When you elect a clown, expect a circus. Since we live in ridiculous times, one of the biggest challenges for journalists is to not make their work seem like an article from The Onion.

Today we’re joined by writer Katie Rife, who works for various online magazines and is currently news editor for the Onion’s non-satirical section The AV Club.

Listen as we chat with Katie about the the controversy of the White House Correspondents dinner, Kathy Griffin and the wonders of an untainted salad bar.


The creepy implications of how they caught the Golden State Killer.

The viral video phenomenon- Everything is Terrible.

  1. Cool show! I really enjoyed listening to Katie Rife on the podcast. I did not know that Univision had bought The Onion!
