AVSEPod Episode 114: The West Wing - "Isaac & Ishmael"


We are back with a timely new episode, in which we discuss The West Wing's "Isaac & Ishamel", a Very Special episode released twenty years ago this week in the wake of the September 11th attacks. Join internet dumbasses Carolyn Main, David Bitzenhofer, and Austin as they tackle topics like religious fundamentalism, racism, and terrorism while doing their best not to get cancelled. Also, they talk about Aaron Sorkin's casual misogyny, Doctor Doom crying, and despite the episode being very clear about not doing this, how this episode fits into the larger West Wing continuity.
