    Biden's Bad Interview, Behind the Beirut Blast, The Karen Bass Experiment

    Join Jim and Greg as they dissect Joe Biden's cringeworthy response to whether he's taken a cognitive test. They also dig into the stunning incompetence in Lebanon that allowed more than 2,700 metric tons of ammonium nitrate to be stored so close to a major population center in Beirut. And as Biden reportedly narrows his VP choice to Kamala Harris and Susan Rice, Jim and Greg examine the brief but intense speculation over California Rep. Karen Bass.

    Join Jim and Greg as they react to the breaking news of a massive explosion in Beirut, Lebanon. They also discuss President Trump's comments on COVID, John Lewis and more in his Axios interview.

    Microsoft & TikTok, Government Power Grab, Scrap the Debates?

    Microsoft & TikTok, Government Power Grab, Scrap the Debates?

    Join Jim and Greg as they are hopeful that a Microsoft purchase of TikTok will protect the privacy of millions of Americans and let everyone keep their little app.  They also slam local officials in Maryland in Virginia who are clearly drunk on power.  And they get a kick out of the obvious timing of a New York Times opinion column suddenly suggesting we ought to do away with presidential debates.

    Americans Sour on China, Exposing Epstein's Friends, Flag Foolishness

    Americans Sour on China, Exposing Epstein's Friends, Flag Foolishness

    Join Jim and Greg as they're encouraged by a new Pew Research survey showing Americans overwhelmingly have negative views on China and believe China bears great responsibility for the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. They also discuss new evidence released from the Ghislane Maxwell case, including a deposition listing Bill Clinton and others as visiting Jeffrey Epstein's private island. And they shake their heads as the owners of a Michigan bed and breakfast reluctantly take down the Norwegian flag on the inn because of hate mail accusing them of flying the Confederate flag.

    EU Sanctions China, The Vote By Mail Fight, COVID Goggles Now?

    EU Sanctions China, The Vote By Mail Fight, COVID Goggles Now?

    Join Jim and Greg as they offer a rare compliment to the European Union for sanctioning China in response to Beijing's crackdown in Hong Kong. They also discuss why voting by mail this year could be a gigantic mess and why President Trump musing about delaying the election is also a big mistake. They roll their eyes as Dr. Fauci suggests covering them with goggles or face shields to protect from COVID. And they remember successful businessman and 2012 presidential candidate Herman Cain, who passed away after a battle with COVID.

    Biden's Cognitive Slide, COVID & the 2024 Campaign, Kennedy's Ironic Complaint

    Biden's Cognitive Slide, COVID & the 2024 Campaign, Kennedy's Ironic Complaint

    Join Jim and Greg as they serve up all crazy martinis today!  First, they cringe as Joe Biden literally forgets where is giving a speech, showing more evidence of decline just weeks before Democrats officially nominate him for president. They also dig into the long game of the Democrats and their media allies, as they hammer the COVID responses of the GOP governors of Texas and Florida.  And they get a kick out of how the Joe Kennedy III Senate campaign is lashing out at Boston Globe after the paper endorsed incumbent Democrat Ed Markey.

More Greg, way less Jim

Below is my original review, but I’m resubmitting to complain about Jim. Not sure if it’s always been this way, and I’m just now noticing, but he takes up all the time when we also want to hear from Greg. He drones on and on, and on The Editors I have to fast forward. Lastly, not sure what’s up with the comedy schtick, but it’s old.

“Great short format highlighting 3 political news stories, and my favorite part is they do a good job of finding under reported items. The hosts are great, including the substitutes.”

Plague Commentary

I have been a loyal listener for many years but Jim’s comments on our response to COVID 19 has driven me away.
