Today we discuss Kim Jong-un and Trump's nuclear buttons, Senator Orrin Hatch's retirement, and the winter "bomb cyclone" on the East Coast. Then we talk about a major factual error that fans noticed in the Jodie Foster–directed episode of Black Mirror. The show bungled the concept of emergency contraception, a form of birth control more commonly known as the morning after pill or Plan B. In this episode, we get the facts straight.
