Batiste’s whoop

Thanks for including the whoop by Jon Batiste at the beginning of Battle Hymn of the Republic! I missed hearing it.

Trauma at the Border: Not an Interview, an Infomercial

I don't know what the future of Radio Atlantic is going to be. I enjoyed the varied hosts of the first season that made this my favorite political podcast. I have accepted Alex Wagner as the sole host now in the second season because she has a likable style and is generally informed about the issues she has presented. This show with Isaac Dovere (Alex on maternity leave) never got beyond a 41 minute emotional plea to treat immigrants humanely. Of course, who can argue with that? But I am interested in analysis, challenging questions, and coming away from a podcast having learned something that changed my mind. This is a far cry from what drew me to Radio Atlantic at the beginning.

One and Done

Continuing my search of a podcast that addresses ALL members of the Democratic party not just the ultra left... The episdode was an interview with Jennifer Palmieri, who says the DNC "holds our leaders to a higher standard" than the RNC. This after she tells us she worked for Bill Clinton during the Lewinsky scandal and John Edwards after we found out he a secret kid--so I guess higher standards only apply to people who aren't writing her a check. The hypocrisy of the Palmiere and scantimonious attitude of the interviewer is what will re-elect Trump.
