longest, most exciting and most exhausting WWE event every single year. The 33rd edition of the show was no different.
In fact, between Mania, the Hall of Fame, RAW, Smackdown, TakeOver: Orlando and the pre and post-shows for those events, there were over 24 hours (!!!!!) of WWE content on TV in the past seven days.
New champions were crowned, new stars debuted, old stars retired, and a lot more.
It’s can all be overwhelming, but luckily the Nation of Conversation is here to break down all of the things that happened… or at least the stuff that we cared about.
If you liked the show, please share it with your friends and be sure to leave us a quick review on iTunes or wherever you get podcasts.

When an overdramatic tour guide reveals a Data head at the end of some San Francisco sightseeing, the Entrepreneur crew is thrust into a tense temporal thriller. But before long, the tone shifts, and the show returns to its roots of daring viewers to come back after their summer break. Are we going to get the rest of our socks in the next episode? Why is Data a liar in this episode? It’s an episode that starts off in an Undiscovered Country, but gets lost in Back to the Future Part III.
