We have two great co-hosts. Patrick Reilly is a sociologist at the Paul Merage School of Business University of California, Irvine. He is a media sociologist, author of “No Laughter Among Thieves” in the American Sociological Review, and a part-time independent wrestling announcer in California.

Timothy Gill is a sociologist at the University of North Carolina, Wilmington. Tim is an expert on Venezuelan politics, recently published The Future of U.S. Empire in the Americas: The Trump Administration and Beyond with Routledge, and is a former wrestler.
