Top 7 #ResistanceReads with Kit

Teddy is joined by his sister Kit to rank their top seven #ResistanceReads -- the non-fiction books and novels that have become particularly resonant in this weird, wild age of Trump. Topics discussed include the scary hilarity of Russian reality TV, why Glenn Greenwald is surprisingly just like a middle school girl, and how Monica Lewinsky saved social security.
