Rising Democratic Senators Elizabeth "Poseidon" Warren (Rachel Bloom) and Chuck "Lil Squish" Schumer (Dan Gregor) waltz into Hard Nation like a couple of Admiral Holdos. Warren thinks all Americans deserve a "double drop" like Splash Mountain, Schumer's famous cousin has been sending him dog crap for 1600 days, and both of them dish on their favorite taffy flavors. Plus: it's Hard Nation's 100th episode!

Rachel Bloom must listen to the show based on how she came straight out of the gate with a completely insane premise for her character.

I don't know if it was a sub-conscious reference or complete coincidence, but there really was an episode of Futurama called "Jurassic Bark" where Fry gets his dog cloned.

Another great episode, loved Mark doing an awful impression of an impression and the whole vibrating micropenis and Hades subplots.

No surprise there, she's done plenty of Earwolf & UCB improv, has lots of friends there, Paul Welsh is in her show, etc.
And the dog thing's probably inspired by the recent news of Barbara Streisand legitimately having her departed dog cloned twice.

I didn't even think about that, but yes, that makes perfect sense (assuming it was recorded very recently). Either way, it was funny that Mark specifically said "Jurassic Bark".
