From the show:

Comedian and storyteller Desiree Burch (Netflix's "Flinch," Comedy Central's "Roast Battle," "Live from the BBC," New York Neo-Futurists) was born late, bloomed late, and generally has difficulty with the present moment. At a moment in history where societal progress has swung back around to authoritarianism and regression, Desiree embarks on a journey of mythically ridiculous proportions into the Black Rock Desert of Nevada, to figure out how she, and all of us, have gotten here, and how we might turn the dial and alter the course for those of us still to come.

Have you ever been caught in a loop?

Ugh. Seriously, y’all…

Have you ever been caught in a loop?
