We also meet a breast cancer survivor who is not a supporter of those ubiquitous Pink Ribbons.

One of the best shows out there...
You may not believe everything they say - but they approach their arguments rationally and they're pasionate about what they believe. A rare commodity in the world today.
Very Funny and joyfully unethical
It's an opiniated show that is very funny, sarcastic and politically incorect. A show that will make you think about all the B.S. around us.
While I don't agree with everything P&T have to say, there is a lot of good de-bunking in this show.
