Episode 203: Our Competitive Episode (feat. Becky Beaver) Is the new Space Jam a look another allegory for labor organizing or just a way for Warner Brothers to tell off Disney? Are the College Republicans about to completely implode due to corruption or did a bunch of state federations just fail Politics 101? And how did Seamus&apos; grandfather help Jesse Owens win 4 gold medals at the 1936 Berlin Olympics? Will Seamus ever eat Pineapple Pizza? (Spoiler to that last one: yes, if you donate at https://secure.actblue.com/donate/nysydpiethepresident?refcode=revengeonseamus .) All of that and more are answered with special guest (and Friend of the Pod), YDA Womens Caucus Chair Becky Beaver.
