After an onslaught of traumatic national stories, Anthony and his riders discuss their impact on daily life. In this episode, you'll hear why a quarrel is brewing between one man and his next door neighbor, why some topics are off-limits in one Chicago household, and why one man refused to enter an iconic Chicago building.

Past Episodes

On January 13th, an emergency alert reporting an inbound ballistic missile sent Hawaii into a state of panic. It turned out to be a false alarm, but for a period of up to 38 minutes, thousands of residents and tourists thought they might die. In this episode, a couple there on their honeymoon tell the story of what those 38 minutes were like...from their initial nonchalance to eventually placing "goodbye" phone calls to their loved ones. Anthony's other passengers share the stories of their own life-or-death moments, which range from home invasions and armed robberies, to car accidents, muggings, and a near-miss at an amusement park.

You've heard of a sugar daddy. A "sugar baby" is the other half of this type of relationship. Did you know that millions of American women are "sugar dating" to graduate from college debt-free, and that the Internet is making it easier than ever? In this episode, Anthony picks up a 27-year old woman en route to dinner with her sugar daddy, where she will earn $1000 for her time ("nothing sexual at all.") Listen as she opens up to Anthony about: how the transactions happen, how much she can earn, and why she believes for her, sugar dating = female empowerment. EXPLICIT/NSFW.
