Andrew Freeman is a California native with a degree in history from UCLA. He is particularly interested in politics and policy.

"Look at the Crazy Things Your Government Did This Week" might be an appropriate title for tonight's TPL, a roundup of the best moments from the show.

Jacob and Cara check out HBO's new documentary Americans in Bed and have a chat with Meghan McCain, the host of Pivot's new show Raising McCain.
