Josh Zepps, host of the (Reason-friendly) podcast WTP_Live, and former (Reason-friendly) host over at HuffPost Live, joins The Fifth Column this week to chew over the smorgasbord of available news, including:

* Tulsa cops shooting and killing the unarmed Terence Crutcher.

* Authorities shooting and not killing Ahmad Rahami, the suspected pressure-cooker bomber of Jersey/Chelsea.

* The media hyperventilating over both of the above.

* Skittles.

* Gary Johnson.

* Hitler.

* Carl Bernstein's fantasy life.

* An unsuspecting Kmele Foster being bum-rushed in a red-carpet situation by Denzel Washington. Wait, what?
