Jess and Josh recap Agent Carter’s adventures walking in LA and POTUS having a chat with Director Coulson. Did Peggy Carter use excessive force on Dottie? Was it legal for Howard Stark to employ all those women as production assistants? Could President Elis have Director Coulson’s very illegal SHIELD conducting black ops under the Constitution? Tune in for a discussion on Peggy dreaming in show tunes and Presidential powers to conduct foreign affairs. References: People v.
