Good morning, we had a sick intern this morning, and we found your next excuse to call in to work. Intern Anna is still here, because just a minor sore throat and congestion really isn't a reason to use a sick day. What are your reasons to call in to work, though? Just because it's Friday, because you're actually extremely hungover, or maybe even that you went to the hospital? Trust us people, a hangover is worth the sick day.
Politics
Facebook says that this election is the most talked and posted about event in history. Well, thank goodness that we are almost done with this mess of an election, and the last debate is coming up tonight. No one can agree with the extreme sides Clinton and Trump are taking, making this into some sort of flaming disaster that no one can stop watching.

Leah Problem's
We heard from Leah this morning, who needed some help with her most recent relationship problem. She opened up to us about how religion may be coming between her online date that happens to be going really well. We heard from some of you about what she should do, and what it might mean for her relationship. Is it a deal breaker or just a cautionary step forward? What ever it is, we all concluded it may come down how you want to raise your children.

The Trend

There is a pair of nearly priceless futuristic shoes in the hands of a St. Paul man. The last (thank god) presidential debate is tonight in Las Vegas, and Minneapolis may finally be opening an outdoor amphitheater in collaboration with First Avenue.

Get Away from the Debate Chaos

The last presidential debate is tonight, and we could not be more excited to have these interruptive and explosive debates over with. In case you don't want to watch the spiraling downfall of Trump versus Clinton, there is always Netflix, because 30 channels of the debate can't stop you from watching Chopped on Food Network.

$1000 Minute
Kate played this morning and pulled through, almost snatching $1000 with time to spare. She also took home $50.00 in all-day breakfast gift cards from our favorite, McDonald's, because who isn't lovin' that?

Get to Know

Today's question on Get To Know was, "If you were moderating the debate tonight, what would be the first question you would ask?" Dana would ask "How dare you?" Followed up with, "Who do you think you are?" Do we really need to ask anything else?

Where's Intern Anna?
We sent Intern Anna out into the world again for your chance to win Green Day tickets. Her first clue was that she was down by the river again, but not in a van. Her second hint was that she can't drink the beer, although she can see it. Find out where Intern Anna was! Michelle guessed right, and she's headed to see Green Day in April. There will be more chances all week long with Ben, Dana and Giselle in the morning, Miles the DJ at 4pm, and 8pm with Jordan. Don't miss your chance, you American Idiot!

Rap Up
Don't forget the Daily Rap Up with Chaz Kangas (@chazraps) who freestyles a secret word and recaps everything we talked about previously in the show.
