For this episode: while politics in 2020 are mired in scandals that go nowhere, the saga of Budd Dwyer culminated in one of the most horrifyingly public ways possible, and has become immortalized on the internet. Drew and Jim discuss the crimes that led to Dwyer's notoriety and conviction, the choices made by local news organizations as it became public, and the legacy of dirty politics and public displays in the wake of the incident.
