For our season two finale, Emily and Heather are joined by "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee" writer Mike Drucker to talk about all things comedy and journalism. How do the writing staffs at shows like Full Frontal collaborate with researchers to produce investigative segments? How has the rise of social media changed the comedy landscape? Have comedians done a better job of explaining Brexit to Americans than journalists? Plus, Tricky's in-house comedian George Civeris presents a list of innovative suggestions for solving journalism's thorniest problems.
