On today’s episode of Hear Me Out… thanks, but no thanks.
Americans are anxiously awaiting their Thanksgiving celebrations this week – for many, with some trepidation. Polls suggest we all know we don’t want to talk about politics around the table… but that most of us will anyway.
With keeping the peace at the front of many minds — and civility always at the front of ours — our guest this week proposes an alternative: be a little bit of a jerk, if you need to. And, if you can… it’s okay to avoid the festivities altogether.
Our returning guest is H. Alan Scott – comedian, podcaster, and self-described a--hole.
