    Fox News is now a threat to national security, with guest Garrett Graff

    In today's episode, journalist Garrett Graff is back to talk about his recent article, "Fox News Is Now a Threat to National Security." We also spend some time at the end of the podcast discussing Garrett's newest book, "The only plane in the sky, an oral history of 9/11," that's based on a fascinating article that Garrett wrote for Politico a while back.

    Impeached. And the ACA repeal effort gains steam.

    In today's show, Cliff and I talk about Trump's impeachment and what we think is motivating Nancy Pelosi's brinksmanship with Mitch McConnell. Then we talk about the late-breaking Republican court victory that threatens to repeal Obamacare, and how this should play into Democratic messaging in 2020.

    UK election, impeachment, Bernie & Melania

    UK election, impeachment, Bernie & Melania

    In today's show, we talk about the UK election and what if anything it means for us, how Dems are doing on impeachment, Bernie's recent brouhaha over his endorsement of Cenk Uygur for Congress, and right wing freakout over Melania not being named one of the world's most powerful women.

    Kamala drops out, Biden gets mad, Warren defends Medicare 4 All, and Putin spies on Trump

    Kamala drops out, Biden gets mad, Warren defends Medicare 4 All, and Putin spies on Trump

    In today's episode, we discuss Kamala Harris pulling out of the presidential race and the overall issue of diversity (how do you juggle diversity with the absurdity of having two dozen candidates), how Democrats let Medicare 4 All hurt them with the public, and Trump -- yet again! -- playing fast and loose with information security by continuing to use unsecure cell phones even though the Russians, North Koreans, Chinese, Israelis and everyone else are clearly listening. And we also have an interesting discussion about the role of righteous anger in politics (specifically with regards to Pelosi and Biden this week).

    Impeachment, 2020, Conan the dog & War Crimes

    Impeachment, 2020, Conan the dog & War Crimes

    Hey everybody, we taped yesterday but I've been a bit under the weather so finally got to editing today. (We plan to do another show this Friday, so don't worry.) In today's show, we talk impeachment, the 2020 election, the controversy over Conan the dog's gender, Trump's embrace of war crimes, and a little brouhaha on social media over Indian food (and what it says about cancel culture and our priorities). Hope y'all have a great Thanksgiving.

    Impeachment hearing roundup, the first public hearing

    In today's episode, Cliff and I do a major review of yesterday's first public impeachment hearing with State Department officials Ambassador William Taylor and George Kent. We talk about the latest evidence, the latest Republican disinformation talking points, Nancy Pelosi's delicious swipe at Donald Trump today, and we also talk about the elections, including the upcoming tight governor's race in Louisiana and Deval Patrick entering the Democratic presidential race.

Fascinating listening

Always thoughtful and entertaining programmes for those interested and concerned about this American political age

Excellent but editing could be better

Great content, these two are really well-informed. Only thing is that production/editing could be better. I find the sound less clear sometimes when the speakers are on the phone.

Greetings from Oz ,

Thanks

Thoughtful analysis as usual. As an Australian deeply concerned by Trump, yes we are much closer to NK, I need to hear Americans discussing things rationally to counteract the effects of watching Sarah HS press briefings. Thanks for keeping me informed. Please don’t let a government take you backwards on women’s rights, don’t let your democratic institutions be trashed and hollowed out? The FBI is mostly good & essential, the environment matters. USA is immigration. The world is counting on you America.
