This week on the show we do our best to have the conversation nobody wants to have - the crisis in the middle east. Join us as we attempt to cover as many sides to the conflict as we can from a North American perspective. From politics to religion, we discuss the various opinions on the crisis and offer some of our own. Though we only scratch the surface, we hope you'll give us your own thoughts on the matter and why you feel that way. Please feel free to send us your thoughts on social media or by visiting TruthMashup.com. This issue is never easy to talk about, but our show has always been about taking on all issues, no matter how complex. So, we hope you'll take a listen and join the conversation.

Time for Truth Mashup America. Dan Speerin rounds up the most ridiculous and important American news. This week we take a look at the quagmire that is the death penalty. America, you're in a group of select countries that you would otherwise not want to be a part of. Also what ethnicity still believes in the death penalty? The answer will shock you. Well, not really. We also explore the link between for-profit colleges and wall street. On the lighter side, Wal-mart ice cream sandwiches are not melting after 3 days out in the sun, but the FDA sees no problem with that. And much much more.
