    This is still a punk podcast, so we kick off finding out more about Jimmy's love of punk before turning to politics.
     Jimmy cut ties to the Republicans after Trump was elected as the party's nominee for president in 2016. In doing so, you will hear how he has been blacklisted from the party he called home for 20+ years.
