    The “Absolute and Abject Failure” of the GOP: Democratic Stars Joe Neguse and Beto O’Rourke on Trump, Cruz, and Finding Hope

    The “Absolute and Abject Failure” of the GOP: Democratic Stars Joe Neguse and Beto O’Rourke on Trump, Cruz, and Finding Hope

    In this double feature episode of Inside the Hive, cohosts Joe Hagan and Emily Jane Fox interview rising Democratic star Joe Neguse, Congressman from Colorado, about last week’s impeachment trial of Donald Trump and what was and was not achieved after Republicans refused to convict. Neguse takes us behind the scenes with the impeachment managers, including the controversial decision not to call witnesses before a final vote, and considers what lessons Democrats should draw from it. 

    That's followed by Texas Democrat Beto O’Rourke, who talks to Hagan about the state of emergency in Texas and the intransigence of his former rival for Senate, Ted Cruz. O’Rourke lays into Cruz, who flew to Cancún during statewide blackouts: "I don't know how much we were expecting from him to begin with,” he says. “That guy wants nothing to do with government, or at least our form of it.” Whether voters, suffering from food shortages following a freak snow storm, will make the GOP pay—and create an opening for O’Rourke to run for Texas governor in 2022—remains to be seen. But O’Rourke finds optimism for the country in new leaders like Neguse, who he calls “an all-time American hero.”

    Can Trump’s Grip on the GOP Be Loosened?: Republican Congressman Adam Kinzinger Says Yes

    Can Trump’s Grip on the GOP Be Loosened?: Republican Congressman Adam Kinzinger Says Yes

    This week, Adam Kinzinger, Republican of Illinois, joins Inside the Hive to talk about his campaign to steer the GOP away from Donald Trump, the QAnon conspiracy cult, and the insurrection of January 6. In advance of an impeachment trial in the Senate, Kinzinger has allied himself with Wyoming congresswoman Liz Cheney and voted to remove Trump ally and QAnon adherent Marjorie Taylor Greene from her congressional committees. But he acknowledges a tough battle ahead, not least the struggle to bring Trump’s base out of the “fog” of disinformation, comparing the current crossroads to the morning after a Friday-night “bender”: “The easy answer is to drink a Bloody Mary and just feel a little better and start up again,” he says. “Or you can take a look at what you did and…bear the pain a little bit.” The congressman recently started a PAC to support “country first” Republicans and predicts that sanity will prevail and Trump’s support will deteriorate within six months. “[Trump] doesn't have Twitter, he's not blinding people,” he observes. “And I think folks are gonna wake up … and say, ‘The party of Trump is not the party that's going to be in the majority of the future.’”

    “I Don’t Tense Up in Atlanta When I See the Police": An Interview with Author Charles Blow

    “I Don’t Tense Up in Atlanta When I See the Police": An Interview with Author Charles Blow

    This week, Inside the Hive co-host Joe Hagan talks to New York Times columnist Charles M. Blow about his provocative new book, The Devil You Know: A Black Power Manifesto, which proposes a reverse migration of young Black people from northern cities to the South to try replicating what Stacy Abrams achieved in Georgia in the 2020 presidential and congressional races. Post-Civil Rights empowerment for Black populations has failed to materialize, argues Blow, with racism as pernicious, if not more so, in the “liberal” north as the south. The only way for Blacks to claim true power, he says, is through self determination—creating large Black population centers in places like Atlanta and turning the political tide in their direction. Blow paints a searing portrait of fair-weather liberals whose BLM protests last summer he likens to "a social justice Coachella” that ultimately failed to deliver policy changes. “Somehow Black people are supposed to pat white people on the back and say, ‘You're getting there, I'll keep waiting?’” he says, calling Dr. King's dream of white and Black children joining hands a naive vision. "I have three children in this world,” Blow says. “The idea that they can still be fighting some form of the thing that I'm fighting today, when I am gone from this earth, is insane to me.”

Excellent, you know?

The only criticism I have of this podcast, and recognize it’s the type of complaint that cranky oldsters like me make, is the producers’ failure to curb the overuse of the ubiquitous phrase “you know”. Some shows sound like conversations you might hear on the subway surrounded by a group of teenagers describing their weekend.

Out of the fog into truth and reason

Joe Hagan’s Feb 5 2021 interview with Adam Kinzinger, Republican of Illinois, is excellent. We need many more conversations ‘across the aisle’ to start to understand each other as fellow human beings and citizens.

Bring back Nick

Joe Hagan. Emily Jane Fox. Nice people, but I miss Nick Bilton’s bi-polar approach to broadcasting. His humour, his rants against Elon and Zuck are irreplacable. When Nick’s done his rehab, bring him back. Or I’m outa here.

Update - the podcast continues to flounder. Interview w Mass AG Healey was one of EJ Fox’s worst. She let the interview slide off into political boosterism. Too gushy. Hagan likewise is too polite and always injecting his own rather uninteresting history.
