Episode 262: Aunt Lydia
In this episode we’ll discuss the Senate’s confirmation hearings for Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Aunt Ly—uh, ahem—Amy Coney Barrett from Gil—pardon me—the Seventh Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals. We’ll also talk about the 2020 election, stimulus talks, and we’ll close the show by talking to congressional candidates Christine Olivo and Donna Imam.
Episode 261: Outbreak In The White House
In this episode we’ll discuss the bizarre circumstances surrounding President Trump’s COVID-19 diagnosis as well as the reaction from his cultists. We’ll also discuss the 2020 presidential election, the Supreme Court’s new term, a spat between members of Congress, and the Vice Presidential debate between Kamala Harris and Mike Pence. Finally, we close the show by talking to 2020 congressional candidate Liam O’Mara from California.
Episode 260: Election Fatigue
In this episode we’ll continue our coverage of the exhausting 2020 presidential election: we’ll discuss Trump’s tax returns, his Supreme Court nominee, the first presidential debate, and much more!
Episode 259: Evil Personified
In this episode we’ll discuss the utter loathsomeness of the Republican Party and how they’re hellbent on destroying what’s left of American democracy. Not only are they attempting to hypocritically steal another Supreme Court seat from the Democratic Party, but Trump is encouraging his supporters to intimidate voters at the polls, William Barr is unconstitutionally attempting to criminalize protests across the country, and Trump continues to make outrageously insensitive comments about COVID-19. Ghoulish doesn’t even begin to describe the modern Republican Party. Also, U.S. Senate candidate Paula Jean Swearengin returns to the show after being endorsed by Senator Bernie Sanders to discuss the state of her race against Shelley Moore Capito.
Episode 258: Hell World
In this episode we’ll discuss the wildfires ravaging the west coast as well as the 2020 election—including Trump’s insane interview with Fox News’ Judge Jeanine Pirro and his ABC News town hall where he humiliated himself. We’ll also discuss the Democratic Party’s undemocratic campaign against the Green Party and hear from a multi-millionaire about how “hard” it is to be rich.
Episode 257: Unrest | Episode 257
In this gigantic episode we’ll discuss the civil unrest across the country, Biden’s response to Trump’s attacks, the 2020 general election, and we’ll also have 2020 congressional candidate Adam Christensen on the show!
