Gus talks about how he meets up with a particular friend of his every Wednesday for lunch. They always go to one of those fast-casual places, where you're not waited on, for a burger. He says that, if you pay by card, there's now a tipping option. Gus asks listeners if they tip at those types of places. The conversation then escalates to a full-blown discussion on the restaurant industry, what wait staff are paid, how it's difficult to find employees because government unemployment pays better and paying waiters and waitresses a living wage.

Later, Gus talks about a few news items that he believes his audience might be interested in. First, he talks about the lawsuit Diocese of Albany v. Lacewell, which involves the NY State Abortion Coverage Mandate, which requires that employers' healthcare insurance cover abortions. Although there is a religious exemption, there still are businesses linked to religious organizations that are being affected. The plaintiffs are appealing to the Supreme Court. Second, Gus talks about the U.S. Supreme Court overturning the 9th circuit court's ruling that upheld California Gov. Gavin Newsom's strict gathering rules on religious gatherings. The last story Gus shares is about President Joe Biden's support of using aborted fetal tissue for medical research and was overturning the Trump administration's policy that forbade that and it will be taxpayer funded. Gus has a conversation with listeners about the last topic.
