We also asked Austin American-Statesman City Hall reporter +Lilly Rockwell  to talk about the recent training controversy that spawned the hashtag #WhatWomenAsk and to break down a brief history of "Mansplaining."

Joe Gross talks about the Mad Men series finale and in "A Toast," we recommend a fantastic The Simpsons couch gag from the Rick and Morty team, The Boy Kings of Texas by Domingo Martinez and a recent episode of Fresh Air with Terry Gross about how the government created ghettos. Come check it out!
