Why is this night unlike any other nights? Why, it’s a Lovett Or Leave It Passover, Charlie Brown! Lesley Stahl (Paula Poundstone) stops by to interview the Pharaoh from Exodus and probably could have followed up a bit? Zach Zimmerman rates each of the Biblical plagues on the Kinsey Scale, and his answers… might surprise you. The world’s deepest fish (Andrea Jin) ponders our complicated lives on land. Adam Conover weighs in on a potential writers' strike, and we tuck into some Cadbury eggs and chocolate covered matzah for a festive round of Hot Takes.
