Social Democracy and Economics with Katie Dahlson!
Comedian Katie Dahlson (@dahlsonator) joins host @daveciaccio to talk about political activism, socialism, democracy, liberalism, conservatism, communism, and all the other isms.

These guys are FUNNY
I love this show! Hilarious, smart, and cool. Like if Bob Hope, Albert Einstein, and James Dean had a baby but it was a podcast. My references are all pre 70’s. Keep the funny coming.
One of the most interesting and hilarious science podcasts!
Enjoyed the first couple of episodes until they started going on transgender rants and political leftist agendas. I wish someone could make a science podcast for everyone and leave politics and religion out of it.
